Don’t know where to begin to improve your home or office? There are some important things to know before you get the interior improvement ball rolling and DMC is here to help you with tips to get your man space started.
I find with many of my male clients, they have been thinking about making changes to their home for months before they get in touch with me. More often than not, fixing up their place constantly gets put in the ‘too hard basket’ or the ‘I’ll think about it after my next work trip basket’. Sound familiar?
For busy men whos job is their priority, making decisions at work is a walk in the park compared to making long-term decisions for their home. Especially considering, interior, homeware and furniture shops can be the land of the unknown for many gents. There is also the fear of ‘what if I get it wrong!?’.
To give you a hand, here are my top free resources to help you through the beginning stages of your man space makeover:
SIT BACK, TAKE A MOMENT, THEN PLAN
Like anything that seems like a big job, it’s best to go one step at a time. So, first step: evaluate what you’ve got and what you need. Have a read of this article for some further info on how to work through the inventory stage before you step foot in a furniture showroom or online shop.
LET’S TALK MONEY
The last thing you want to do is rush in and buy furniture that you are not confident about and believe me, it is beyond the buyers remorse you have when you buy the wrong shirt. Furniture is big, can be expensive and can’t be shoved to the back of your wardrobe with its tags still on it. The article on How To Know What To Budget will give you an insight into the value of all things home.
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE A DESIGN STYLE
There are so many options of styles out there that it can be a little overwhelming when pulling your furniture choices together. Add the latest trends, colours and fashions into the mix and you can end up not knowing what goes together. These tips take things back to basics and are simple rules to follow.
