5 Decorating Mistakes that Make Your Home Look Terrible
Sometimes the smallest decorating mistakes can affect the entire look and feel of the space. Stop making these 5 common decorating mistakes and keep your home looking fresh and tidy!
Your area rug is the wrong size. A rug that’s too small can actually make your space appear smaller, unproportioned, and messy.
You have the wrong wall color. If your wall is not the right color – for example, too much of a brown or yellow undertone – your furniture can appear dated and less welcoming.
You have exposed electrical cords everywhere. Not only is it dangerous to have exposed electrical cords in your home, it also looks cluttered and can ruin the design for any room.
You displayed too many knick knacks. Don’t bombard your surfaces with knickknacks and 20 picture frames, it’s not a collage. Keep your accessories to a minimum so you can truly appreciate what you have displayed. Can’t decide what you want to show? Then schedule a rotation, every season or every month, change up your photos and knickknacks.
You don’t fluff your sofa pillows and you don’t make your bed. Even if everything around your sofa or bed is clean and organized, flat toss pillows and an unmade bed can make the entire space look like it’s falling apart. It only takes a couple of minutes to fluff your pillows and make your bed – it’s the quickest solution to making your home look put together.
