Whether you’re revamping your home or decorating a new one, it’s always tough to decide what looks good and what doesn’t. Watch out for these dos and don’ts of design décor:

Dos

Corners are usually left empty, looking dull and boring. Don’t commit this mistake! Work up on every corner of your home and make it attractive. Either paint it differently or hang in a bunch of photos and paintings. You can also add a different chair in the small space to give it that creative look.

Pay Attention to Details:

Don’t forget to pay attention to details such as not focusing on your entrance, stairs or even kitchen counter for that matter. Entrance is the first thing that people notice when they visit your home, so why not pay attention to it? You can add a hanging on the door or even place a floor vase there.

Trust your Instincts:

Whichever design you like, never doubt yourself! We all have different viewpoints and our homes should be a true reflection of that. Don’t include something that someone else likes and don’t remove something just because someone said ‘it’s too bold.’ Trust yourself.

Don’ts

Don’t get so engrossed in decorating your home that you forget to add unique pieces in your space. These pieces can change the look of your room completely. Maybe you only needed that interesting piece to revamp your living room instead of buying that new sofa set? Think.

Arrange furniture symmetrically:

No doubt symmetrical furniture arrangement makes the room look calm and in order, but even too much of good things can make your room look monotonous. Either arrange your furniture asymmetrically or if you like to keep it symmetrical, then choose to hang your paintings and decoration items asymmetrically. Do it and you’ll feel the difference!

Pillow Pile-up:

If your guest is sitting on the front six inches of your sofa or is cradling a cushion in his lap, it’s time to rethink your pillow placement. There’s a limit to the number of pillows you can toss on your sofa. Remember, if a pillow doesn’t fit comfortably behind the back, it shouldn’t be there taking up valuable seating space.
