When redecorating it's important to think carefully about what you want to achieve. Ask yourself different questions like "Do I just want to update rooms and make it more modern?' or "Do I want to try and change the whole atmosphere and appearance of my home?"
Once you have decided what you want to achieve, the next step is to start planning your redecorationg process into different steps, this is important because you could do somthing that can lengthen the process.
For example, you don’t want to fit your new carpets before you have stripped and painted the walls, as the new carpets are prone to having paint being splattered or spilt onto them.
Here is a quick example of a redecorating plan for painting/wallpapering a room:
1. Buy Your Materials – paint, white spirit, sand paper, wallpaper etc
2. Protect your furniture – either move it out of the room, or cover the floor and furniture with dust sheets
3. Prepare your surfaces – sand down and wipe surfaces ready for the new paint or paper
4. Paint or wallpaper.
5. Soft furnishings should only be added once the paint has dried.
