Questions To Ask Yourself When You Design Your Home's Interior

*This is a collaborative post

Designing an interior is the kind of thing that can be surprisingly challenging to get right. It takes a lot of imagination to be able to picture the changes you want to make exactly, and there are so many options for every little thing that it can be hard to know which to go for in the first place. If you are thinking of redesigning your home’s interior, you can make it easier on yourself, and create a much better end result, simply by asking yourself a few key questions as you go through the process. Let’s take a look at what questions you might want to ask.

How Can You Reflect Your Lifestyle?
In essence, you want your home’s interior to be a reflection of yourself, and that means that you need to think carefully about what your lifestyle is like and how best you can reflect it. It can be hard to get to the bottom of this at first, for the simple fact that we are each generally far too close to our own lives to be able to have a clear picture on it. So take a step back, try to look at your lifestyle from a different perspective, and see whether you can’t gain some ideas that way.

Which Colours Would Be Best?
It is a good idea to ask this one early on, as it is likely going to affect pretty much everything else that you can do in your home design. As long as the colours are right, you are much more likely to enjoy and be happy with the redesign, so it’s something you should not skip over if you can help it. Just think about what colours you would generally prefer to have, and make sure you are thinking about your furniture as well as the walls and how it will all go together. Ask yourself what colours go with grey painted furniture if that is the look you like, for instance. There are no hard and fast rules here.

How Do You Function In The Space?
One of the real rookie errors that people tend to make with doing their own home interior design is failing to consider their actual lived experience in the home. You need to get very clear on how it is that you actually function in each room, as that is going to have to be considered in the design itself if it is to work out. The clearer you get on this, the better, so be sure not to overlook it. Try to picture as clearly as you can exactly how you are actually going to move around and be in the space. This is something that will drastically increase your chances of success with your interior design.

If you ask yourself these questions, you are going to be a lot more likely to design the home that’s really right for you. Make sure you answer them honestly and don’t overlook any of them.
