Most Common Décor Mistakes Made by Homeowners

There are some design mistakes that continue to be made by homeowners everywhere. This is because most of the time people are not even aware that they are making them. This means that they either ending up spending more money than they need to or they create a look that is just a little off. If you are looking to style your home and want to know how to avoid common pitfalls, you are in good company. Here is what you need to be aware of:


Going Overboard with Walls

There are some people who spend an incredible amount of money wallpapering their entire house. While it is true that it certainly adds character and colour to your home, it is an investment that you don’t need to make. This does not mean that you have to settle for dully coloured walls, however. To find a good balance between the two, try for an accent wall. Instead of sticking with wallpaper or paint, try something different. To get both an exquisite look and texture, try porcelain tiling on your wall. There are some lovely options such as mock brick that can really bring an entire room alive. As a bonus, this type of material is incredibly versatile and durable. So it will be quite the asset in your home. 

Not Styling for the Climate

If you are feeling overheated in a room or find a particular space to be freezing, your furnishing tactics may be to blame. In addition to the colours and fabrics, the amount of furniture and fixtures also plays a huge role in the temperature of the room. If you live in warmer climes, it is best to minimize the amount of items in a room. This helps the space to feel cooler and more airy. It is quite alright if the room looks a little sparse as long as you comfortable in it. If it tends to get cold, however, you have greater freedom to choose and place more items in the room. Still, it is best not to go overboard unless you can strike that balance where the room looks cosy rather than overstuffed. 

Choosing Dark Furniture for Small Spaces

It is a well-known fact that if you have a small room, it is best to paint it a lighter colour. This gives the illusion of more space. Using dark colours will just make the room appear to be smaller than it actually is. What many people don’t know or realize, however, is that the colour of your furniture matters as well. If your furniture is done up in overly dark tones, it may be contributing to the fact that the space seems quite small. This is why it is best to use light fabrics and woods when decorating the room. It also adds some much-needed light to pokier places. Anything that seems like it would reflect light will suffice.

These are some decorating tips that you should always keep in mind. Try them out and you will be astounded by the difference that it makes to your home.
