Most common mistakes when decorating a room

Paint colours that clash

If there is one thing you should avoid, it is to pay twice for a paint job in your house. The best way to do this is to test how the colour would look in the room by painting a small patch instead of just choosing hues off the catalogue.

Furniture that look out of place

Decorating a room requires a lot of thought including making sure that there is harmony and balance between pieces of furniture, the size of the room and decor themes. Sure, that sofa looks very comfortable and nice in the showroom. However, when it is delivered, you might encounter problems with it such as clashing with the other pieces that you have or at worst not fitting in the room.

Buy cheap, buy twice

Skimping on furniture and decor is normal during these hard times. At the same time, it is also true that you get what you pay for. Hence, if you are keen on saving, get a reasonable quality of furniture and accessories that will not just break anytime soon.

DIY fails

It is also understandable that you will try to cut corners and save by taking on DIY projects. However, if you are not really good at this, do not attempt to do it, especially complicated ones. You will end up spending more money to fix your mistakes and in the process, waste valuable time.

Unsuitable interior plants

Do not forget to research properly the types of plants that you will use as decorations inside your home. One thing that you want to avoid is buy expensive flora that will look grotesquely out of place in your home.

Art decor

On the same note, you might want to put a piece of art that you really like or that you find to be glamorous. It has to have a special meaning for you and must be in harmony with the decoration and theme of your room.

Upgrading or downsizing

You might also be thinking of buying furniture and decor just because they look pleasing to you and appear elegant. But, the truth of the matter is, these pieces hardly serve you any purpose. That huge table in your dining salon will not be used often for how many times do you actually hold sit down dinners for 12 people? Hence, think carefully when buying furniture and accessories. Go for things that are functional and add elegance to your rooms and home.

Decor that is too delicate

If you can't touch, sit or use your accessories and even furniture for fear that you will mess it up, then this is not the one that you will need. And, if you have to spend loads of time cleaning it, then it is surely not a wise buy.
