Here are a few bullets to think about before jumping into a reno or redecoration.

You don't always have to choose paint first. If you find a piece you love, you can choose paint based off that.

Don't buy furniture without measuring first. It can be hard to judge the scale of furniture when it's sitting in a showroom. Come prepared with measurements of rooms, and how much space you're willing to sacrifice for your new furniture pieces.

Shop in more than one store. You may have a go-to spot for your new decor, but be sure to shop around a bit. Especially with all the online options, you may find something you love, that you can order and have delivered to you with just a few clicks.

You do not have to buy the whole set. While furniture sets area guaranteed match, it is okay to buy one piece you love, and look around for something to compliment it. Your furniture selections do not have to match or be identical.

Be careful not to make too many bold choices, or too few! It can be great to branch outside of your comfort zone and spice things up, but you also want to be cautions not to buy too many bold pieces that overpower one another.
