Knowing how to decorate your home involves paying careful attention to many different details. You need to know which kinds of accents to use, what color schemes work best, and which types of furniture to get. Getting the right look for your home also means being familiar with what you shouldn’t do. Keep the following decorating dont’s in mind when you’re sprucing up your home.
Getting low-quality furniture
The quality of the furniture you choose for your home can have a big impact on how certain areas or rooms look. Choosing high-quality furniture instead of going with low-quality pieces, whether you’re getting a new wood dining room set or new living room furniture, will improve not only your home’s appearance, but also your bank account in the long haul.
Using the same pattern
You don’t have to use one pattern to decorate a room or area of your home. Doing so can make rooms look dull or unappealing, depending on the pattern you choose. Mixing different patterns in a room will give it a more visually striking or pleasing appearance.
Forgetting to test paint colors
Certain paint colors might seem perfect for your home, but you won’t know for sure until you start painting. To avoid unpleasant surprises, make sure you test paint colors on a small, inconspicuous part of your wall first.
Having too much art or knick-knacks
Having a few pieces of artwork on your walls or knick-knacks on shelves can give more charm and personality. However, avoid overdoing artwork or knick-knacks, since this can make rooms look cluttered.
Buying the Wrong Size Furniture
Filling a small area with furniture that’s too large results in a crowded room, while using smaller pieces of furniture in a large room can make your home seem less cozy and inviting overall. Choose the right size furniture for each area of your home depending on factors such as a room’s layout and size. Take measurements to ensure that you get the correct size.
Choosing Style over Comfort
Stylish pieces of furniture can give your home an upscale or chic look, but make sure you’re not sacrificing comfort. Look for chairs, bedroom sets, and other furniture that combines style and comfort.
