Perhaps spending more time than usual in your St. Louis home has inspired you to redecorate. Whether you’re making some minor changes to your bedroom or completely updating your living room, redecorating can be a great way for homeowners to have some fun and experiment with style on any budget. If you’re considering redecorating, here are some important questions to ask yourself before getting started:

What is my motivation?

Why did you pick this room to redecorate? Is it functional but you don’t enjoy the aesthetic? Or perhaps it isn’t meeting your family’s needs? Is it an underutilized space you’d like to give a new purpose? Whatever the case, identifying this before you embark on your redecorating journey can make for a much smoother process.

What is my inspiration?

Once you’ve clarified why you want to make some changes, you’ll want to set your sights on where you’re going. What do you want the space to look and feel like? If you’re hoping to make the space more functional, start with some reflection on your family’s use of the space. What works and what doesn’t? From there, browse sites like Pinterest and interior design blogs to help solidify your vision for the space.

What is my budget?

This is an essential question. How much are you planning to spend on this redecorating project? Are you going to be rearranging and repurposing the furniture you already have or upgrading to new pieces? If you’re repainting, will you be doing the work or hiring a professional? Redecorating can work on any budget, it’s simply important to determine what that budget is in advance.

What are my expectations?

Finally, all of these questions will inform your expectations. You’ll know what you want to change, how you want to change it, and what your resources are to do so. It’s important to get clear on your expectations before you get started on the project. This will help you stay on track and feel satisfied with the end result.
