Getting the itch to redecorate your room? It happens to the best of us, and sometimes, hiring an interior designer to do so may be out of the budget. That doesn’t mean you can’t get some inspiration online to do it yourself! That is why we’ve collected some of the most interesting and stunning room designs to get the creative juices flowing.
When it comes to designing rooms, there is no right or wrong. However, without guidelines, we find it too hard to conceptualize our ideas. If you’re interested in finding out how to get started on decorating your room like a pro, keep on reading.
Pick A Theme
When it comes to visualizing your dream room in detail, it can be a struggle. What can help with your conceptualization stage is to think about the general feel or mood you want your room to evoke. For example, if you like a relaxing feel, basing your room around light neutrals, or pastels can help keep the room light and calming. These colors can then inspire the decor you choose — like light wooden finishes look great for a minimal and neutral look. If you’re leaning towards something more energetic, vibrant colors and statement furniture pieces can work out well.
That being said, sticking to a color palette will help you keep your concept consistent and cohesive. A general rule of thumb is to stick with three colors. If you have trouble deciding on what three colors to choose, there are a lot of free color theme generators online you can visit. If you’re thinking of sticking to an all-white design, playing around with textures will help you create dimension at home.
Seek Inspiration Stations
In the age of the Internet, you practically have access to endless information instantly. This is why the next time you’re ever in a creative rut, you can always rely on the web for inspiration. You no longer have to pay for interior design magazines, you can just get some with a simple click. There are tons of rooms you can model your own after! If you can’t find one that hits the spot, you can start creating a mood board that has the desired elements of your dream room. With a mood board, you can see whether your vision for your room works well. It’s like a visual brainstorming session for you, which can really help you work out what you really want for your room.
Sticking To A Realistic Plan
Now that you’ve got your mood boards and room inspirations in hand, it’s time to consider if you can work it around your lifestyle and your budget. Take a closer look into your current needs — do you have pets? Will they have a designated space? Is the furniture pet-proof? Choosing durable materials would be something you’d have to look into. Plus, if you work from home often, designing an office space would be in your favor.
Additionally, working around a set budget ensures that you don’t overspend and that you streamline the items you invest in. A statement piece or two is fine, but remember to prioritize your budget in all of your purchase decisions.

Do Your Old Things Still Spark Joy?
Before you get to buying new things for your room, ensure that you’ve decluttered. As the saying goes, a clear space is a clear mind. The last thing you need is piling on more things atop another. You can begin by getting rid of things that you don’t need or use frequently anymore. Of course, designing your new room still means keeping some personal elements — but you can’t start anew with too many old items. Stick to only important items and work it up from there.
Visualize Your Vision With Online Tools
Other than a mood board to help you see your concepts, there are online tools that can help you visualize a floorplan. This can come in handy if you’re working with limited space and dimensions are essential. When it comes to measurements, a lot of people tend to neglect them. They only think about whether a certain furniture piece would look good in their space, instead of whether it would fit in their space. Plus, what if you can’t get your desired piece through the door? Not being able to fit in the rattan headboard of your dreams through to your bedroom would be quite the conundrum. So invest in some good measuring tape — you won’t regret it.
Working With What You Already Have
Let’s say you’re not working from scratch and you’re looking to just change things up at home. To help your creative direction, use your room’s existing elements, like floors, walls, lighting fixtures, and more. If you are working with an empty space, establishing a strong foundation is a priority. This means deciding on what type of floors, walls, lighting, fixtures, and window treatments before choosing furniture or fixtures to put in the room.
After you’ve decided on your foundation, you can move on to basic furniture pieces, and then to accessories. For example, you can decide on a bed frame or a sofa, depending on what room you’re designing. After that, you can look into bedsheets, pillows, rugs, wall art, and so on.

And there you have it! With these basic tips in hand, you now have the foundation to get started on designing your new room.
