Prepare for Redecoration: 7 Signs You're Ready

Do you find yourself dreaming about a fresh coat of paint or the brand-new carpet on your wood flooring? If so, then it may be time to redecorate. Redecorating can be expensive and stressful, but with these 7 signs that you are ready for change, you'll know when the time is right. 

1)   You are tired of looking at the same old things.

●   You don't like your furniture anymore, or maybe you want a new color palette.

●   Your walls and wood flooring need an update to match those changes in your design taste.

●   You have been thinking about changing out that dated rug for something more modern.

2)   The children are out of the house.

●   If you have kids, they may be influencing your design decisions and also making a mess—especially if they're still in high school!

●   Getting rid of their furniture could make room for some new pieces that would look great with your newly redecorated home.

3)   You are ready to get rid of the furniture that no longer matches your style.

●   You may have been thinking about getting new things for a long time but didn't want to spend money on something you'll only use for a few years.

●   Now is your chance to trade in those old pieces and start fresh with some newer styles!

4)   You want to get a more modern look.

●   Maybe you've decided that your home needs less clutter, or maybe the furniture is too dark and heavy for space.

●   There are lots of ways to create a fresh new look with some redecoration!

5)   You've been wanting to paint your walls.

●   Painting the room is a great way to get rid of that old wallpaper or color, and it's an inexpensive update!

●   You may be able to take on this project yourself while also saving money and getting some extra exercise in the process.

●   It's important not to spend money on something that will only be used for a few years at the most, so consider your long-term goals when selecting paint colors or patterns.

6)   You need a new sofa or chair.

●   Maybe you're looking for something more comfortable to sit on, or maybe your current furniture needs an update

●   A good way of figuring out what might work is by visiting some local stores and seeing what they have!

7)   You've accumulated a lot of extra things.

●   It's important to declutter your space, and often times this can be done by donating some items or selling them at a consignment shop

●   Your home should only contain the necessary furniture pieces for what you need, so if you've accumulated a lot of extra items, it's time to get rid of them with some redecoration.

The feeling of anticipation you get when painting a room is one of the most exciting feelings. You can see your space coming to life, and it feels so good! But how do you know if now is actually the best time for redecorating? These are the signs when you should know you need redecorating.
