One of the best tips that are usually given by experts in interior designing is this: that you should definitely make use of designs which excite you. This is basically true, for in the conceptualization process of the interior design of your home, you should zero in on a particular concept that really excites you. Then, you can bring this exciting concept to actual fruition with excitement and gusto. However, if you start with a flat idea, it is quite difficult to come up with the best design, for the initial concept is already flat and stale.
The second tip that you should bear in mind is this: “You should have a great belief in your capacity to realize this novel concept.” If you got a high level of confidence that what you conceive will be brought into actuality, then you are already “in” for a good start. Your level of confidence usually is the inner driving force that would make you actualize what you have conceptualized.
It is important to take a look at your budget whenever you want to do the design of the interior of your home. The usual culprit behind a half-baked interior design is the lack of budget. If you got unlimited budget, for example, you can readily let loose of your creative imagination and think and conceive of great novel plans, without fear of not realizing your conceptual plans due to budget constraint. It is a no-holds-barred scenario, if you got unlimited budget. Say for instance you want to create unique and highly customized window blinds samples, your concept of blinds would definitely be limited by your running budget. Your tendency would be to fine-tune your design with your budget, which is a very limiting fact and is mentally constricting. Yet, with unlimited budget, your design would definitely know no limit. Given your self-confidence and self-assurance, your design would surely be avant-garde and progressive if you got unlimited budget. Likewise, it will surely be a state-of-the-art design which will readily baffle and perplex the “would-be” visitors of your home. Moreover, there will always be a tendency on your part— given an unlimited budget—to push your mind beyond its comfort zones, and conceptualize something that would be cutting-edge. The amount of creative juices that we pour in our design is often conditioned and limited by the materials, contemporary ideas, and the amount of budget at hand.
Interior designs are always couched in the context in which the designer finds himself. Hence, many of us are always taken aback and greatly surprised, every time we discover someone who is anachronous and out of place with his contemporary; and we can’t help but praise or vilify something that is beyond the present context of interior designing. Likewise, we are readily baffled upon seeing a design that is incongruous with the contemporary concepts of interior designs. The brave souls of interior designing, however, would readily defy the conventional concepts, and would try to reach new heights which have never been reached and achieved before.
