You don’t have to be a professional to decorate your home, although avoiding these common mistakes can make you look like one. Learn from the pro’s on what to avoid when making your house into a home. Revampt Goods gives the top 4 most common interior decorating mistakes and how to avoid them!
1. Hanging Art Too High
Take note! Framed artwork and photos hung too high or too low can alter a room’s appearance completely, making the walls appear too tall or too short. Hang the art at eye level to create a balanced room.
2. Not Utilizing Your 5 Senses
Have you ever walked into a room and it feels flat, dull or boring? This could be due to a lack of elements used to create a warm atmosphere. When decorating, use all 5 senses. Plants refresh the sense of smell and add texture, wood or soft textiles create the tactile interest, colors add visual stimulation and fountains or music can set a room’s ambiance!
3. Pushing Furniture Against The Wall
Balance is the word of the day when it comes to furniture arrangement. Pushing furniture against walls and into corners may not necessarily lead to a balanced room. In general, you will want to divide the room in half, down the middle. This imaginary line is the room’s axis. Position major furniture pieces on the axis, such as sofa’s, beds, tables, etc… Center the rest of the furniture within the walls or space provided.
4. Insufficient Lighting
Lighting can make or break a room. Lighting is simply the easiest way to add ambiance or to change the appearance of a room. A darkened room can seem small or dirty, a brightly lit space can actually appear larger and cleaner! Don’t be afraid to switch out lighting fixtures to add more light, as well as add lamps and sconces!
