    Redecorating and Moving Furniture

    So say you decided you wanted to repurpose an unused guest room, how much input would you expect from your spouse? And how would you come to the decision to make changes, if any? (No money is being spent on this at all just repurposing/removing furniture already owned in a largely unutilized room)

    When DH was alive he gave minimal input. The house decorating was my domain ;)

    DW and I collaborate. She changed one of the unused rooms for her use; she's knows "big picture" what she wants, I can pull together the details.

    If it isn't taking from what he uses, it's all me. We would discuss the plan just in case he has another idea for the space but otherwise he is more than happy to not be asked to help.

    Well, I do make dh help with shifting furniture. And I do run my decorating schemes by him. If he seems unenthusiastic, I probably will let it slide.

    I'm looking at dining room tables - I have something in mind, but I haven't seen it yet. Dh would like me to just pick a table.

    I would certainly run my ideas past him. He and I have very different decorating tastes. If it was going to be a shared room he would want some input. When I did my office it was all me. When we did the bedroom it was mostly me. When we did the family room/tv room it was more him.

    He has a better eye and knack for spaces/ this kind of thing than I do.

    As long as I can see the tv from the couch, he can do what he wants. I don't really care lol

    If it doesn't involve spending money, I'll just do it. I ask dh his opinion afterwards. Usually, though, he really doesn't care. I have a better eye than he does, and he tends to like what I've done anyway.

    if it involves spending our money, I'll run it by him first.

    If it involves painting I would consult dh because he needs to live with the colour too.
