'Common Interior Design Mistakes.'
1. Too Much.
Don't be too hard on yourself. You are one of many having a hard time with this issue. Plenty more are in the same boat, mainly since the reason is natural and understandable.
We totally get it.
Folks want lots of stuff within their house.
Everyone suffers from this virus - The "Too Much" virus.
Too much furniture, too much accessories, too much design styles, too much lighting fixtures and electronics - Just too much.
In our materialistic modern world, about which it can be sadly said almost "sanctifies" object ownership, the concept of "Minimalism" does not get the respect it deserves. Everyone wants "More Things," and "More" means much more than is necessary.
As a result, a widespread misconception has been established, which claims the more you fill your house with 'Things,' the better.
But in many cases, it's actually quite the opposite - The lack of "Loading" within your home space with too many objects is the right action that will help you when it comes to maintaining a luxurious and quality home style.
In a considerable number of cases, 'Minimalism' is the correct approach towards proper home design. You can check out this article to enrich your knowledge on the subject.
Do not make it confusing due to overcrowding
So our first advice is to ensure you do not get infected with the "Too Much" virus.
Don't be narrow-minded - sometimes, you should go with minimalism.
2. Just Be U.
Personal identity is quite elusive nowadays, and it's easy to 'get lost.'
Trends and temporary fashion norms surround us from every corner.
Every day, a new cover story is published about "The Next Big Thing," and The field of home design is no different.
The described above may cause your Home design style to be anything but "You."
A fascinating article on the subject can be found here.
We sincerely recommend you to be true to yourself and your favorite styles that match your personality structure. Suppose your personal inclination appreciates a specific design style - stick to it. And no matter what the passing trend and various neighbors and friends may say. In the end, the one who spends most of his time in this house is you, And your personal sense of comfort should be highly prioritized.
Leave your imprint on the house
The above example is undoubtedly a significant one from our common interior design mistakes list. Do as much as you can to avoid it.
Your home should reflect who you are as a person.
Do not underestimate it.
3. Be Consistent.
As paragraph One mentions, we live in an overwhelming world of "Too Much" and "Lots." Be careful not to go too far with your desires.
Please keep it simple and be consistent.
It's ok to provide an interesting twist every now and then, but remember - consistency is the name of the game!
Suppose you decided your hallway needs to be painted white, please! Refrain from painting the room next to him glowing yellow just because your feng shui facilitator has told you it will give you good energy.
The same goes for furniture design. Once you choose a specific Vintage design style that expresses ideas from the 1930s, Please! Avoid combining modern and innovative furniture from Silicon Valley culture along with it. It will undermine the principle of consistency, which is essential, and ultimately, you will embarrass yourself.
Although there are experts for certain design styles, there are no experts for mixing styles, for the simple reason - There is no such thing! (And spare us - 'Chic boho style' is not equivalent to mixed).
Maintaining consistency is key
Maintain consistency, and remember that solidity is not necessarily bad.
4. Understand Your Limitations.
We all want to be the best.
The best in sports, the best in writing, the best at making other people laugh, the best at fixing things in our home, Etc.
But with that being said, one must know his limitations.
Even if you think you are a great handyman, please! Do not think you can replace a professional in various home repairs.
Stick to what you are good at and let the professionals do their job - Each in its own field. Just because you have successfully replaced a shower curtain does not mean you are an expert in bathroom design.
A common interior design mistake among those who want to design their home by themselves is to think they are experts in these things when they are not. A little modesty never hurt anyone.
Know your limitations. There are places you better not go into.
It would be best to research your market thoroughly and then decide about the professionals that will best suit you and your needs and let them lead. Otherwise, you will do more harm than good.
