Picking curtains which are too heavy for the room
A lot of people buy curtains which are just too heavy for the rest of the room. If you do choose heavy drapes, they often drown out other beautiful areas of the room that should be the focus. Therefore, you should consider going for a neutral color so that it doesn’t overshadow other areas. As this feature says, go for roller blinds as these still create a subtle block out effect.
Overfilling the room with items
It’s so easy to buy a lot of items for your living room. After all, you will see so many beautiful things you want when you are out shopping for your lounge. But overfilling the room with too much will often make it look overcrowded and small. Therefore, you need to think carefully about where you will place the items and if there is room for it before making a purchase. That way, it will stop you making a vital mistake when it comes to items for your living room!
Not thinking of storage
A lot of people forget to think about storage when creating the perfect living room. But it’s essential that you have some form of storage so that you don’t end up with clutter in your living room. It will make the room look messy and smaller than it is. Large bookshelves, for example, are a great way of keeping your stuff organized while creating an interesting area in the room. It can often become the center of attention in your living room. Therefore, having storage facilities will ensure you have an easy to maintain and functional living space.
Not being creative when it comes to little extras
It’s often the little things which can make your living room stand out from the rest of your home. Accessories such as vases and candles are ideal to make it a lot more personal to you. However, a lot of people choose simple accessories which you can find in the high street stores. Therefore, to make the room truly unique, you could even make some handmade items to add to your living room. Just look at this blog where they created a pineapple vase which you could place in your lounge for a day or two. By being creative in your living room, it will look unique and personal to you.
A lot of people make the mistake of choosing a boring and dull color for their living room. Therefore, don’t be afraid to go for fun colors which will make the room look brighter and beautiful!
