Take a look around your home right now. Are you happy with the way it looks? You might be content with your home’s appearance, but you’re probably not all that happy. Far too many homeowners allow themselves to be complacent with their home design, and that’s a problem.
Enough is enough. It’s time to get a little more creative about how you decorate and design your home. Keep your home looking fun and exciting by avoiding these boring interior design mistakes:
- Keeping or only going with boring furniture — Every home needs at least one or two boring furniture items that serve functionality purposes; beds, couches, tables, etc. But only going with these traditional pieces can make your home look bland. Even in the most eccentric home, too many boring furniture items can ruin its appearance.The entire U.S. furniture and furnishings market is worth about $106.7 billion, so there are clearly all kinds of original pieces of furniture that you can use to fill out your home. Consider nice bean bag chairs, for instance. There are huge bean bag lounge chairs that are just as comfortable as any couch on the planet, but will give your home’s entertainment space a great boost in creativity and appearance. Ditch your plain office chairs and check out some nice bean bag chairs.
- Hanging single photos all over the place — Family photos and art pieces are essential for a nice-looking home. These items can give your design some personality, but simply hanging single framed picture after single picture isn’t a great design tactic. We cannot stress this enough: get creative! Search on Pinterest and other online forums to get some awesome ideas on how to better decorate your home with art pieces and photo collages.
- Wasting a room — We’ve all been inside a home that has at least one room where no one has spent any time for the last 10 years. What’s the point of having that room at all? There are fancy dining room sets and a bulging chandelier that hangs from the ceiling, but no one ever goes in these rooms. If this sounds like your home, it’s time to change it up. Get rid of all those “fancy” items and have some fun with your new room. You’ll have a blank slate to work with and can turn it into a cool playroom, a nice office space, or even a workout area. It’s all up to you!
