There are a lot of elements to consider when putting together a room and it’s easy to get overwhelmed, especially if you don’t have a background in decorating.

Decorating Dilemmas Virtual Decorating Can Solve

1. Space Planning

One of the most challenging, yet important aspects of creating a comfortable space is the arrangement of the furniture. It’s not always obvious how a room should be laid out. Lots of things come into play, such as how you plan to use the room, where the traffic patterns should be, and how to best make use of its size and shape. The wrong furniture arrangement can make a small space feel even smaller and a large space feel cold and disjointed. It helps to have a professional eye look at your space and create a plan that will suit your lifestyle and maximize what the room has to offer.

2. Mixing Styles

It’s not uncommon to be drawn to more than one decorating style. If you’re feeling on the fence about which way you should lean or how to mix them together in a way that flows, a professional decorator can help you figure it out. We know what elements from each style go together and can help you narrow down what you love most about them. When you live with someone else, chances are your design styles could be very different. As an outside opinion, we can serve as the mediator to help you come to a compromise and mix your styles together in a way that makes you both happy.

3. Choosing Colors

Color is one of the most transformative elements for a space, but it can be difficult to settle on a color palette when decorating a room. There are so many different shades and tones to choose from, and combining colors that compliment each other isn’t always as obvious as picking your two favorite colors and going to town. As decorators, we have an intimate understanding of the psychology behind different colors and how to use them to tell a story in your home. We’ll ask you the right questions to figure out exactly what colors you are most drawn to and would suit your home the best, then give you a plan of action to implement them in your space.

4. Choosing Patterns + Textures

Layering in patterns and textures into a space will instantly make it feel more dynamic. There are so many to choose from that it can often become overwhelming if you aren’t familiar with what to look for and how to make them flow with the rest of the elements in your space. With virtual decorating, we will help you pick out the exact patterns and textures to use in your space, or give you guidance on what to look for. We’ll take it account whether you want a more minimalist look with fewer accents or want to mix several together to create a bolder aesthetic.

5. Shopping

Shopping is a lot more fun when you have a game plan. There are so many different places to go both online and in person, and when you do, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the myriad of options. We take into account budget, quality, and lifestyle when recommending places for you to shop. We’ll give you the exact locations, photographs of what you are looking for, and make sure it will all fit perfectly into your budget. All the guesswork is removed so you can enjoy the shopping experience and get your home put together faster, so you can start enjoying it. Excited to try virtual decorating? Click here to learn more!
