In order to redesign your home, you need to look for inspiration. Start by visiting your favorite homes from friends and family. Take an idea from every house and create a plan for your home.
- Make a plan
The first step to redesign your home is to make a good plan. For this, you need to make a list of all the ideas you get from other houses. To avoid forgetting important details, get a photo camera whenever you visit friends or attend open houses. Make a list of all the design ideas you like.
- Reduce your energy costs
If you own an older house, it most probably has a poor insulation. To save money on electricity you need windows with insulated glass. This allows you to use the energy and heat from the sun. You might also consider energy efficient heat pumps and furnaces.
- Design your home for maximum storage space
Design your kitchen and the rest of the rooms to gain as much storage space as possible. Consider installing more shelves. Another good tip is to use the empty space from under the stairs as a storage area. With a few simple ideas, a small house can become very spacious.
