Make your space stand out by avoiding these six home décor mistakes
Interior design is an art in itself. It is thrilling to create a stylish space without breaking the bank. Using the right colours and pieces can make a room look much larger than it is. On the other hand, the wrong design and décor can narrow your space and make it look smaller. Below are a few home décor mistakes you could avoid to make your room stand out.
Avoiding these mistakes also creates a high-end luxurious-looking space.
Overdoing and adding too many furniture pieces: If you have one of 4 BHK luxurious flats in Vadodara, you might overfill the spacious rooms with many furniture pieces. However, this can create tension in the room, making the house look very busy, crowded, and distracting to the eye. Less is more. Adding too many furniture pieces detracts from the room’s beauty, making the space cramped. Your living room will look like a store, not a relaxing haven. In addition to too much furniture, place only a few decorations and knick-knacks throughout the house, as it will make the room look cluttered.
Choosing only a single type of lighting in bedrooms: Your bedroom should have the right mix of task and ambient lighting. Aim to combine different light sources like floor lamps, ceiling fixtures, or bedside lamps. Choosing lamps unsuitable for the design environments you are planning could ruin the visual experience of the observer or those who occupy these spaces. Instead, think about the dimensions of the area to be illuminated and choose the type and number of lamps needed to give light to each room.
Not coordinating colours on accessories and fabric: Using the right colour and pattern helps tie a design scheme together. Avoid using colours that do not complement each other. Refrain from using too many colours and patterns in your house. There is a straightforward way to create a balanced colour palette for your space. It’s the 60-30-10 rule! It’s a classic decor rule that helps create a colour palette for a space. It states that 60% of the room should be a dominant colour, 30% should be the secondary colour or texture, and the last 10% should be an accent.
Pillow Pile: It is too much if the pillows hinder sitting on a couch or lying comfortably on a bed. Who doesn’t love plump, cloud-like pillows? But how much is too much? While you can take some liberty with the pillows placed on the bed, it’s better to stick to minimal numbers when it comes to the sofa. The trend of piling pillows on sofas and armchairs has ebbed, leaving our seating clutter-free once again. The throw pillows are free to shine, leaving the sofa looking sleek and leaving room for a few indulgent throw pillows.
Avoid using too “matchy-matchy” furniture: Using separate pieces instead of sets can make your space look curated. The goal is not to make your room look like a showroom. Unfortunately, when we think of a room where everything matches, it generally means insufficient contrast in colour and design. One of the reasons why people end up with this look is because they haven’t planned in detail before shopping. You could fall prey to matching furniture sets if you haven’t done your homework well. And without planning how you might introduce colour and other materials to make your style ‘unique’ rather than ‘matchy’, you risk putting together a room that borders on bleak rather than bodacious.
Not hanging any art: Good art can help brighten a dull wall, give it depth, and balance the entire interior room space. Art can also help add colour to a room and reduce any contrast created by furniture or decor pieces. Not hanging artwork in your living room is not one of the fatal living room design mistakes in the strictest sense. However, you will notice that doing so makes a difference, especially if you own luxury apartments in Gujarat. Artwork can breathe life into your flat’s plain walls. Ensure that the piece goes well with the overall theme and is installed at eye level so the viewers can truly appreciate it. You can also opt for a series of photos to tie the room together.
