We Make 8 Interior Design Mistakes in Our Homes.

We’ve all felt the impulse to acquire new furniture and then try to arrange it attractively while creating or renovating a place. However, few of us succeed in transforming our home into a pleasant nest, and instead, we end up with a frigid, awkward living space.

Bright Side discovered what mistakes we make while arranging furniture and how to avoid them. We exposed a handful of errors that practically everyone does while installing sanitary engineering in the bonus section.

1. You lay furniture on the carpet against the regulations.

Designers suggest three strategies for correctly placing furniture on a rug:

  • Place the furniture directly on the carpet, leaving about 12-18 inches between the furniture’s edge and the carpet’s edge.
  • Arrange everything so that no furniture is standing on the carpet. In this scenario, it is important that the carpet is not too tiny, as this would produce a cluttered appearance in the space.
  • Place the furniture so that just the front legs are on the carpet. This approach allows you to visually merge multiple items in one group, such as a couple of recliners and a table.

2. You select kitchen furnishings before purchasing home appliances.

When creating a kitchen, it’s best to start with kitchen appliances (such as a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave oven, and other required things), then pick kitchen pieces such as a dining table, etc. Otherwise, you may find yourself with no room to store kitchen appliances, and the area will appear cluttered and cramped.

3. There is less than 40 inches between the kitchen island and the main unit.

A kitchen island is an excellent way to increase storage and workspace. However, it only works when the kitchen is quite large. If the room is tiny, the island will merely take up space and provide little benefit. It is estimated that the island should have roughly 40 inches of vacant space surrounding it. It will be tough to maneuver around the kitchen if you do not follow this guideline.

4. There are no zones in your large bathroom.

When a bathroom is large, owners frequently arrange all of the furniture and equipment along the walls, leaving a lot of free space in the centre. This just doesn’t look right. Designers advocate dividing the room into zones in this instance. It is possible to accomplish so using a glass wall, barriers, or even folding screens. The ideal approach is to divide the area into two or three sections: a washing zone, a toilet zone, and a bathing zone.

5. There is no focal point in the room.

It is hard to decorate a space beautifully if it lacks a center that will serve as the designer’s starting point. A window view, a fireplace, an accent wall (especially if hand-painted), a piece of art, or even a coffee table may all function as focus points. If required, and if the size of the space allows, two (but no more than two) focal points can be used. A greater number of focus points will make the space appear congested.

A television set frequently becomes the focal point of a room. Designers, on the other hand, do not endorse it. If friends or relatives come to see you, you’ll be sitting right next to the screen, which isn’t conducive to excellent conversation.

6. There are two things of almost equal height standing immediately next to each other.

When you glance around a room, your eye should “jump,” not go in one line, according to a rule. This may be achieved by arranging furniture of varying heights throughout the space. If you have two high closets, position one in the left corner of the room and the other in the opposite corner — this will help them “balance” each other. If you position these closets next to each other, the room will appear congested and tight.

Here’s another bit of advice: mix and match shapes. A round-shaped object should be paired with a square-shaped item, and straight lines should be paired with wavy lines. A round or oval table, for example, should be placed near a rectangular couch. It will give the room a lovely, unique look.

7. The kitchen table takes up too much room.

One of the worst solutions for a tiny kitchen is a large dining table. But there are occasions when we wish to get together with friends but don’t have enough room. In this scenario, the following trick is preferable: Instead of normal sofas and chairs, choose benches or backless chairs. The former may be concealed beneath the table.

8. The couch is positioned with its back to the door.

Designers do not advocate positioning a couch with its back to the door since it causes significant pain for a person. If you sit with your back to the door, you won’t be able to relax, and you’ll probably be frightened (consciously or unconsciously) that someone may sneak up on you.

Create an artificial barrier if you don’t have the opportunity to relocate the sofa or just don’t want to. Place a small table behind the back of the sofa and decorate it with flowers or lights — just make sure it’s something tall enough to separate the person sitting on the couch from whoever enters the room.

Many individuals have recently chosen freestanding bathtubs, but they do not look well in every bathroom. If the room is 7 feet long and the bathtub takes up 6.5 feet, it makes no sense to put it there since it would seem untidy. One of the primary benefits of a freestanding bathtub is the ability to clean the floor around it. If the space between the tub and the walls is less than 4 inches, this will be difficult. The ideal distance from the farthest wall is 8 inches, and it should be around 1 foot from its surrounding walls.
