AN interior designer has shared the tools he used in his decorating process.
He said he couldn’t keep the tips that had proven so useful in his five-step work schedule.
Tommy (@tommyhuerter) shared the advice with over 100,000 TikTok followers.
He explained that those who want a beautiful home but don’t know where to start simply need to follow five steps.
“There is no gatekeeping here… the first step is to create a mood board or an inspiration board,” he said.
He explained that finding pieces and styles you love is crucial to the process and can be done on Instagram and Pinterest.
Next, your room was measured and a floor plan was created.
“By creating a floor plan, you can see exactly what pieces you need, where they will be placed in your space, and what size they need to be too,” he explained.
The expert recommended using free online resources like Sketch Up to create your own floor plan.
After the first two steps are done, comes the fun part – shopping.
“Put these things together…focus on the big things, things like your sofa, your rugs, your chairs, these will take up your budget,” he advised.
Next came the walls: “You have to think about what art you want to put on your walls,” he said.
Finally, there’s the addition of accessories: “That’s what makes a house feel like a home, and that’s easy to do once you’ve chosen everything else.”
People took to the comments to share their struggles with the interior design process.
Many got stuck in the early stages: “The floor plan step is my problem!” said one commenter.
Others thanked him for the advice: “This was so useful, thank you so much, I love your content,” said another.
