Adding some passion and creativity to every drywall project you undertake can give you a result that your client or family will love. There’s a lot that you can do to make the process of hanging drywall easier and effective. You’ll need to get the right drywall supplies to simplify every step in the process. But before you even get to the supplies, you may need to find ideas to implement the project well and come out with an impressive result. Let’s look at some tips to help you collect ideas and organize them in a way that you can put them into practice in your next drywall project.
Look for top drywall galleries online
One popular site with amazing drywall galleries is Houzz. You can get lots of inspiration from this home remodeling website that covers drywall projects done by different homeowners and experts. The site will showcase different
projects that were completed successfully by DIYers and even advice on how to carryout the same project with ease. All you need to do is to visit the Houzz website and search for drywall project galleries.
Organize your ideas
You are likely to find an overwhelming collection of drywall projects on sites like Houzz. To avoid any confusion, take your time to organize all these ideas that you came across. Pick a few photos of projects you really love. Take note of the colors and textures that look like they could blend perfectly in your project. If you are working with a client, you’ll need to figure out how to present all these ideas in a way they can follow through easily.
Create a design board
This is especially important if you have lots of ideas and you want to put them together in order to present and collaborate with a client. Some DIYers have created design boards that give a very vivid idea of how the design will look. From the texture to the color and finishes, traditional design boards should clearly express the preferred design elements.
You can even create an online design board where you gather all your photos that give you inspiration. Sites like Houzz and Pinterest allow you to pin photos you like of similar projects and create a design board. With a design board, everyone who is involved with the drywall project will be on the same page regarding the preferred design.
Develop the ideas
The next important step is to come up with a concept. Once you have all these amazing ideas, you need to get to the finer and more practical details of the project. You will realize that not all ideas you have on your board can be implemented. Your local drywall supplier may not have some of the tools or resources required for the job. Play around with new materials when creating your design online to see how they will look. You may also want to do some research to find specialty materials that will bring your dream to life.
