Every time people think of home interior design, they’ll think about hiring an interior designer. Hiring a professional can be quite expensive, but now it is simple to turn your home into the home of your dreams on budget. However, in order to do that, you need to avoid these five common interior design errors:
1.) Over furnishing a room
It’s important that you assess the size of the room you would like to furnish before purchasing any furniture pieces. People today tend to buy furniture that is too large for the space, which will just make it feel stuffy and crowded. Try to limit the amount of bits in the room.
2.) Hanging art too high on the wall
Do not hang portraits or paintings too high, they need to be suspended at approximately eye level. However, of course, eye level differs for different folks. The guideline is to hang the art 66″-72″ (165-180 cm) from the ground. If the art is large, you can hang it higher, but still around the midpoint of the wall. If there you need to hang a photo above a couch, the base of the frame should be 6″-8″ (15-20 cm) along with the furniture piece.
We often keep things that they don’t really use, and sometimes they simply leave things lying everywhere round the room. Surely you don’t need a room that looks stuffy or cluttered. Try to eliminate unused or unwanted items and save the things that you need to keep in a box or other storage unit. You’ll be amazed at how spacious your area can be.
4.) Quantity versus quality
When decorating your home inside, more stuff doesn’t necessarily mean better. It’s necessary to get just what you absolutely adore, and prevent affordable art. It doesn’t have to be too expensive, but it must be the best that you can afford. High excellent furniture or artwork will last longer and has great resale value if you decide to sell it in the future.
5.) Insufficient lighting
People seldom pay attention to the light in a room and they have a tendency to utilize just one overhead light source. You should use a number of light sources instead. They aren’t only meant for lighting purposes, but they can help create an atmosphere in an area also. You may add some table lamps on your study for reading novels or a chandelier in the living room for a luxurious ambience.
