It’s so easy to fall into these common interior design mistakes. While doing some research for this post I ended up doing a quick check of some of the rooms in my house and decided that some changes needed to be made. Have you fallen victim to some of these common mistakes?
Interior Design Mistakes
- Decorating with things that are the same size. If everything in your room is the same height, you’re going to have a pretty boring space. Instead, choose furniture and accessories that vary in height, shape, and texture.
- Choosing a rug that is too small. If you aren’t sure what size to get, check out our guide on what rug size you need to help get you started!
- Not hanging art or hanging art incorrectly. Picking the wrong size of art or hanging it too high will not help out your room. Instead, follow this guide on how to hang art correctly.
- Too much clutter. Whether it’s having too much furniture put into one room or it’s a shelf overflowing with accessories, less is more. If you don’t have a place in your room where your eye can rest, your room will not be a relaxing place to spend time.
- Ignoring the importance of good lighting. If you only have your overhead light, your room will feel harsh and overbright. Layer your lighting with a variety of lamps to help create an inviting mood.
