Preparing for a Re-Design In Your Home


When you've decided that you'd like to go a different direction with the decor in your home, the process has only just begun. While the fun part is coming to our home interiors store at the Lake of the Ozarks to pick out your new style, there are a few steps you can take beforehand to make the transition easier. Whether you like to redecorate every season or you've been due for a re-design for the last decade, John Elliott Interiors would like to help you get started. Here are a few things you can do to prepare your space and get the design started on the right foot.

Evaluate Your Space

What space do you want to re-design? Is it a space that has a clear purpose, like the kitchen, or is it a space that could have a new goal, like a spare bedroom? Do you want to continue using this space as you have been or will you go a new direction with it? It's important to decide this ahead of time so you know exactly which direction you want to go in your space before you start purchasing decorations.

Start a Style Board

Pinterest is a great way to put all of your ideas in one place. If you're more of a hands-on person, you can cut pages out of magazines that show what your new style should look like. Do you have a specific color that you want to plan your design around? Maybe a specific furniture piece? It's important to let your Lake of the Ozarks interior designer know about this so they can create your custom style.

Repurpose, Reuse, or Relocate

The difference between designing a new home, and redesigning your current home is that you most likely already have a room full of belongings. Take some time to evaluate what you have in your home and what you're going to do with those items. You can repurpose the items in your space by adding something new to change the look. This would apply for vases or candle stands. Maybe you can add some new floral arrangements and greenery around your item to give it a fresh look. You can reuse items from your space by moving them to other rooms in your home. Maybe you don't have a use for the red couch in your living room anymore, but it would look great in your media room. Finally, some items will need to be relocated. You can sell them, donate them, or give them away to friends or family. One room only needs a specific number of knick-knacks and furniture. If the current ones in your space don't work with your new decor - find a new home for them.

Consult with Your Designer

Finally, you should schedule a consultation with your interior designer. This is a great opportunity to show us what you want to achieve in your space, talk about the flow of your area, and more. Bring your lookbook in, and we'll look through it with you to help you find the exact direction you'd like to go. This is also a great opportunity for us to walk through our Lake of the Ozarks home interiors store and pick out the pieces and styles that you want to define your space with - especially if you don't even know where to start.
