"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep."
~ Scott Adams
This house was made into a home after several months of designing and architecting. I took this 1940's brick cottage and reimagined it's heavy wallpaper and tired wood floors, into a beautiful cozy and comfortable space.
Feel confident in your next home renovation with these simple steps!
If you're looking to renovate a house, but don't know where to start, then this guide is for you. In this article, we will discuss how to renovate a house using design and architecture principles.
First of all, it's important to decide what type of renovation you need - cosmetic or structural. If the goal is just Cosmetic renovations such as changing the color or style of the walls then follow our simple steps below:
Design your rooms based on their function rather than their layout. For example, bedroom should be designed like an office so that it can act as both a sleeping and working environment. This will help with organizing and streamlining your home while maintaining its functionality.
Use similar colors throughout each room in order to create balance and harmony within the space. This also makes transitions from one room to another easier since colors are associated with certain emotions (e.g., blue tends to calm down someone feeling anxious).
Choose neutral furniture that won't clash with other fabrics or furnishings in the home and opt for pieces that can be easily replaced when needed (e..g., lamps rather than paintings).
Avoid large scale items that take up too much space--they'll only obstruct views and distract from surrounding objects . Instead choose smaller decorative pieces or sculptures placed strategically around the room . These small details will make a big impact overtime!
