Ok, so how did you do with your evaluation? Do you have a list of problem areas? Ya, we did too. And it was a l.o.n.g. list. You see, other than painting walls (some several times) we had done almost nothing to make this house our home. There was a lot of things that frustrated me over the years, but I just dealt with them thinking this was just temporary until we found ‘that house’. No more of that!!
The next step was to prioritize the list. As much as we would have loved to have taken care of it all at once. We didn’t have that kind of budget. So, we prioritized. We decided to start with the area that irritated us the most – the entryway.
Step two: Prioritize your list. Decide what area needs the most attention.
Now this can take some bargaining and compromising between you and your spouse. I think that if you are married it is good to make these kind of decisions together. It’s always helpful for us to bounce things off each other. Each person has their own response to a problem, or a room in this case, and it is good to take both into consideration. Now when it comes to design…Ha!
That’s all for today – prioritize your list of problem areas
