Don’t be a hoarder. Be a seller.
If you cannot let go of your old furniture, you cannot remodel. If you cannot modify, alter or improve your furniture, you cannot remodel. If you cannot stop being a hoarder then again, you cannot remodel.
You want a modern minimalist look, yet you cannot let go of Victorian sofa that you inherited from your mother which she apparently got from her mother and the list goes on and on, so you keep it and pretend it did not ruin your living room’s supposedly contemporary theme. This will not work.
Be open minded and be attached to your home not on the furnishing. You do not have to throw or give away your furniture. You can sell it. Post it online. You may have to trade it half the amount you bought it for, but heck, home remodeling is expensive. You can also opt to donating your old furniture to your relatives across the state through mobile storage but remember, you need all the pennies you can get.

You get the cash. Your future buyer is happy. Everybody wins. Don’t have an experience with online selling or you cannot do so because of your full time job? No worries. Your handy business adviser aka your smartphone will comprehensively guide you on how to make your first sale.

Now that you have your design plan, the funds and the furnishings, it’s time to set-up. Sure, you may discern the interior blueprint by heart or familiarize yourself with every inch of your living room, but trust us on this, you still need help. There’s nothing more frustrating than a cluttered living room filled with unpacked heavy boxes with fragile items which you cannot even budge.
