If it doesn’t happen to you, surely you know someone who, no matter how hard they try, never gets it right with the decoration of their home. No matter what they try to do, no matter how impeccably clean the house is, they repeatedly get it wrong, and their house doesn’t look the way it should. That happens frequently and has some explanations.
It must be taken into account that, in any case, the decoration of houses is very particular. What one person may find attractive, another may find awful. In this case, we are talking about those really serious mistakes that we can all distinguish. Generally, we make the mistake of thinking that the house will appear at a higher level in this way. However, this usually achieves the opposite.
Not taking into account the reality of the house when decorating
Undoubtedly, this is the main reason for mistakes. Not considering what the house is like makes people make serious mistakes. A good example is that of small houses that are overloaded excessively with decorative elements. Another example can be an excess of ornamentation that prevents even distinguishing the shapes of the house itself.
That is something that is not only seen in interiors. Also, the exterior decoration of the house can be affected by this type of error. Let’s not think it is only because of excess; it can also be because of scarcity. One thing is minimalist decoration, which is perfectly acceptable, and another thing is to leave empty spaces that affect the whole decoration.
Not having a uniform criterion
It is not necessary for decoration to remain faithful to a single style. A house can combine different looks. But it is important to have a uniform criterion about what you want. When you have a single point of view, what you achieve is to distribute the decorative effort reasonably. We will not put elements that clash aesthetically with each other.
Nor will we use components that fight with the colors or the type of floors or ceilings. In short, the idea is to maintain a global vision and to stay as close as possible to what the house itself and its structure, colors, and shapes demand. Generally, we make the mistake of thinking that the house will appear at a higher level in this way. However, this usually achieves the opposite.
Not trusting professionals
Not trusting professionals is another common mistake. When we talk about trusting professionals, we are not only referring to decoration companies, which logically have a cost for their work. It also refers, in many cases, that the user can proceed to get information through magazines, Internet platforms, or simply the advice of consultants in large shopping centers dedicated to decoration.
