Common home decor mistakes are sometimes unavoidable, especially if you don’t pay too much attention to what you are doing. If you do not avoid these common mistakes, it will affect the your home decor outcome . It’s a lot of work because sometimes you have to go back to zero. It’s wasting your time, your effort as well as the money you used.
In order to avoid these mistakes, you need to make a well-made plan before you start your work. Here are some tips that you should follow to avoid common mistakes when you are decorating your home:
Painting the Walls First Without Any Considerations
The most common home decor mistake is painting the walls first. According to experts and interior designers, painting your walls without any considerations is a big no-no.
You should consider color-scheming first. These are some things you need to consider;
- You should choose the best color palette for your home.
- The color palette you choose should also blend well with your chosen items.
- If possible, the color palette should be neutral so you can choose different accents that will still blend well, no matter how bold the colors are.
- The color palette is of your likings.
Hanging the Chandelier Too High
Why should you not hang your chandelier too high? Since your chandelier is too high and near your ceiling, you are limiting the light that it emits. Always remember that you use a chandelier not merely for decorations but for the light and you are lighting up your room, not your ceiling.
Also, you cannot see your chandelier if it’s too high unless you look up (which is an extra effort, mind you). Visualize this, you enter a house with a ceiling that is too high, will you be able to see it? Of course, you can’t. It defeats the purpose.
Designing on Your Own
Embarking on interior designing while unsure of what to do is also a big no-no. Yes, the process will help you grow but remember that you are going to invest your effort, time as well as money just to beautify your home, are you willing to compromise these?
It’s not the best time to joke around and not taking things seriously. But having fun is important as well but not to the extent of course. If you don’t want to hire a personal interior designer, then make sure that you know what you are doing. Having a background in interior design is essential to produce a better result.
To act like a pro, you should be defined and precise with your styling. What style or theme is your target? Is it a minimalist and aesthetically pleasing to the eye type of design or is it a retro and vintage vibe design? Or maybe you want a more lenient, relaxed, simple, and more laid-back design? A modern or traditional design?
Be précised with your styling, but do not limit yourself. Explore first maybe on the internet until you are sure enough of the design you are looking for.
Following What’s Trending
Following what’s trending does not possess individuality and uniqueness. Everyone has a different taste and style. Do not choose a home decor just because it’s trending. It’s yourself and your eyes that you should please, not the other people.
As much as possible, avoid these. Although they may offer great ideas, it’s important to find your own sense of style, not being dependent on others. Explore and be creative.
Having a Monotonous Design
One style and all-white color has a calming and soothing effect but you have to admit that this type of design is monotonous and boring. Try mix-matching your home decors especially your furniture or your organizers. You want diversity in your home, not some all-white and bland design. Show your characteristics and features using your very own chosen designs.
Hanging Items Too High
Not only is your chandelier that you shouldn’t hang too high.
If you are an art collector and you like paintings and frames, never hang them on your wall too high. It should be eye-level. Although this may vary from person to person, go for what you think is the best. Don’t hang it too high but don’t hang it too low either.
If you’re an aspiring interior designer, you should know these types of things. Knowing what to avoid will help you to become a good interior designer.
