02 Oct Develop a Long Range Room Plan
We have been hearing many statistics on how America is cutting back in the “down economy”. A recent industry report quoted a Forbes’ survey stating that people were willing to cut back 64 to 82% of their expenses on going out to eat, entertainment outside the home, wardrobes, and vacations. According to the Forbes’ survey only 25% of Americans are willing to cut back on their cable expenses. The conclusion is that we are spending more time at home!
Safety, security and comfort are our primary needs in our homes. Creating this personal haven is a priority that may be overwhelming to conquer in our busy lives. A financial advisor recently told me that her advice right now is “buy quality and buy cautiously”. I will give you the same advice when furnishing your home. The “room of your dreams” can happen one layer at a time. You may have one immediate need to address, fill this need confidently by developing a long range plan first.
The long range plan should include a scaled floor plan as well as color and textile direction. Long range planning is a service Kathy Corbet Interiors provides.
