There will always be a profound feeling whenever you decorate your home. Although decorating your home can also be challenging and frustrating at times, but the end results would pay it off. Unfortunately, not all homeowners who just didn’t realize that they are repeating the same mistakes when it comes to designing their home. Committing mistakes when it comes to home decorating is normal.
However, just because you made some mistakes, that does not mean it is okay for a home design. And mind you, this is not a good habit to start with. It does not matter if you live in Manila properties, there’s no reason for you to commit the same mistakes some homeowners made. So to give you an idea, we list down some decorating styles you should avoid.
Having more than one focal point
Having a focus at home is used to feel more inviting and offer a more comfortable place to stay. This feature can be your picture, mirror, or dramatic piece of furniture that catches every person’s eyes. But there’s a caveat, though; a good focal point can only do once. If you tend to have more than one focal point at home, this might not be a good idea, since it can make the room feel disjointed and leaves a person’s eye without any rest.
For you to be comfortable, you have to choose one focal point that would complement the place. Don’t be overwhelmed with the spaces you have at home and just choose one to make a good and satisfying focal point.
Not considering your lifestyle
Just because the interior or exterior home design is a trend, that doesn’t mean it is also good for you. Nope, not all! Obviously, you are not going to do some renovations to your home if you don’t even need it, right? But if you still continue to follow the trend without any knowledge on whether or not it fits into your home, then you might regret your decision later on.
Not testing your paint color
Colors are important. The color of your home doesn’t just add beauty, but it can also create a mood or ambiance at home. And if you are not careful enough when choosing the right color paint for your walls, then you might not like the result of the interior and exterior design. Before anything else, you should not forget to test the color before choosing and buying a particular paint. If you think that the color of the paint is a little bit dry to look at on your walls, then it is better for you to find another paint that would match or complete the design of your home.
Too many throw pillows
Throw pillows are one thing that gives beauty to our home. Apparently, it doesn’t just add beauty; it also provides us with the feeling of comfort whenever we want to relax at home. Throw pillows can also give a homey feeling or ambiance on the place. However, having too many throw pillows at home is also not nice to look at. Instead of giving us the comfortable that we want, it provides us with the feeling of annoyance since we don’t know where to seat already.
When it comes to adding throw pillows on the couch, you have to make sure that there will be a space where you can still seat. Perhaps, 2-3 pillows on a couch are enough.
Before deciding to follow such design, you also have to think again and again if you need it, or if it is worth it. Think and then decide. With that, you will know what and what not to do when it comes to the design of your home.
