Homeowners: Stop Making These Mistakes In Your Interiors!*
Making your interior both functional for the way you live and beautiful is important if you’re going to be happy in your home. However, with the best intentions, homeowners often end up making the same mistakes with their interiors. Here, we’re going to talk about the mistakes you must stop making with your interior if you’re going to make the most of your space. Read on to find out more!
Filling Your Interior With Small Items To Save Space
Many people think that they can save space in their interiors by filling it with small items. However, small items, even in small places, can make the space look cluttered and claustrophobic. It can look haphazard, and just not have the effect you want it to have when you’re spending time in there.
It’s absolutely fine to choose a large accessory or piece of furniture to go in a small room, but you must make sure you love it, and that it’s going to look good. Filling the space up is fine as long as you do it right. Don’t try too hard to save space or you might find that the opposite happens.
Not Using Enough Texture
Using texture in your home is really important if you want it to look interesting and multi dimensional. People who don’t use texture in their home find that it’s lacklustre, unwelcoming, and plain boring. You can find lots of great ways to include texture in your home, including cushions, rugs, throws, plants, and more. Adding plenty of different textured items will look great and bring your home to life.
Of course, you can go too far with this. You don’t want to end up with allergies because everything you’ve chosen is attracting dust and holding it in the material fibres. Try to get the balance just right.
Matching Your Furniture
Matching furniture used to be a good idea – in the 80s and 90s. If you’re still doing this, you’re living in the past. Mixing furniture can look great and can bring even more interest and beauty to a space if you do it right. Don’t do it the lazy way by picking matching items. Choose a nice chesterfield sofa, and then go for a plush single chair in a contrasting color, if you dare. Get creative!
Placing Your Artwork/Mirrors Too High
You don’t want to place your artwork or mirrors too high. This commonly happens with artwork. Mark out the place you want to put it before making holes in your wall blindly and make sure it looks good.
Sticking To One Style
Sticking to one style will mean that your home quickly looks outdated. For a more timeless appearance, mix a variety of styles, both old and new. The benefit of this is that nobody else will have a home like you!
Following trends is another bad idea for the same reason as above. If you want to decorate your home again in a few months, then go ahead and follow trends. Instead, go with your gut and include styles you really like.
