I know everyone’s first tendency is to run to the nearest design center or fabric store

I know everyone’s first tendency is to run to the nearest design center or fabric store…resist the urge!
Start with a plan. You will easily find yourself side-tracked if you don’t.
First, determine the scope of your project. Decide what it is you want to accomplish.
• Are you doing the entire room?
• Replacing only the upholstery pieces?
• Will it involve painting & re-carpeting?
Once you decide on the extent of your project, there are more question to ask before you head out the door to the store. What are the special considerations you need to address?
• Is it a heavy traffic area?
• Does it need to be child and pet friendly?
• Do you need to create a focal point?
• Do you need to minimize the glare on the big-screen TV?
• Do you have a date it must be finished by?
These questions should trigger others specific to your individual project. Write them all down. Take time to carefully answer.
When you are done, you will have a list of what you are going to do and the issues you need to consider.
It may sound a bit overwhelming, but when you write everything down, it gives you a map to follow.
