If you want a change but don’t know exactly what you want, it’s time to go window shopping.

Begin by trying to figure out what it is that you don’t like in your current home. Is it the floor plan, an outdated kitchen, a desire for more space?

Then start looking for ideas that will help you make the kind of change you desire.

Visit new model homes in your area, go to home improvement stores and look at new items and displays, visit furniture and decorating stores for ideas.

Spend some time looking at remodeling books and magazines and other home magazines for ideas. If possible, keep copies of the things you see that you like.

Finally, sit down with all the possibilities and start making choices, setting priorities, and creating a design and a plan.
