Transform Your Home into the Space of Your Dreams: Tips from a Professional Home Designer

Hey, I’m David Baird, owner of Prestige Home Transformations on the Sunshine Coast. Our company has transformed over 1000 homes and won multiple awards for excellence from the Master Painters Association over the past few years. I’ll share some simple tips to make your home look awesome.

To make your dream home, you need to choose the right paint, get the right painter, and pick the right furniture. Let’s explore each of these elements in detail to help you create a beautiful and functional space.

Choosing the Right Paint

When you pick the right paint, you need to think about the color that fits the room’s function, natural light, and your personal style. Here are some examples to help you out:

Relaxing Bedroom

For a relaxing bedroom, choose calming colors like blue or green. These colors can make you feel relaxed and help you get a good night’s sleep. Use flat or low sheen finishes to create a softer look.

Brightening Up a Dark Room

To brighten up a dark room, choose lighter colors like off whites, light creams and light grey. Semi-gloss finishes can reflect more light and make the room feel brighter.

Creating a Bold and Dramatic Space

For a bold and dramatic space, consider dark colors like navy blue, black, or dark gray. Metallic finishes or wallpaper can add texture and visual interest to the space.

Getting the Right Painter

When choosing a painter, you need to consider their experience, reputation, and attention to detail. Here are some things to think about:

Experience and Reputation

Look for a painter who has been in the business for several years and has a good track record. Check their references and portfolio to see if they can handle your project.

Quality of Materials

Make sure the painter uses high-quality paint and tools to ensure that the job is done right. Cheaper materials may save you money now, but they can lead to problems in the future.

Attention to Detail

A good painter should pay attention to detail. They should take the time to prep the surfaces properly, use the right techniques to apply the paint, and clean up after the job is done.

Selecting the Right Furniture

Choose furniture that is functional and beautiful. Consider the size of the room and traffic flow, and pick pieces that fit the scale and proportions of the room. Here are some examples:

Choosing the Right Lounge

For a living room, pick a lounge that fits the size and style of the room. A large sectional is perfect for a spacious living room, while a smaller seat is better for a cozy area. Neutral colors like beige are usually a safe bet.

Choosing the Right Dining Table

For a dining table, consider the size of the room and how many people you want to accommodate. A round table is better for a small dining room, while a rectangular table works well in a larger space. A rustic wooden table creates a warm atmosphere, while a sleek glass table adds a modern touch.

Choosing the Right Lighting

Lighting can set the mood, highlight architectural features, and create a sense of depth and dimension. Consider the function of the room and the style of the space. A statement chandelier adds drama and glamour to a dining room, while recessed lighting creates a clean and modern look in a living room.

To summarise these points to transform your home into a beautiful and functional space, choose the right paint, get the right painter, and select the right furniture or right professional home designer. By considering the room’s function, natural light, and your personal style, you can pick the perfect paint color.
