Hiring an Interior design specialist to design your home is not a mandate. There are so many resources online that you can easily find some great examples of interior design styles that will perfectly suit your home and personality. Having said that, while designing a home there are some really common mistake that almost everyone makes. These interior design mistakes in Indian homes are easily avoidable and if present can be fixed quite easily. When you buy a home from PropBuying, we could even suggest some good resources like our real estate blog that could help you design your perfect home. Let’s take a look at what some of these mistakes are and how we can avoid them.
- Shopping Budget:
Before you go out there splurging your cash on things, have a fixed budget in mind. Your budget should ideally be based on what you need. Have a basic idea of the type and kind of Furniture you require for different rooms. Have an ideal design in your mind. Spend your money only on things that you actually need. If you have a home loan to pay off than rather than spending on top end furniture it would make more sense to pay that off rather than spending on expensive furniture and accessories that you might not even need. Plan ahead and plan well.
- Do The Carpets Match The Drapes:
Before you paint you walls have a few things cleared up. You should have a theme in mind for different rooms. If you end up painting your walls before you buy your furniture you will have to limit your choices when it comes to furniture options. If you like furniture but it doesn’t match your Wall colour you will have a mismatched room which will look out of place in your home. Think of a general theme, stick to the theme and then move ahead with your house colouring.
- Painting and Photos:
Wall hangings can add an extra dimension to the wall. Depending on how narrow or elongated you want the wall to seem, you can make changes to your wall hanging placements. Bunching them all in one area will make even a long wall seem narrow while spacing them apart will draw the eye of the viewer making the wall seem longer than it actually is. You can use paintings and photos to create a spatial phenomenon in your home. Make sure to use appropriate photo frames for your pictures and see that the paintings that you buy go well with the overall theme of the room. We have written about how to pick artwork for your home, in case you would like some references for the same.
- Personality On Display:
Your new home is a part of you, and it should show. If your home is not giving hints to your personality in its design then you might have made a mistake already. There are some homes that go overboard with their personality theme which can be a sore sight. If you incorporate ideas from your own life while designing your home it will feel so much more like home. When you experiment, you may strike gold, so don’t be afraid to do so every now and then, just ensure that you don’t go overboard.
