I was recently out shopping, and an idea hit me like a ton of bricks. If you’re looking to remodel your house and need design ideas, “just look around.”
Sound easy? Well it is!!!
A great place to start getting ideas for designing your home is basically all around you. Places like restaurants, upscale hotels, shops in a mall or the mall open areas are filled with design ideas. Think about it for a second.
Sure they are businesses driven with a purpose of selling a product or service. But businesses have to have an element of design to attract possible clientele. They want their area to be welcoming and comfortable so customers will be interested in coming in. It’s not just the product that brings in the customer, it is also the atmosphere.
From a flooring perspective, a lot of businesses have invested in mosaic tile designs or exotic hardwoods to furnish their space and make it feel like a home, or a home away from home. Designer carpets also are prevalent in these areas.
Now these may or may not be the products you were considering for your home. But the key is that you can build off of ideas that you see in your everyday life. Maybe you see a color you like or a pattern of carpet or tile you like.
So next time you’re out running errands, or just going out for dinner, take a moment and gather in the atmosphere around you. You just never know how something is going to strike you and give you the best idea for you.
