At Bleu Haven Homes, we are passionate about interior design, and we want to help you make your space the best it can be. Over the years, we have helped countless clients improve their interior design and elevate their homes or offices to new levels of comfort and elegance, but we’ve also seen our fair share of botched DIY design attempts. In this article, we will go over a few of the most common mistakes people make when it comes to interior design and explain how to avoid them.
- Poor Lighting – One extremely common mistake people make in interior design is not including enough lighting. Regardless of how well you’ve arranged the furniture or how beautiful the other elements are, the overall design will not succeed as well as it should because no one will be able to see it. We encourage you to include plenty of lighting in your space to supplement your overhead lights and make the space feel brighter.
- Prioritizing Looks Over Comfort – Another mistake many people make when working on an interior design project is choosing furniture based on looks alone, neglecting comfort. Remember, while you want your space to look good, you also need to be able to use it, and that means choosing chairs and couches that are comfortable to sit on.
- Sticking to Walls – A third mistake people often make in their interior design efforts is placing all their furniture next to walls. This creates a huge void in the middle of the room and prevents easy conversation. Instead, look for ways to use the middle of your space.
