If you really do not know how to go about making a house a home then it may be worth considering employing an interior designer.
This will not come cheap but these professionals know all the tricks and will be able to make your dream home a reality.
When choosing an Interior designer try to get recommendations from friends or family, if that is not possible then make sure you see work that has already been done.
Do not assume that just because someone has letters after their name that they will do a good job. Do not be rushed into decisions make sure you are completely happy with the proposed interior designs.
Make sure you know all the colors and textures that are included in the scheme do not just go on a computer produced drawing. A good designer will have plenty of patience and will only be happy if their customers are too.
If you really do not have a clue of how you want your house to look, then as long as you make your designer fully aware of the function of a space and lifestyle, then that should be enough for them to put together a suitable scheme.
If you need plenty of hidden storage then make it clear, clutter will soon build up if there is nowhere to put anything. Often seeing how you live now will be a big help in planning what you need and what will suit you.
Sometimes you may have a particular object or heirloom, make sure they see it and can include it into the scheme.
