Home decor is a personal thing. So there are no real rules when it comes to design and decoration. It’s all about the colors that you pick, the theme that you choose, the pieces of furniture that you purchase, the displays that you opt for, and so many things. In short, it’s your decision and your personal taste.
However, there might be things that you have been doing that are kinda off. But no worries, you don’t have to feel bad because even the most experienced interior designer commits such mistakes. And besides, you can always correct them.
If you are planning on decorating your own place, or even if you did already, here are some home decor mistakes that you should watch out for:
Painting the Walls Without Testing
While it is true that painting the walls can make a huge difference in the overall looks of a room, you can’t be tacky when it comes to your choices of color. You need to test the paint first before you finally apply it. Does it complement the displays that you already have?
If you don’t test, you surely won’t get a good outcome. Plus, you might end up wanting to redo the paint or change everything in the room, which is a waste of time, effort, and money.
Using a Very Small Area Rug
As a rule of thumb, an area rug should be big enough in such a way that the furniture would be sitting on it, or at least the front legs would be stepping on it. Never use a very small area rug.
