    Currently, what I would like my future house to have secret storage spaces to keep all stuff but when you look around the house, you cant find these secret cupboards... hee hee

    Anyone here thinking of renovating your home with black and white?

    Will those black shinning surface cupboard collect dust? Like you can see them clearly lying on the surface ...
    yes, those shiny black surfaces attract dust more than other surfaces. If you want black and white for a classy feel , you can consider using different kinds of materials that do not attract dust, but give the same feel. That would be better if you don't want the hassle of having to wipe your entire house day after day! It might be easy to think that you can do it regularly just as a sacrifice for a pretty home, but i think in the long run it wouldn't be efficient use of your time. best if you plan well and select something that looks good with minimal maintenance, coz that will be affecting the next 10 yrs of more of your life!

But as we are pretty busy people, we're not sure if that's a good idea, especially if we don't have much design sense.

    for yourselves personally, would you hire one?

    I guess if you hire a designer it saves a lot of time. Even after you have a design in mind, you have to go to many places to look for those specific furniture..

    I want to do it myself so that at least, I can give a personal touch to our own home because I took part in decorating the house.

    I think I won't hire an interior designer. It's added expense and I would want our home to be designed by me and my hubby. Gives it a personal touch.

    yes! it would be a great idea to do some collaboration with an expert interior designer. you can also share your ideas to your designer and i'm sure that designer will add some improvements to make your house design fantastic.

    I did my own design and my contractor advised on its viability, whether it will look nice anot. I am not really artistically inclined, but I did do a lot of research online as well as visit a lot of IDs to talk and learn from them. The final product was something I can proudly call home because it has all the elements that I wanted in my house rather than just a nice looking house that an ID designed. Bonus is that the reno cost me less than 20k in total

    I guess I will. I'm not really an expert in decorating our home so I think I'm going to ask for some help.

    we hired my husband's id friend. she's really helpful and our design became even better. so it's really a good idea to get one.
