There are a few mistakes I see my clients make over and over. A quick review and a few tips will help you avoid these issues in your rooms. Here are the first three most common mistakes:
Over furnishing a room – This is by far the most common mistake. People buy furniture too large or use way too many things. This makes even a large space seem crowded and small. Purchase the right size furniture and don’t over crowd it. Multi-functional furnishings will reduce the number of pieces needed.
Buried in Clutter and disorganization - If you organize your day-to-day clutter and eliminate stuff you seldom or never use, you will have more free space. Purge unwanted items. Make room to display your collections and provide storage for things you want to keep.
Not Paying Attention to Quantity versus Quality - Buy only what you love and avoid cheap knickknacks and art. Buy the best art, furniture and accessories you can afford. The quality of good items will last and may hold resale value if you choose to eliminate them later. Cheap stuff is always cheap and will become throw away items. I always prefer my clients to buy less but buy better.
