For many people, one of the most exciting aspects of moving into a new home is being able to decorate exactly the way they want. There are no hard and fast rules about what you can or cannot do when you are decorating your home, but there are ways to make your space look its best. Keep reading to find out if you are making some of these common home decorating mistakes.
Too Many Photographs on Display
Photographs are an excellent way to decorate your home. Whether you display photos of loved ones, beloved pets, or family vacations, they make for interesting décor and conversation pieces at parties. However, it is possible to have too many pictures on display. Instead of framing all of your photos, try displaying just a few at a time. It will make these pictures seem more special and reduce the appearance of clutter on your mantel or coffee table.
Overdoing It with Themes
Creating a theme in a certain room is a good way to show off your interests and express your personality. If you go too far with a theme, however, it can feel kitschy and stressed. Rather than going overboard with a certain theme and making all design components of the room fit, focus on a few accents to subtly show your love for the beach or the mountains, for example.
Awkwardly Sized Furniture
When you are shopping for new furniture, it is easy to lose sight of how much space you actually have at home. Bringing home a couch that is too large for your space will make the room feel cramped and unwelcoming. Even getting furniture that is too small can be a mistake, as it can make the room appear cold and unfinished. Bring room dimensions with you when you are furniture shopping so you can make better choices about furniture sizes.
