Decoration mistakes you should avoid

Let's face it, it's easy to make mistakes when it comes to organizing your living space. On the contrary, we are more likely to make a mistake straight away than to be entirely delighted with the appearance of our home following renovations, for example. Vogue magazine decided to enlist the help of leading interior designers and ask them what are the most common decorating blunders that should be avoided at all costs.

Poor lighting

If you have a huge room or a smaller place with darker walls, you should pay special attention to lighting. Lighting is often overlooked, despite the fact that it has a significant impact on space. Under artificial light, the hue of the walls changes. It identifies one solution for a dimly lit room. The problem can be quickly solved by installing small and decent wall lamps. Of course, if you don't have any lights, avoid frosted lamps with tinted glass, and if you have, pick a brighter LED module for your ceiling lights. If you install the lights yourself, you'll be working on three levels: ceiling lights to highlight objects like tables, floor lamps to provide ambient lighting, and table lamps to provide targeted illumination for work areas.

You are unsure about the space's actual measurements.

The salesman's first question when you went to buy furniture was, "And what are the measurements of the space? When the selected piece of furniture comes at your home, you realize it is either too big or too little for the area, and you're perplexed as to how to recall the figures from the floor plan and come up with a reasonable estimate. In the worst-case scenario, it won't even be able to go through your front door. How can you prevent making this error? Double-check your measurements. Then take another measurement.

Don’t test enough furniture before buying

Purchasing furniture such as beds, sets, and/or chairs may be highly dangerous. What use is the most beautiful couch in the world if you can't sit on it for more than half an hour? Of course, you have the right to consider the aesthetics of the room where you will be staying, but it should not take precedence. These are pricey items that you want to be comfortable in. Alexa Hampton advises that you always try before you buy. Come to the furniture store at different times of the day since the impression you get will alter depending on whether you are totally rested or have had a hard day at work.
