How to Choose the Perfect New Home Design!


Thinking about redesigning your home? John Elliott Interiors is the best interior design company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we are here to help! It can be difficult to choose a new interior design when you have been living in a home with the same design for years. It is easy to get used to the way things are and not know where to get started. Read on to learn some great tips from our team of expert designers at John Elliott Interiors!

What Needs to Change?

Why have you decided to redesign your home? The motivation behind your redesign is a great place to get started on finding new inspiration. You know you hate the couch in your living room, but why? Is the material hard to clean and stuffy? Is the color drab and drawing the room down? Is the shape out of style? Finding the places in your home that are driving the new design is important so you know which fresh new direction your instincts are taking you.

Take note of the items you are still in love with and why you like them. Is the coffee table a unique piece that you treasure and love having at the center of your living space? Pay attention to the material, shape, and style of the pieces you love and find similar pieces and styles to go with them.

How Do You Use It?

Thinking about how you want to use the room to determine what kind of furniture and what style of decor to use. If you primarily use your basement as a crafting room, it makes more sense to surround yourself with inspiration and a clean design rather than a dark tone with heavy furniture. That darker room may be perfect for an in-home movie theater though!

Rooms designed for entertaining should have plenty of seating and areas to gather together. It doesn't have to be one large empty space, however. In fact, a design with multiple seating areas is more conducive to a fun and engaging get-together than a wide-open space is. 

Your Personality

Take into account your personal style and interests when choosing a design. If you and your housemates are into rustic decor, aged items, and ironwork, that could be the perfect place to begin! Then you know that modern plastic furniture and neon colors are not for you. 

Save Images

Look through home decor magazines and tear out pages for inspiration, or browse the ever-popular website Pinterest for room decor ideas.
