Know Your Floor Plan
The most important thing before shopping to create a stunning interior is to know your floor plan, because size matters when it comes to decorating a home. You should know the dimensions of each room of the house so you’re aware of what works and what doesn’t when you’re in the store and find that perfect furniture piece.
Moodboards Really Help
Creating moodboards isn’t just a fun way to put all your ideas into one place and see how it all works together, it’s also really important when it comes to combining colors, textures and fabrics while relating to the space you’re trying to decorate. You can keep these moodboards with you while you go shopping and it will surely help you find the furniture and lighting pieces you need to complete your decor.
Find A Statement Piece
When designing your space, make sure you find a statement piece that will stand out on your decor. This can be a unique lighting piece or a velvet sofa or armchair, even a brass side table or patterned rug. Whatever you choose, it will certainly make it easier to decorate around it. Make sure this piece is timeless and don’t fall into trendy traps because you will most likely have to replace it in a few years.
Keep Your Budget In Mind
Keep yourself organized and within your budget. You can budget what you want to spend in furniture, accessories, lighting, and decor, so it’s easier to stick to it while you’re shopping. It’s easy to prepare beforehand instead of just choosing what you find and like because that will surely amount to a number you might not be prepared for.
Accessories Are A Must

Accessories are extremely important to make everything come together and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it! You can get some good vintage finds or go for simpler accessories, either way you’re bound for success!
