1. Research & Visualize

Visualize how you want your new room to look. If it’s a kitchen, where will the appliances go? If it’s a living room, will there be a newly placed picture window? Find inspiration in magazines or online using or Hunter Douglas product photography at


2. Budget

Decide how much you are willing to spend on your remodel. Figuring out rough estimates can help you get an idea of how much you will have to spend. If you are borrowing, you must find out how much the bank will loan. Major upgrades, such as a bathroom remodel or a family-room addition, can run about $100 to $200 per square foot. Ask around to contractors for general quotes to get an even better idea on what your costs will be.


3. Hire

Hire a Contractor that can devise a plan for your remodel based on your design that is within your budget. Make sure this is someone you trust. You can rely on him/her to hire subcontractors for the labor that will be required. It is a good idea, but not necessary, to hire an architect as well. If it is within your budget, an architect can translate your vision and create a realistic floor plan.


4. Implement

When implementing your plan, stay a part of the development from start to finish. Even when hiring others to perform the labor, pay attention to detail. Make sure things are not only going according to plan, but that you are happy with it. In addition, be kind and respectful to your remodelers and they will do the same. Especially if you are living in your home throughout the process, remember that everyone who enters is your guest. You’re all in it together!


5. Decorate

When it comes time to decorate your new space, it is one option to hire an interior designer to come up with an exciting way to make the room beautiful. However, there are ways to design your room on your own. When decorating, be sure to:
• Consider the function of the room when piecing it together
• Match furniture to the overall scale of the space
• Create a theme and vibe for the feeling of the room
• Design a creative color pallet and follow it through out
• Make your room unique with interesting pieces
• To stick to your budget, try fun DIY projects
• Utilize light to create aesthetic warmth and color
• Don’t forget the window coverings!

  1. +Nebraska Furniture Mart Today you lose a customer of 30 years who’s spent over $100,000 in that time and was getting to furnish an new office and house (not to mention our family, company, and probably friends and relatives).

    The reason why is quite simple…

    It wasn’t that you failed to set proper expectations and left us waiting indefinitely for for an order we desperately needed without bothering to contact us once.

    Nor is it due to the fact within the same 8 hours you communicated two entirely different and conflicting pieces of vital information.

    All of that is forgivable from a company that we have such history with. BUT, what is not forgivable is someone you have entrusted with the responsibility of a customer service manager refusing to apologize, acknowledge any break down in communication, show the slightest form of empathy or respect at any time, refuse to address or explain how or why we were told completely conflicting information, or express any form of appreciation for our business, let alone try to make things right.

    AND TO TOP THINGS OFF, he had the audacity to reinstitute the restocking fee that the other representative had waved (after completing contradicting what former had said) and implying that we were lying about what we’d been told.

    #nebraskafurnituremart please take your motto “We Are Serious About Service” down from the top of your website because it is the farthest thing from the truth. We’ve been understanding, courteous, patient, and treated your employees with the utmost respect and in return have been accused of lying, misinformed, and treated like trash.

  2. Wow! Awesome designs, I love all of them. It’s very necessary to first plan your budget, then according to that hire your interior designer. Don’t forget to stay in your budget, if you don’t, then may be it would cost you so much.
