At Flight Decorating in Colchester, we’ve been crafting beautiful interiors for clients across the county and beyond. With countless homes and businesses transformed by our experienced hands, we’ve learned a thing or two about the art of decorating. We’d like to share some of the key do’s and don’ts of the process. This is for anyone considering a DIY approach to their decor.

Do Plan Thoroughly

Every successful decorating project begins with careful planning. Consider factors like the colour scheme, the style of furniture you have (or want), and how the room’s natural and artificial light will interact with your choices. It’s also worth considering your lifestyle. For instance, if you have children or pets, your decor should be both beautiful and resilient.

Don’t Rush Your Decisions

Take your time when choosing colours, wallpaper patterns, or furnishings. Trends change and what’s popular today may not be tomorrow. Opt for a style that you love and will be happy with for years to come.

Do Prepare Your Space Properly

It’s critical to adequately prepare your room before you start decorating. This includes tasks like cleaning surfaces, repairing any damage, and applying primer where necessary. These steps may seem tedious but they will significantly enhance the final outcome of your project.

Don’t Ignore the Importance of Quality Materials

The temptation to save on costs by using cheaper materials is often hard to resist. But remember, the quality of your materials can significantly impact the longevity and overall finish of your decorating project. It’s often worth investing a little more for a result that will last.

Do Know Your Limits

There’s no harm in admitting when a project might be beyond your skillset. Certain tasks like electrical work, plastering, or complex painting techniques are best left to professionals. This ensures the job gets done safely and to a high standard.
