Have A Plan

Above all, it's importnat that you go into the process of transforming you home with a plan. Ask yourself what you want your home to be, how it should be themed and so on. Each room should have its own style, but there should be an overall "theme" to your home. Take a look at some of the best interior design blogs that are out there and wait for inspiration to strike. Then, see how you'll incorporate your ideas into the shape, size, and style of your house.

Create A Budget

How, it would be lovely if we were one of those famous millions and we could design our homes exactly as we wanted, without giving how much everything costs a second thought. Alas, we're not. But that doesn't meant we have to settle for less than what we're happy with! Figuring out a budget for your decor will let you understand what can be done; if something is over budget, refigure plans and go down a different route. Whatever you decide to do, you'll need to have some cash to play with, so look at secure loans or dip into the savings. And make sure you're keeping a space open in the budget to add the fun factor to your home, too!

Think Long Term

It's easy to get carried away with what's in style right now, but it's also important to remember that you'll want to live in this home for the foreseeable future and you won't be able to consider it "perfect"if it doesn't age well. Be wary of following those designs that look too modern; you want to be sure that your home won't look oddly outdated in the blink of an eye.

Extra Attention To Key Areas

You won't get everyting about your home exactly right. If you're going to make mistakes, make sure that they're not in one of the key areas in the home. These places -the living room, bedrom, bathroom and kitchen - should be given extra attention and allocated a greater share of the budget.

Don't Forget The Fun 

Finally, don't forget to add the fun! Having a home that looks great will be a start, but this is the modern age and modern homes should have an element of the fun factor in them. Adding things like a surround system, cool reading nooks, or even a man cave or similarly entertaining room will make sure you're never bored in your perfect home.
