Step 5: Financing Your Project

Step 5 is arranging financing once you select the interior designer for your project.

Using the equity value in your home is one of the best financing option for interior design and decor. Start with a home equity line of credit or a bank equity program.

Other options may include cash-out refinancing, personal savings, and/or financing from home improvement contractors.

Step 6: Manage the Project

Step 6 is where the project begins.

It starts with setting up the work area, installing everything that needs to be replaced, rearranging furniture where needed, putting in the final touches, etc.

It also means working with the contractor, managing the project, and getting the remodeling project inspected before releasing any funds.
