When it comes to interior decorations, it’s easy to allow your initiative and artistic side to take over. But, there are also things that we are doing wrong. We are not even aware what these “wrong ideas” are.
In interior decoration, it would be best to know what you are doing wrong and to correct it right away. Here are some of the most common mistakes that even some professionals commit.
Buying furniture that couldn’t fit in the room.
When you walk into the furniture shop and see something you like, you could be impulsive. This would, more often than not, land you in a difficult situation. When choosing furniture, plan ahead of time and make sure that you get the measurements right. It would be better to wait it out rather than ending with furniture that couldn’t get past the door.

Among the most bothersome mistakes that most people make is hanging artworks at the correct height. As a general rule, the center of the piece should be eye level. The estimated height is from 58 to 66 inches from the floor. If the piece is on top of a furniture, make sure that it is just about 8 to 10 inches higher than it. While at it, cut out a piece of paper and try to find the best position for the frame so you won’t have to drill a hole all over the place.
Tangling and messy cables and wires
When you have a lot of appliances in the house, you would agree that cables are a necessary evil. But, you should not allow them to mess up with your interior decoration. If some cables are rarely used or unnecessary, remove them and store them properly with the right labels. You can also look for cable covers in the same shade as your wall so you can conceal these wires.
Using rugs that are of the wrong size
These days, rugs are gaining more popularity in interior decoration. These items look really lovely especially when used as a centerpiece for the living room. But, some people commit the mistake of buying a rug that is just too small. As a rule, your rug should touch all the furniture in the room, so be sure to take note of that.
Allowing photographs to be all over the place
We are perfectly aware that people can be a tad too sentimental. This is the primary reason why you store so much pictures in your room. Oftentimes, they are placed above dressers and plenty much all over. This can be problematic in interior design. Your best choice is to hang them as if you are preparing an art gallery. You can change the pictures displayed as much as you want and store the rest in albums.
Ignoring the foyer
As they say, first impressions last. Many people commit the mistake of allowing their entryway to lag behind which is a huge mistake. It is important to highlight this area of the house. One of the most brilliant decorations for this part of your home is a huge mirror. Mirrors double everything which would work well on creating a grand image of your entryway.
