Start by selecting the room that feels more like your style. The different rooms available are offered for the major rooms of the home, such as kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Next play around with the item you are most interested in. For example if you are thinking of designing your kitchen, select the cabinet style first and then play around with different finishes you like. If you are most interested in granite counter tops, start there. Staring with the item you are most excited about helps you build around the aspects you are drawn to.
Now play around with paint color. Since paint color can change the way a room looks instantly, it is important to figure out the sort of color palettes that look good with the elements you are most excited about. Paint color also encompasses a large portion of a room. It also has the ability to change the way other features and finishes look. If you are unsure where to start, ask yourself these questions “Do you like light and bright or warm and cozy?”. Light and bright colors are whites, light blues and creams and even grays. Warm and cozy can be achieved by beiges, browns, reds, greens and darker grays. Rich color palettes can be achieved by using darker blues, reds, greens and other vibrant, yet darker color choices such as wine.
The virtual room designer also allows you to play around with different floor and wall treatments. When using this tool make sure you view all of the options available. Tweak back splash and counter tops by selecting different patterns and materials. A variety of flooring selections are also available and the finishes can be changed as well. Have fun and create different styles. Save your work so you can go back and look at design styles later!
