3 Interior Design Mistakes You Need To Avoid

Amidst all the experimentation with various paint swatches, choosing furniture, and positioning artwork, there are numerous small decisions which call for  your attention when designing the perfect space. The slightest misjudgement such as hanging a piece of art too high or choosing glossy colours over a matte finish will have surprising effects on your room. When it comes to interior design, only professionals can give you the idea of what to avoid and what to select. In this blog, we bring to you the top 3 things you need to avoid when it comes to interior designing-

Bad lighting

Relying on only overhead lighting is the most significant design flaw you would want to avoid in your home. It is best to layer different kinds of lighting or else your home will look like a hospital with only overhead lights. Pair recessed lights with wall lamps, floor lamps, and pendants for the perfect ambient lighting. Here’s a tip, warm white lightings and dimmers are your friends for life.

Placing furniture against the wall

Previously, the backs of the furniture were unfinished and hence they were put against the walls. However, these days the sofas and beds are finished and designed brilliantly both back and front. Keeping them away from the walls will widen up the room to a greater extent and the interiors will be accentuated.

Too much is bad

Less is more, and the same goes in terms of interior design if you put in too many decor pieces in one place. Your home should look less like a cluttered museum and more like a space that reflects your tastes.
