When it comes to interior design, there are no rules. However, there are some design mistakes you should try to avoid. To help you design the home of your dreams we have compiled a list of the 7 most common mistakes people make.

  1. Forget Fads

Fads never stick around for long however, there are some fads you just can’t resist, so invest in pieces that can easily be swapped out and don’t cost a fortune (smaller accessories, throws or cushion covers). Additionally, try slowly incorporating it into your design to see if it can go the distance, the trick is to not make any design decisions on a whim. Avoid larger, permanent design elements that are expensive and not as easily replaced, such as wallpaper and flooring. That being said, if you do want to go with something a little more ‘trendy,’ try it out in a smaller room such as a mud room or bathroom.

  1. Skimping on Storage

    Modern Storage Shelves

Invest in ample amounts of storage to avoid having your space feel cluttered and yourself from being overwhelmed and stressed. It is important to consider your belongings and organization when redecorating. That way, if you need to, you can invest in furniture pieces that offer storage solutions. Such as, ottomans or additional storage.

  1. Little Thought to Lighting

Lighting sets the mood and ambiance of any room, which is why it should be carefully considered. With poor lighting you lose the comfort and functionality of the space. For the best effect, lighting should be layered. To achieve the best result start with task lighting or spots to illuminate workspaces, such as kitchen counters, desks, bathroom mirrors, or dining areas. You can then add lamps or string lighting to alter the overall ambiance. Don’t forget you can also use candles and lanterns to add to the cozy factor.

  1. Accenting the Wrong Wall

Who doesn’t love a good accent wall? Especially with all the possibilities that are out there today! Rustic reclaimed wood or shiplap, murals, wallpaper, decals, paint and so much more. Your options are truly endless. The trick is choosing the right wall to feature. Make sure you spend some time scoping out all the walls and features in the room. If you highlight the wrong wall you may be drawing unwanted attention to things such as heaters, radiators, appliances or doors. If you have your heart set on an accent wall but are still unsure of where to feature it, you can never go wrong with fireplace walls or bedhead walls.

  1. Furniture Overload

Often, in the living room, to help make the room feel less sparse and bare we will overcompensate by overloading the perimeter of the room with furniture. However, this can actually have the opposite effect and make the room feel cluttered and smaller than it really is.

To make the living room inviting and functional it is best to arrange your furniture for watching tv or engaging in conversation or so that everyone can see each other. A good rule of thumb, if a piece of furniture isn’t serving a purpose, get rid of it. And if a bare corner in the room makes you anxious, invest in artwork and plants to liven up the space.

  1. Don’t Invest in Disposable Design

Disposable Design is the equivalent to Fast Fashion in the clothing industry. If you are familiar with Fast Fashion than you know it is all about trends and fads and has little to do with quality and longevity. This is the same for interior design. So how do you steer clear of disposable design? Stay away from fads and investing in low quality accessories that will likely be thrown in the garbage after a year. Things such as cheap, low-quality textiles that can’t withstand everyday wear and tear are pieces you will want to stay clear from. When you are shopping for your home ask yourself, “Will I love this in a year?” Additionally, buy the best-quality that you can afford or buy the pieces you truly love even if it means waiting until you can save up and afford it.

  1. Go with your Gut

In today’s day and age it is hard to not be influenced by what you see on social media and Pinterest. However, don’t let suggestions from loved ones or those Instagram influencers cloud your own judgment. By doing so you may end up with a design you really aren’t all that happy with. Of course, it is okay to take tips and ideas from the people around you, but always trust your gut. It will pay off in the long run with. The result will be a space you truly love and are proud of.
