How to Begin a Rental Decorating Project 


You have your new place and now you need to fill it. Before you begin a decorating project you first need to determine your resources,  what is your ideal living environment, and how much you can afford spend to pull it all together. 


Here are some questions to ask yourself to understand where you are and what you are planning to do with you living space. 

  • What are my specific rental guidelines and limitations.

  • How long do you plan to stay in your present home?

  • What type of lifestyle do you lead ?  (entertain guests, late nights, holiday guests)

  • What activities do you do in each room ?

  • Do you have children or are you planning to start a family ? What are their ages and needs?

  • How much space do you need for leisure activities? (office, study, sewing, reading, TV).

  • Is there enough sleeping space for everyone and any guests ?

  • Do you have enough storage ?

  • Do you know your style ?

  • Count your rooms and list multi-purpose uses (example, homework, bills, computer).

  • Write down the furniture you currently own, what you like and what you dislike. (Be ready to get rid of what you don't want to make room for what you do want.)

  • Have you considered a color scheme, or do you have a favorite color. 

  • List color any pieces of furniture, fabrics or finds that would be a good start to develop a color scheme. 

  • How much do you want to spend either monthly or annually on your interior environment ?

After answering these questions you should have a fairly clear picture of what you are working with or without.  Use this outline to help you establish your living style and plan. 


Steps To Success

  1. Create a file of clippings and samples that show the style and colors you would like to use in your home. 

  2. Draw a floor plan of the room you will be decorating. 

  3. Use "take inventory" questions to evaluate your existing environment.

  4. Create a Budget that works in with your financial situation.

  5. Plan a schedule of what you will be doing when.
