Don't be discouraged if you have minimal resources to apply to your interior design ideas and projects. The huge money saving resources listed in this article will help you create that home environment you have always wanted for you and your loved ones if, you are patient.
Interior design is not a simple act of instant gratification. It's steady, incremental changes accomplished as time and circumstance allow.
The most comfortable and well designed homes have been created over time. Don't be fooled by those 60 minute television shows. What you don't see is hours, weeks, months of preparation by a team of experts to put it all together, lickety split.
But for real, every day people, like you and me it's a step by step process.
It takes time to locate just the right furniture piece for your room and to buy it, find it or create it with amazing affordability.
Believe me when I say - patience is one of the most important aspects to DIY interior design.
That said, start by having a clear idea of the interior design look you want to create. Try not to be too specific about each item that way you will be able to apply some creative license to the over all design.
How does this work?
Let's use a table lamp as an example. Maybe you have one currently in your home that no longer fits into the pending design scheme. Can you repaint it, add a new lampshade or change out the base? By being creative with what you already own is an excellent way to bring quality items up to date.
Or maybe that bathroom hutch can be turned into a dining room buffet by giving it a fresh finish and changing the door pulls to ones that better suit your decor ideas.
Don't settle for something that you simply don't LOVE. If you can't find that piece just yet, wait. Don't be afraid to leave a room looking blank or sparse for a season as you wait for the perfect opportunity to present itself.
It could be in the form of: - A Seasonal sale - A Scratch and Dent Clearance - Going Out of Business Liquidation - A Yard or Moving Sale - Craig's List Item - Inheritance - Real Estate Model Home Furniture Discounts
While you wait be sure to review your interior ideas and goals frequently so when you come across an item you will be able to act quickly.
This system has been proven to me over and over again. One of my favorite experiences happened a few years ago, though it had been anticipated for several years prior to its fulfillment.
I had in my head I needed, wanted a beveled mirror with a gold ornately decorated round plaster frame. I knew I could not afford it and really had no idea how to go about acquiring one. So, I waited AND kept my eyes open. Be it window shopping, antique hopping, or yard sale stopping I would be ever alert to catch a glimpse of "my mirror".
Then one day, though sad, a member of my community had died and his children were cleaning out his house and placing items near the road for anyone to take. Lo and behold, I spotted it. The round mirror I had always wanted. It was perfect. And, best of all - it was FREE!
Today, years later, my "miracle mirror" still brings me great joy by not only accenting my wall beautifully but as a monumental reminder to the power of patience in interior design.
