You could have the priciest furniture but there are some mistakes you could make that would make your interior design scheme fail to work. What are the most common mistakes and how do you avoid them?
While some element of matching is essential, it is easy to take this overboard. Rather than just match furniture and fabrics simply based on their colors, the right thing to do is to relate the two. Other than color, what else do they have in common such as history or style? When the matching is based on relation rather than color, you end up with a collected and sophisticated look.
You’ve probably been to one of those living rooms that are so crowded with furniture that it is almost impossible to move around. Rather than fill all the space with all manner of furniture, it is more gracious to buy a handful of good quality pieces of furniture and to leave enough space between the pieces to make it easy for people in the room to move around with ease.
You should also create some space between the furniture and the walls. Apart from looking better than a room whose furniture is pushed to the walls, you’ll also find that it becomes more kid-friendly.
The light fixtures that you choose play a central role in giving the room character. Ideally, the light in a room should be scaled to the size of the room. You must therefore resist the temptation to use too little light in a big room or to use too much light in a small room.
The most comfortable furniture will lose its allure when you use some of those common tiny and hard throw pillows. Even if you bought them with the furniture, you should consider replacing them with some huge, soft and overstuffed pillows – the kinds that make you feel like they are hugging you.
Misarranging furniture on a rug
A rug should be chosen with the furniture in mind and it is also important that the furniture on it is arranged properly. If you have a large rug, you could place all the furniture legs on it. However, if the rug is small, placing all the legs on it will diminish the significance of the rug. In a situation like this, just placing the front legs of the furniture on the rug will be fine.
