You don’t have to be an interior decorator to beautify your home. Of course, the experts do a good job, but it’s not impossible to change a house into a beautiful home on your own. With several home furniture stores online, there are plenty of options to choose from. Some creativity and color sense are all you need, to do up your home. Here are a few common mistakes that most people make while decorating their home.
Too much furniture:
A room should be furnished to make it look complete, not turn it into a dumping yard of furniture and accessories. Furniture should be both appealing and functional with plenty of space around it for movement and flow. Keep only those pieces that contribute to the overall aesthetics and fulfill a requirement. This will prevent the room from being cramped and give plenty of space, making it look large and airy. At times, even the placement of furniture can make a difference. Move a piece or two around the room to see where it fits better.
Proportions go a long way, with home furnishing. Don’t try to squeeze in something just because it looks nice. Make sure that every piece of furniture you choose complements the other.
Too small Area Rugs:
Area rugs are an excellent way to demarcate little spaces or nooks in a room. Use printed rugs to add a splash of color and tone to the room. But remember to get the right size. If it’s too small, you’ll lose the effect. Remember to keep a 12 to 16 flooring border around the perimeter of the room, smaller rugs would look insignificant. Also, the front legs of the furniture should rest on the rug.
