Common Decoration Mistakes


The decoration of your home is not an easy task. You have to take care of so many things at once. So it is common to do some mistakes. Unlike other things decoration mistakes are hard to hide, so you have to be careful about the interior decoration process. The decoration process can be fun, giving your house a new look is always exciting. But decoration can be a disaster if it is not planned properly. Home decoration is all about reflecting your passion and style. In the process we can do too much and ruin it. So here are some common decoration mistakes you should avoid:

Trying to Copy

When you see a stunning interior on a magazine, the first thing goes to your mind is my home should look like this one. This is one common mistake many of us make, trying to give your house just the look you found on a magazine cover. Never try this kind of copying, it has often proved to be a big mistake. It is true that great interior photo can work as an inspiration, but trying to copy it exactly is a huge blunder. An interior of a magazine cover was created to take the photo; it is not wise to recreate it.

Not Having a Focal Point

Your interior decoration should be surrounded by a focal point. Each of your house should have a focal point and other decoration should be based on that. You can use many things as a focal point like a window, a big mirror or even a fireplace. Sometimes focal points are created naturally, if not you have to create one. It is mandatory for your room to have a focal point. Not having a focal point can ruin the interior decoration for you.

Wrong Color Selection

The color selection is the most important part of your interior decoration task. You have to choose the color which suits the decoration. The paint on the wall will decide how the interior decoration is working. Some interior designers use wallpaper instead of paint, in that case the color of the wallpapers are very important. A dark color can make your room feel empty and it can make it appear a lot smaller. Whereas a bright color can give a new life to your room. Wrong selection of color can ruin everything for you. So be careful about the color selection.

Too Many Furniture

Emptiness is the best form of interior decoration. When you can leave plenty of open space with your interior decoration, it means it is a great decoration. Too many furniture’s do not make a great interior, but it ruins it. Lining up furniture from floor to wall will consume all the free space of your room. It will not look good at all. So consider your interior decoration with fewer furniture to make it look great. Allow the room to have some space, that is all interior decoration is about.
