In this post, I am going to try to list a series of common mistakes in decorating a house. Surely you will have made one or more of these errors (just like me) but I trust that being aware of these tips, you will not do them again!
Common decorative flaws or mistakes :
Abusing Cushions Cushions
are supposed to add comfort to a home. When there are too many on a sofa (for example) it is uncomfortable and there is hardly a place to sit.
The solution is not to remove them all, but you can put a limit of 2-3 per sofa.
Failing to check paint color
Before painting a wall in one color, test it with a sample. The colors of the paint can change noticeably both with drying, as with the time of day and the light that enters the house … To avoid painting an entire house in the wrong color, we can paint a square on the wall and leave it there for minus 24 hours before making the final decision.
Buying cheap furniture It
can be tempting to buy cheap furniture for several obvious reasons, but the truth is that what is saved in the purchase of furniture, is often lost in quality.
Note: This does not mean that you should invest more money in better brands but in better quality.
Buying antiques based on the value they will have in a few years We should avoid buying antique furniture simply because we think they will gain value over time. There is no way to have a guarantee that a piece of furniture will increase in value, therefore, it is more convenient for you to spend your money on furniture that you like.
Disregarding our lifestyle For a family that likes to play with their pets, put their feet up, and dine while watching TV from the sofa, the ideal, in this case, would be a durable, stain-resistant, and comfortable sofa. This example is applicable to any piece of furniture in any room of the house.
Using too many large plants
Plants are important and every room should have at least two of them, but if we plant many or large ones, these will take up space. It is good to take a little time to select plants with the optimal size and color to decorate without disturbing.
Being too monochromatic
Decorating in a single color can be boring. If you want your house to have a neutral appearance it is perfectly compressible, but you should try to follow these rules:
Abusing Wood Tones It is okay to have wood tones in rooms but it is important that we do not abuse them. Try to keep the colors of a room in the same hue but with different colors.
Abusing large photos
If you like to show your family photos it is perfectly reasonable and there is no reason why you should remove them, what you should avoid is putting excessively large photos with family portraits, pregnancies… This could make children guests feel uncomfortable. We can be surrounded by photos of our loved ones but in a stylish and less intrusive way.
Use sheets (or others) to avoid stains on the sofa
If you live in a house where someone is likely to stain something, it is better to have furniture that is resistant to stains, or that its covers can be easily cleaned.
Decorate Too Fast
It is not possible to decorate a room well in one day. Better to take the time to decide what we need, find what we want, and not make decisions in a hurry. The rooms evolve over time so don’t be obsessed with finishing it as soon as possible.
Treat each room separately instead of all as a set
A house is an entire unit made up of different rooms. These rooms (which do not have to resemble each other) should be related to each other. Try to coordinate certain styles and colors (up to a certain point) to unify the house.
Using the wrong shades of light
Light is considered by many to be the most important element in a room. Make sure to put lights around the house until you have the right mix of light.
