1. Plan your room on paper. The biggest problems often have to do with scale. Pieces are just too big, won’t fit through the door or up the stairs, or just stand out like an elephant in the room. The right piece in the wrong dimensions will never look right.When I design custom furniture for my clients, it has to be the right scale and fit through all the doorways, up the stairs and occasionally in elevators. Space planning is easy to skip, but this is where problems can be caught early on. We use specialized software, but you can easily draw your room on graph paper (¼ inch works well; if your room is small, you can double the scale and use 2 squares per foot.) Then make cutouts of the furniture pieces you already have and arrange them on your floor plan before you purchase a new piece. Arming yourself with this information will simplify your search and narrow down the choices.

9 Planning Musts Before You Start a Makeover 1. Plan your room on paper. The biggest problems often have to do with scale. 2. Measure everything. The old saying, “Measure twice, cut once” is never more important than in space planning. Measure your existing pieces but also the doorways (both width and height), ceiling height, hallways and staircases. 3. Consider function. How will the room be used? Be clear on the primary function of your room. Then consider how you can address secondary uses such as entertaining. 4. Keep a file. Create an ideabook to collect images that show looks and ideas you love. 5. Prepare a budget. 6. Prepare to depart from your budget. There will be times when reallocating funds from one item to another while still keeping the overall budget in balance just makes sense.7. Ask for help. 8. Plan the transition. Find a home for your previously loved pieces. 9. Don’t be in a hurry. Be patient and allow time to discover the right design.

hate seeing costly mistakes in design. But what frustrates me the most is when the homeowner could have planned planning Planning before you purchase furniture.......accordingly to easily prevent the mistake. Sure, mishaps are going to happen. But with proper planning, you’ll likely find that your mistakes will occur only on paper, and not after you’ve already maxed out your credit cards. Here are nine planning guidelines to live by before you start making purchases.
