No matter how beautiful the house is constructed, if you don’t concentrate on the interior decoration, then everything falls apart. Take a look at some of the common mistakes that people do when designing home interiors.
Understanding scale and size.
It is necessary to understand the scale and size. Scale and size do not mean space alone. Noted designer, Linda Floyd explains scale as a mix of heights, textures and looks that come together. It is better to take the suggestion of an interior designer while designing the interiors.
Never indulge in impulse buys and have a clear idea of what is required. Make sure you have all the measurements with you before purchasing furniture.
We all tend to collect and store things in order to use it someday. However, it is necessary to collect things that goes well with your home décor and not the other way around. You can create a dedicated space to display rare stuff.
It is important to know what kind of art blends in with your design. It is not mandatory to exhibit things just because you have a great piece of art. If it’s not fitting in then it’s better to remain in the dark.
Make this small change.
Consider buying furniture first, rather than starting of with painting the walls. A small change can really do wonders and will be useful while making decisions. Also make sure you keep the size of the rooms and then purchase products.
Spice it up.
If you really want to add character, then buy things slowly, take your time and see what can be done to make it look unique and special. You can add rare furniture, classy curtains, street finds and décor to make it interesting.
Repurpose the antiques.
We all have stuff that goes back a long way and it stays for sentimental value. However, it need be stored just for the sake of it. You can instead include them in your décor which definitely adds value to the overall look.
