While designing your homes there are some common yet unobserved mistakes that you make, that could impact the whole look of your living spaces and prevent the rooms from reaching full potential. A room’s proportion, lighting, artwork and décor all matter while curating a design pattern for it. 

Hanging artwork too high or buying out furniture that is trendy and not comfortable impacts your functionality and makes you uncomfortable.

Utilities, storage, art fixtures, textures, materials all matter for a functional living.

Create a personalized space or remove unwanted doors or clustered windows and fix glass windows to maximize space and lighting with sufficient security. Do not go according to the layout plan of a room and maximize the potential for a brilliant home. 


With endless buying options to choose from, it becomes confusing on choosing the furniture type and color palette or the whole aesthetic of the house, All you have to do is ask yourself what colors you like and what aesthetics suits your personality more or what textures make you happy. 

A maximalist cannot go for a minimalistic white wall as it just won’t make you satisfied. We are here to help you in deciding the same for your interiors and avoid these common mistakes that prevent your room from reaching its full potential.



INTERIORS ACCORDING TO YOUR EXTERIORS

Your house layout plan is an essential element that is the most obvious as well. Occupying the spaces that could make a defined space and leaving out the spaces that would inflict clusters is to be planned according to the interior layout plan of your house. Making informed choices when it comes to building a room from the ground up should be your priority. Removing unwanted and extra doors or walls that could block possible sunlight or restrict movability in space to make a personalized home interior is a hook you would want to nail. For an L- shaped house you should buy furniture that doesn’t take up too much space or is too bulky. For a family house, you could always go for multifunctional furniture like roll-out beds or tables with storage that is less cluttered and makes out space for you and your family.



 

FUNCTIONALITY IS PRIME

When choosing furniture and storage materials that make the primary pieces or fixtures of a room around which the entire room is planned out, make sure that they are durable and sturdy and made from materials that last longer. Such furniture should not be bought at cheap hand me down prices as it’s a long term investment that saves you a lot of small-term hassle of furnishings. Selecting a good set of sofas and central tables and dining tables that could make the single standalone piece in a room is essential. Make sure there is storage in your tables and cabinetry. Vintage furniture is the best when it comes to storing a lot of things while making sure of the aesthetic appeal of the room. Small tables and cabins (with not much space to store) often make us buy them however all they do is occupy space and restrict functionality in a room.



 

LIGHTING FOR AMPLIFIED INTERIORS

Proper lighting is quintessential for your interior décor. Buying too bright or too dim light can affect your eyesight and space dimensions as well. Lighting affects your mood and the room’s outlook. Shabby lighting like a huge metal display of light would make the room dark and rustic and occupy space. Well-lit rooms make the interiors of the room lift. Calm lighting with soft-hued shades make you calmer and relaxed which could be installed in the bedrooms and bright lights can be installed in the ceilings of the common room to make it look bright and functioning.



 

TIDY HOMES WITH PROPER STORAGE

Storage plays an important role in your rooms. They make up space and prevent clutter in the house. A closed chest of drawers or cabinets with multiple drawers help you compartmentalize spaces for varied purposes. Make a clean and tidy room with one time buy wooden cabinets or almirahs that could hold up bigger and bulky material that could save you a lot of space in your alleyways and balconies that are usually the spots for all the stuff that you do not want. From a study wooden or metal cabinet to a beautiful cane or knit basket for storing clothes, you can make your interiors look bright and beautiful without compromising on appropriate storage. 



 

DO NOT PAINT FIRST

While curating and designing furniture and pieces in your homes, whether you are revamping your spaces or buying a house for the first time, Do not choose to paint first. It not only could clash with the furniture you have bought or are about to buy but could also be damaged while moving the furniture pieces in the house. Since a certain color of the furniture cannot be fixed when you go out to buy primary fixtures for your house, it is much easier to buy the furniture or decorative pieces first and then choose the color for your walls. This allows you to be flexible and free while selecting a piece or magnum opus and then selecting on the color palette of the house that goes well accordingly to the interiors. If you have bought brighter and textured materials like rugs or a pink colored lamp, you can opt for a minimal or neutral-toned wall paint that could bring out the combinations and shades of the interiors. In case of a more minimalistic furniture choice, you can pick a bright yellow or wooden paneled wall texture that enhances the aesthetics of the space.



 

LONG TERM FURNITURE PLANS

Planning out what furniture option that would occupy as the standalone piece which is an investment for at least a decade would require a durable product that could be expensive. Planning out your budget would ease your way into buying the more expensive furniture that lasts longer and the rest can be spent on luxe or decorating pieces. Your mattress and your couch are your best friends. Investing in the furniture that is most common and often used should be an easy option while deciding on what to spend on most. Side table or console tables, lamps and showpieces can be thrifted or purchased at lower prices which can be easily replaced as well and won’t hurt your budget or your feelings when broken. You have to spend carefully on luxury and invest smartly in primary furniture.



 

DECORATING TOO MUCH OR TOO LITTLE

Installing solid metal furniture and not incorporating softer textures is an easy and most commonly made mistake. You have to keep a balance between solid furniture and softer textures that could bring warmth and softness to your interiors. Maintenance is key when it comes to furniture, Polished furniture, well-painted walls, protected natural material based flooring through rugs and carpets makes your furniture last longer and also makes it more presentable without having the need to buy more all the time or throwing it away and having an uncomfortable amount of space in the rooms. Too much art or photo frames in your house and incorporating them in all the walls without leaving study space can make your interiors clumsy and clustered. For a clean yet interesting look maintain a balance of material, textures, colors and do not overdo with the decorations in the name of interior designing. Having too much leftover space is also a  common issue that could be addressed by simple yet impactful installations like plants or console tables or making a seating space adding extra relaxing space with style. 



 

FURNITURE PLACEMENT IS EVERYTHING!

Your furniture choices are the ones that make or break an interior look. However, buying good furniture and placing it in a conventional style would not make your interiors maximize on style. Planning out your furniture and its placement for a clean and brilliant look that enhances their beauty and also combines the whole room together is the point of this heading. A clear space demarcation could help you build this plan up. Do not let things just float in a room like a smaller rug that is not big enough for your room or a  sole table that is kept for storing books and leaving it in a corner. Combine the elements of the room like the natural lighting in the room can incorporate a plant shelf or a storage shelf that has books and greener in it and can show off beautiful magnum opus without disturbing the main space of the room. A unique blending of disproportionate space can bring out elevation and textures in a room. Do not underestimate windows, with proper lighting in a room, everything is visible and lift up a space.
