Home decorating is one of the keys to making the most out of a home. Do it right and you can turn a pedestrian home into a castle.
Really good interior designers interview family members prior to making a plan and recommendations for changes in a homes interior design and decoration. You and your family can benefit if you take the same approach when youre in a do it yourself mode. It doesnt matter whether you are moving to a new home and have a big project or are just freshening up one room. Family interviews are the place to start.
What Activities Need to be Accommodated?
Large project or small, begin by figuring out how your family is going to use the space. Lets assume were talking about a whole house. Meet with each family member and ask them how they feel about an array of things. Dont forget to answer for yourself, too.
Consider the following issues with family members:
1. Will reading be a popular activity?
2. TV and movie viewing?
3. Playing electronic games?
4. Computer use for homework or business?
5. Sleepovers for the younger generation?
