5 Interior Design Tips From the Pros

Update Your Home’s Décor With These Interior Design Tips
  • Don’t Shy Away From Technology
    Professional designers use the latest technology to envision new spaces and stay on top of important things like building codes. For non-professionals, there are plenty of free or inexpensive apps for iPhone and Android that can get the job done.
  • Check Building Codes
    While you may think you're fine doing improvements on your own, you might find yourself in hot water when you try to sell your home if projects aren't up to code. When it comes to painting and hanging artwork, your only restrictions are likely to be your homeowner's association or landlord, so be sure to check and make sure you're good to go before you get started. For bigger projects and major renovations, always check with your city or county and ask about permits, codes and other regulations.
  • Make Community Connections
    If it seems like TV designers manage to come up with brilliant fixtures and furnishings for pennies on the dollar, it’s because they do! Most designers have friends and colleagues who help them find great deals and unique pieces and alert them to trending ideas. You can do the same by becoming friendly with your hardware store manager, the paint store salesperson, and even the workers at craft stores who know all about fabrics and DIY projects.
  • Ask for Help
    Even the most skilled designer still needs to enlist the help of a plumber, contractor, painter, or other tradesperson to get the job done right--and you should do the same! If a project is outside your skill set, don't be afraid to hire a qualified pro who will help you bring your vision to reality.
