Step 3: Plan the Needed Specs

Step 3 is sketching your ideas on paper (or digitally) and developing the spec plan.

The spec plan determines what type of decor items and design considerations that will be needed. It will also contain the product specifications for each home decor element.

You will use the spec plan and architectural design to bid the project out to a contractor.

Step 5: Financing Your Project

Step 5 is arranging financing once you selected the contractor and finalized the contract for your project.

Using the equity value in your home is one of the best financing option for interior design. Start with a home equity line of credit or use the 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, removing everything that needs to be replaced, installing electrical 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.
