Redecorating your house used to mean you had to do a lot of legwork, going from store to store until you find the one piece you’re looking for. And then you had to start that entire process over again for each accent or home accessory. It used to take weeks or even months to complete, but with modern technology, you can now do it all online in the fraction of the time, from the comfort of your own home.

Color wheel for mood enhancementColor Scheme – One of the first steps to redecorating your home is to pick the right color scheme. With so many colors and variations to choose from, this can easily become an overwhelming task. You could spend hours looking at paint samples, trying to create your own color scheme. But it’s even easier to create your color scheme online. Adobe Kuler has an online tool that helps you create your ideal palette. Pick a color you want to use in your home, and look at all the options for complementary and compound colors, or you can customize your own. There’s even an option to explore palettes created by other people, giving you even more inspiration for your own redecorating.

Bedding – Now that you know what colors you will use throughout your home and specifically your bedroom, it’s time for the fun part: bedding! You can find bedding online to match any theme or color scheme you choose. You can find anything from NFL bedding, no matter who his team is, for your son to sophisticated bedspreads for the guest room.

You can now custom order any blinds or window shades. Just type in the measurements you need and your order will be waiting for you on your doorstep in a few days. You can customize the fit, materials, type of cord or cordless, and the color, all from your couch.

Room Planner – It’s one thing to buy everything you need for your redecoration project, but it’s another thing to try to figure out how everything will fit and work together. Instead of moving pieces around, scuffing up your floor and wearing yourself out, plan your rooms virtually. This tool lets you recreate and style your home with ease. You can choose wall color, floor materials, window placement, and so on. This allows you to create a true representation of your home, allowing you better control in redecorating.

Once you’ve completed all your online shopping and planning, then you can put on the final touches with ease, creating a one-of-a-kind home that fits wholly represents you.
