Here are some common mistakes and solutions to overcome the furniture problems:
1. Using Excessive Themes
Home decoration can be said as an art of its own; you have to think carefully about the theme and feel like what you want to be presented at home. Avoid using a lot of themes at once or redundant because it will make the house look messy and tacky. You should select a theme to be applied throughout the house and then adjust the furniture and colour curtains and choose the right paint for the room walls.
2. Wrong Furniture Placement
Many people are not paying attention to the layout of furniture in their homes, and that is a natural thing. In preparing furniture, for example, do not place some large furniture at once in a small room. For example, tables, cabinets and large sofas are placed closely together. Use the only furniture with a balanced composition and carefully consider the layout. You can choose a glass coffee table with small feet and then place it near a sofa that has a matching colour with the carpet and place cabinets or shelves in other rooms.
3. Using Furniture, You Do Not Like
One of the most common decorating mistakes is to keep things you do not like and not get rid of them. For example, old carpets that still exist in the living room, or wooden chairs that have weathered. Instead of adding aesthetics and comfort in the house, it actually reduces it. Of course, it must be removed.
4. Too Formal
You have enough formal shades in the office, not at home. Remember, home is a place that should make you comfortable, so avoid rigid or formal atmosphere. Do not use furniture as is commonly used for office decoration like a workbench or a formal desk. Choose a sofa, a bench, tables and cabinets that make the house feel homier.
5. Following the Latest Trend
There is no harm in following the trends, but do not be too attached to it in the home decor. The current decoration trends probably do not necessarily match the style of your home and the atmosphere your family wants to feel. Gather a lot of stuff because following the trend has no end to stop. Therefore, it is better you follow your own style and apply it to your home.
6. Small Carpet in the Middle of Large Room
Small carpets placed in the centre of the room will look like floats and disproportionate. Before choosing a carpet, first, measure the room you want to put on the carpet and choose the appropriate size. Do not forget to make sure the pattern or colour of the carpet match with other furniture. Put all the front legs of furniture (tables and chairs) on the carpet to look unified and proportionate.
