Decorating your own place is fun, exciting, challenging, and calls for creativity and resourcefulness. However, it can become tiring and difficult once you don’t know how to choose appropriate house décor. The key to having an attractive house lies in the kind of house décor we use in our home.
Looking for the appropriate house décor can be very challenging especially if you have so many things you want to put in your house.
In addition, your excitement can sometimes get in the way especially if you’re in a hurry to see the effects of the house décor you place in the house. This is one of the reasons why people often end up dissatisfied with the outcome of their house decorating project.
You can avoid making the same mistakes by knowing beforehand what you must and mustn’t do.
Below are common mistakes you have to avoid when choosing your house décor:
You do not understand the uniqueness of your house
There may be instances wherein you saw an example of how a house décor should look like in a certain corner of a house. What you see is how beautiful that corner looks.
What you don’t see is what surrounds that corner. Before you start to mentally look for a similar corner in your houses to put in a similar house décor think first. What comes after that corner?
Will the décor look out of place in its surroundings? What applies to others beautifully may not apply to your homes in the same manner.
You use all the nice decors all at once
When we shop for house decor, tendency is we buy all the nice looking things available. That’s ok. But the truth is not all nice looking décors look good together.
A medieval wall clock with a plush looking oriental vase will not look good beside each other. Neither be overexcited nor feel obliged to use all at the same time.
Your taste and your adviser’s taste do not conform to each other
Have you ever had that nagging feeling that even after perfectly executing all the advice of an interior decorator on house décor you still don’t seem settled with it? This is because perhaps it wasn’t what you truly wanted in the first place.
This is why it is so important that you know what you want before seeking out an advice from anyone else. Your style and preference should be the first thing to consider. The job of interior decorators or anyone who gives their advice is to make it better.
You mix your new ones with the old
Many people prefer keeping their old house décor due to its sentimental value. Before they knew it, they have a lot of dust gatherers in the house. If you are serious to create a new atmosphere with new house décor, make sure to remove unnecessary decors that can hinder your goal.
You have no defined theme
The thing is many people just buy decors because they look attractive. They no longer mind if they go well with the rest of the furniture or design of the house.
One way to know exactly what house décor to buy is to match it with your theme. Before you start shopping for decors, have a theme in mind which will serve as your guide.
