1. Define Your Vision:

Before diving into any decorating project, it's crucial to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve. Gather inspiration from magazines, Pinterest, or interior design websites. Create a mood board to visualise your ideas and establish a color scheme and style.


2. Set a Budget:

Determine how much you're willing to spend on your room makeover. Consider all costs, including furniture, paint, decor, and any professional services you might need. Having a budget in mind will help you make informed choices throughout the decorating project.


3. Declutter and Organise:

Start by decluttering the room. Donate or discard items you no longer need or use. Organise belongings and store them temporarily in another room. This will provide you with a clean canvas to start your decorating project.

4. Assess the Space:

Take detailed measurements of the room, including wall dimensions, doorways, and windows. This information will be essential when choosing furniture and planning the layout. By using Wizard Fix you can have a professional handyman come and measure the area for you. Also, note any architectural features or structural issues that may affect your decorating project decisions.


5. Plan the Layout:

Based on your measurements and vision, create a room layout. Decide where furniture and key elements like lighting fixtures and wall art will go. Ensure that the layout enhances the flow and functionality of the space.


6. Choose Color and Paint:

Select your color palette and paint colors. Consider factors such as natural light, room size, and the mood you want to create. Purchase paint samples to test on the walls before committing to a color.

7. Select Furniture and Decor:

Research and choose furniture pieces and decor items that align with your style and budget. Consider the scale of the furniture in relation to the room's size. Don't forget to include storage solutions if needed.
