You don’t have to hire an expert in interior design to create the home of your dreams. Although it can be beneficial for you, you can do well as a professional, by avoiding some of the 10 most often made mistakes, which you will hear about in two consecutive blog posts.
In the following material, we will place five of the main mistakes, which you can make when coming up with your home furnishing. In the next article, we will say a few things about the rest. Because your home should be a place where you’ll feel comfortable and rejoice your time with your close ones.
You Don’t Use Mirrors
The mirrors are a little bit underestimated in the interior. The usage of reflecting surfaces make the rooms look more spacious. The lack of mirrors and windows leaves a heavy sensation in the room, like there’s no air.
That’s why don’t hesitate to place one or two decorative mirrors on the walls. Be creative! You can find on the market a large variety of sizes and shapes, as well as mirrors with different decorative elements on them.
Placing a mirror will not only make your room look bigger, but it will get brighter due to the light reflection.
You Hang The Wall Photos Too High
The choice of a photo or a picture, you want to hang in your home, is personal. You have the say what you like and what you think is appropriate for the interior. But when you place the frames, you should bear in mind the height of the people which will see the art. The too shortly placed frame can cause backache to your guests and the too highly hanged just won’t be visible.
You Don’t Pay Enough Attention To Think The Design Layout Through
The interior design is not a contest, where you have to cross the finish line first. Especially when we talk about your own home. The effective projection of the interior requires careful planning and organisation. If you rush every few steps, you can accidentally take decisions, which will have bad consequences. That’s why you have to be careful.
You Are Not Close To Nature
One of the best ways to improve the feeling in a room is to place a few living plants in it. It creates a natural sensation, a greater closeness to nature and, with the right choice of plants, you can freshen the air in the space.
When building the home interior project of any room in your home, always pay attention to the five senses, in order to feel maximum comfort, when you enter in.
You Don’t Pay Attention To The Acoustics
One of the hardest interior design decisions is considering the room order according to the acoustics. This is especially valid for rooms which you plan to use for leisure – watching films, listening to music, playing interactive games and so on. The bad choice and order of the furnishing can affect negatively on the whole mood for such activities. So, here’s what you can do:
Don’t use furnishing with firm surfaces too often in such rooms. They absorb the sound waves, and thus they dull the volume. You can “catch” the sound waves with the help of soft surfaces like carpets or upholstery. Wooden floors might look great in your home, but it could be better to replace it with marble and cover it with a few soft rugs so that your feet don’t get cold. This way you will have an even better sound. You will be surprised what an important part of the interior the acoustics can be.
