There are 7 deadly sins of home decorating which you should avoid! When you commit these sins, they make your space look boring, stuffy, and outdated. On the other hand, they could make your home just look overdone or wacky! Together let’s take a look.
Sin 1 – Painting Without Trying a Color Swatch First!
The first deadly sin is painting your entire space without trying out a color swatch. Because paint is a different color after it dries, this could be a recipe for disaster!
Sin 2 – Taxidermy Overload
Yes, country chic is still trending hot. But stuffing a room with antlers and deer heads does not equal chic. One focal piece of tasteful taxidermy is all you really need.
Sin 3 – Don’t Position All The Furniture Against Your Walls
I know, that you faithful Livinator readers know, that you shouldn’t rim the walls of your room with furnishings. It’s awkward and not inviting for guests. Even if you can’t pull every piece of furniture out due to space constraints, a slight angle to one or two will do the trick.
Sin 4 – Incorrectly Hung Curtains
There are two pockets sewn across the top of rod pocket style curtains. The top one is meant to ruffle or pleat the curtain tops. The second one is to slide the rod through. Surprisingly, a lot of people don’t know this!
Sin 5 – A Shabby Front Door
A shabby front door with cracked, peeling, or faded paint is always a no-no. This gives a poor first impression of your home!
Tip 6 – Faux Flowers = Faux Pas
While we all want to incorporate nature into our decor, faux flowers aren’t natural. They’re plastic and nylon. Enough said.
Sin 7 – Insufficient Lighting
When you don’t plan correctly, you can be left with insufficient lighting. This leaves a room barely functional.
In conclusion, you should always think through your decorating plan. This will help you avoid the 7 deadly sins of home decorating.
