Decorating Mistakes

Decorating MistakesDecorating Mistakes, Everyone makes mistakes, and the old saying is never truer than when it comes to decorating our homes. Because trends come and go, each brings a new series of errors of decoration. Here are some trends that should be revised or eliminated a total of:

1. More false. If it is a scene of imitation or faux texture is just a nice way of saying fake. A little texture or faux paint treatment can go a long way. This is a case of less is not only more, the better? If your wall treatment looks like cake frosting, it’s faux.

2. Pillow plethora. A little comfort is a good thing. Much of this makes it impossible to sit on the couch or into bed. What is worse? Karate chopped the pillow.

3. Themed accessories. You just need a good shell to make a nod to the beach. An entire wall of shells is an exaggeration. Pull accessories along with color; be sure to include a variety of types, size and shape.

4. Tone deafness. In the era of Zen decor, it is easy to bathe a room in single tone beige and call it done. However, the room is devoid of life and lack of interest. Do not forget to add a touch of color to a room to life.

5. Beds headless. The beds are being allowed to stay in rooms without headers. This is a sin worse than the so-called gaming furniture. Nothing, I repeat, nothing is worse than a bed with no headboard.

6. Forgot hallways. Upon entering an empty hall it’s like driving a car without a grille. Sure, you get where you’re going, but you’ll get there ugly.

7. Vertical blind. If you live with vertical blinds is like living in the apartment complex a ’80 ‘s … forever. Replace the old resources more contemporary options such as window coverings panel track.

8. Green well. Although there are good fake plants, nothing says tacky and cheap artificial. Invest in quality silk trees that look real. If you’re looking artificial plant does not exist in nature, spending long. And do not forget to wash and dust off your silk plants.

9. Large panels and dirty. While not exactly may constitute elements of decoration, large windows are common now, as well as large expanses of glass. Just make sure you keep up your cleaning needs big.

10. Large in size, but small comfort. Achieving a balance between size and convenience when selecting furniture. Bigger is not always better – and certainly not always comfortable. Sofas and chairs with seats long might be handy if you play professional basketball, but you can lift the legs of a nanny, so that adults seem to be growing children, not to mention the fact that they are difficult to get in and out of. Before buying, try to fund furniture and make sure the guests feel comfortable, too.
