The interior décor of the house is a pivotal part of designing your living space. Not only does it require financial investment, but it also needs attention to detail that will make the place appear lively. Still, one must ensure not to make a design decision that will make your house look cheap.


Why designing important?

Though expensive, interior decoration makes the space look beautiful. It's the first thing that catches your eye when you enter the house. One right decision can amp up the space, whereas indeed the smallest wrong choice can ruin the outlook of a room. Thus, it's essential that you consider the advice of experts while designing your dream home.


1. Choosing Inappropriate Lighting

When you enter the room, it should neither be too bright nor too dull. Thus, it's a must that you choose the befitting light for any room. A dull light source can make the space appear tacky, and a harsh light source can affect your eyes.



The stylish way to choose the lighting in a room is by adding two or further sources. It'll allow you to adjust the brilliance in the room according to your mood and conditions. You can choose an overhead lamp, lighting near windows and a bulb or chandelier above the table.

2. Keeping the walls empty

People choosing for a minimalistic interior frequently leave the walls empty. It makes the space look cheap. Minimalism is about not overcrowding the room. Hence, you can either put a set of three paintings or decorate the walls with photos attached to elegant frames.



3. Overstuffing the entryways

Your entryway should look polished and sophisticated because it's the first thing people see when they come into your home. Featuring an overstuffed hall invites weird aesthetics as soon as guests enter your house. Thus, you must always do with a sophisticated look that fulfills your introductory conditions. You can also have a textured wall or hang many paintings or frames besides some necessary furniture pieces.



4. Cluttering rooms

No matter the theme, if the room is cluttered, it'll reflect inadequately on your organization and cleaning skills. On the other hand, a decluttered and organized room and kitchen add a precious look to the space.



5. Hanging mass-produced artwork

It's accessible that the mass-produced artwork is cheap and falls under your design budget. Still, it'll not add any distinctive look to the living or bedroom. Thus, you must go for a one-of-a-kind oil or artwork. Hanging black or golden frames with black and white or colorful photos is always an alternative that you can choose.



6. A too small Rug

When picking a rug, make sure it's large enough to fit right under your furniture so it isn't simply floating in the room. A rug that's too large will make your space feel too full while a too-small rug looks erratic and, well, cheap.



7. Placing cutesy showpieces

We all like to collect things that we find lovable. While some look cute in the living room, study, or kid’s room, most of it doesn't complement the interiors and theme. Some people indeed find them childish.



8. Unmatched furniture set

Outfitting a bedroom with a matched set from a big box store may be easy, but it's not necessarily affordable and it can make the room look like an afterthought. Provisioning furniture sets can wash down all your hard work and make the space appear cluttered and shy. The furniture doesn't have to be precious, but it must compliment the wall paint and theme of the room.
