June Blog: Transforming Your Current Home into Your Forever Home - Making the Most of the Housing Market Dilemma

Elevate Monthly: Insights from Bonae Interiors

With the current challenges in the housing market making it tough for potential buyers to find their dream homes, now is the perfect time to consider alternative options. Rather than waiting for the perfect property to become available, why not turn your current house into your forever home?

In our latest blog post, we explore how home renovations can help you create the ideal living space you've always dreamed of. From updating outdated interiors to reconfiguring layouts for better functionality, our interior design services can turn your current house into the perfect place to call home for years to come.

But where do you start? If you're considering working with an interior designer to transform your space, here are some steps you can take on your own to prepare:

  1. Define Your Goals: Take some time to think about what you hope to achieve with your home renovation project. Are you looking to update the aesthetics, improve functionality, or increase resale value? Having a clear understanding of your goals will help guide the design process.

  2. Gather Inspiration: Start collecting images, magazine clippings, and ideas that inspire you. Pinterest and Houzz are great online platforms for creating mood boards and gathering inspiration for your project. Pay attention to color schemes, furniture styles, and design elements that resonate with you.

  3. Assess Your Budget: Before meeting with an interior designer, it's important to have a realistic budget in mind. Consider how much you're willing to invest in your project and prioritize your spending accordingly. Be sure to factor in both design fees and construction costs.

  4. Evaluate Your Space: Take a critical look at your current space and identify any areas that need improvement. Note any structural issues, storage challenges, or design features that you'd like to address during the renovation process. This will help your designer understand your needs and priorities.

  5. Research Interior Designers: Take the time to research interior designers in your area and review their portfolios. Look for designers whose style aligns with your aesthetic preferences and who have experience working on projects similar to yours. Don't be afraid to reach out and schedule consultations with multiple designers to find the best fit for your project.

By taking these steps to prepare yourself before meeting with an interior designer, you'll be better equipped to articulate your vision and collaborate effectively on transforming your current home into your forever home.

I know a lot of people will say they don’t know what their budget is. If that’s the case how do you handle this?

If someone is unsure of their budget, we suggest they focus on 3 key components: quality, features, and price. Choose 2 non-negotiables, and be flexible on the 3rd. This helps tailor options to their priorities while staying within a manageable budget.
