Dream Homes by Bonito Designs

Pain Point 

Designing the interiors of your dream home can be exciting, but there are a lot of factors to consider when doing so. Knowing what to do and what not to do can thus be a challenge.  


Create a checklist and do all your research beforehand. You don’t have to rush this process, as it often takes time to understand what you want your dream home to have, and how you want it to look. Discuss everything from your budget, the quality of materials, your tastes and preferences, and your lifestyle, as each of these elements will play a crucial role in your home’s design.  

The following sections discuss each of these considerations in greater detail. They serve as a guide on how you can approach the process of designing the interiors of your dream home. 

Figuring Out What You Want and What You Don’t  

Figuring Out What You Want and What You Don’t  

Over the years of living in your current home, you’d have collected several reference images, or seen several houses that may have inspired you. While some of these would’ve given you ideas of elements you’d like to incorporate in your interiors, others would’ve had the opposite effect.  

The first step to making your dream home a reality is to figure out what you want and what you don’t. To help you out, here’s a list of things to consider –  

  • Think of what you value in your home.  
  • What new features do you want your dream home’s interiors to have?  
  • Which of your needs does your current home not meet?  
  • What do you like and dislike about your current home?  
  • What future needs can you anticipate based on your lifestyle? 
  • What elements or qualities must your home not compromise on, and what are you okay with compromising on?  

Answering these questions will give you a rough blueprint of what you want your home to have and not have. These details, along with any existing references can make for a good base to show your interior designer and allow them to envision your dream home for themselves.

Decide on a Budget Based on The Quality You Want  

Decide on a Budget Based on The Quality You Want  

Once you’ve decided on all the elements you want your dream home’s interiors to have, you must decide on a budget for the entire project. This is where you’ll have to keep in mind that how much you’re willing to spend will reflect directly on the quality of materials used across your home’s interiors.  

If you don’t want to spend a lot in one go, carry forward the project step-by-step. This approach is a lot more effective than pouring a limited budget into your home’s interiors in one go, as it will lead to corners being cut.  

Take Your Lifestyle into Account  

Your current lifestyle will play a key role in how you create your home’s interior design. Consider your present and future lifestyle when designing interiors, complementing not just the house but your evolving needs.

For example, if you’re someone who tends to have a lot of company, you might want to ditch a four-seater dining table for a six or an eight-seater. The same goes for your sofa set design in your living room as well, as you’ll have to ensure that your guests have ample place to comfortably lounge around in your living space.  

If you have elderly members in your home, you’ll also have to take into account elements such as grab rails in spaces like bathrooms to ensure they can safely move around the house. Their bedrooms too, will have to be made accessible to ensure they can comfortably go about their daily activities.  

Every room, including the kitchen and bedrooms, must align with your lifestyle for a harmonious home experience.

Evaluate the Pros and Cons of Your Current Home  

Evaluate the Pros and Cons of Your Current Home  

Designing your dream home’s interiors? Enjoy the process—no need to start from scratch, make it uniquely yours. Mine your current home for ideas—identify its shortcomings and envision improvements for your future dream home.

For example, if your kitchen cabinets don’t have any integrated appliances like a microwave, refrigerator, or oven, you can keep this in mind when designing the layout for your new home. Craft room checklists based on likes and dislikes, incorporating preferred elements for a personalized touch in your current home. Create checklists to capture details for your dream home’s interior, ensuring all desired elements are considered.

Take Your Taste and Personality into Account  

Balance practicality with personal tastes when designing your home for a harmonious living space that suits you. Thoughtfully infuse your personality and tastes into your home design for a true reflection of yourself.

Opt for furniture with clean lines and geometric shapes for a minimalist interior design preference.  You can also experiment with the idea of integrated furniture if you prefer your floors to be clutter-free.  

On the other hand, if you’re more on the maximalist end of the spectrum and want your home to be an amalgamation of statement pieces that incorporate different cultural influences, you’ll have to take these requirements into account.  

Every element, from the furniture, the layout of each room, the lighting, fittings, and furnishings will play a crucial role when designing the interiors of your dream home. Additionally, you’ll also have to pay close attention to the colour palette you intend to use across your home. Whether you prefer earthy tones or warmer colours, you have plenty of options to choose from.
