    Becoming a home decorator is not as easy as, say, becoming a surgeon. The first step in the process of starting your own business is deciding what kinds of design services you will offer and how much time you can spend on each job. If you are new to the area, it would be wise to take some classes at a community college or nearby university. Most importantly, don't forget to register yourself with your local Chamber of Commerce so you can legally do business! Good luck in your career path!

    Be prepared to learn a lot. Home decoration is essentially putting objects from your home together in ways that make your space the way you want it to be, not necessarily a service. You'll need to familiarize yourself with phrases used in home decoration and design, as well as skills like art direction, graphic design, fashion design, interior design and creative project management. Basically people who are looking for someone who can help them decorate their space will specify what they're looking for in a company's portfolio as opposed to just saying "home decorator".

    The first thing you should do is think of the practical skills you have and what weaknesses need to be addressed. For example, if you're really good at math but feel lacking when it comes to drafting and building, then focus on going back to school or a trade for carpentry skills. If you're strong at design but don't have a green thumb, find a way that's comfortable for you to spend some time gardening or landscaping. Get creative - there are always ways around these kind of obstacles!

    The decorator must have a strong sense of style. This is evident in the manner in which they present their work. They might start by understanding the specific personalities and lifestyles of those who live within that home, and incorporating elements which speak to this into what he or she does. If possible, they will choose to patronize local artists and craftspeople over manufacturers for their furnishings since it's more difficult than ever to distinguish quality craftsmanship from factory churn-outs these days
    Ultimately, when working with clients who decide to remodel an old house, it's important not to alter its historic character too much even if there are flaws that need correcting.

    So, the first step to become a home decorator is to have some basic knowledge about different styles of design. That will teach you how and when to use what style in designing a space. Next you need design experience - that's where your expertise comes into play. You can get relevant skills by redecorating rooms in your house or starting from scratch like I did with my office loft and my basement reno projects. Build up your portfolio too- is important for clients to see what you have done before so that they know that they are investing their business on someone reliable and competent. If not for themselves than also for their customers who are going to receiving the end product bearing your name on it.

    First, you need to develop a thorough understanding of the guiding principals such as color theory, materials and texture. Then you'll be in a better position to judge what is or isn't going to work for you. Secondly, since it is such an important area of social life, I would recommend that if at all possible, you go through some formal training courses on design principles. But if not possible due to time constraints or other commitments - make sure that if your space will give off limited light from any window - use more luminous natural materials such as amaranthine-colored linen with patches of lighter colors like white cotton fabric for example. When choosing furniture do pay attention not just to aesthetics but also function.
