5 Tips on building your own Sneaker Room
Earlier this year I bought my first house, and one of the first things on my decorating agenda was building a Sneaker Room/Office space. Overall it took me a few months to finish the project, and when it was all done it tuned out exactly the way I envisioned!
Since my unveiling a few months ago, I’ve had several people ask me how to start a similar project, so much that I’ve decided to put together a few tips on how to get started on your own dream sneaker room.
- Have A Clear Vision- Create an idea on how you want the finished project to look. What kind of vibe are you going for? For me I wanted it to resemble a sneaker store, I wanted my room to have a clean look so I can be comfortable working in my new space. Before I purchased anything, I created a diagram. You can also gather inspiration from Pinterest, and IG and create mood boards for your overall look and feel.
- Create A Budget- Once you’ve decided on what you want the finished space to look like, now you gotta set a budget for yourself. Trust me, certain items like boxes, pictures, etc. can get pretty expensive once you start, so try to get a gauge for that upfront. Also account for certain items being more than what you may have originally budgeted for. When I started my picture gallery, I didn’t account for how much it would cost for framing, pictures etc. so I definitely went over budget.
- Do Your Research- If you see a particular item you want like a desk, check out multiple sites before you buy. I looked at about 4 different websites to see where I could find a deal or a coupon, so don’t be afraid to be a bargain hunter! If you can save a few coins in one area, you can possibly spend more in another.
- Be Creative- Don’t be afraid to try something new! Play around with various colors, and design concepts. This is your new space, and you want to make sure it’s comfortable. Tap into your inner artist and let loose!
- Take Your Time- Trust me, you will most likely continue to buy sneakers so build your room accordingly. There’s no need to rush the entire process. Have fun and do your research. Figure out the type of shelving you want and don’t forget to account for future sneaker purchases.
