Interior Decorating do’s and don’ts

Interior Decorating do’s and don’ts

Decorating a living space can be a lot of fun, especially if it’s your first apartment or home that you’re not sharing with roommates. However, there are some things that you’ll want to remember as you decorate, especially if it’s your first time. Here are some interior decorating do’s and don’ts to remember.

Do make it personal

It’s your space so you should feel free to decorate it as you like. Many first time decorators head out to a home décor store and buy everything from a single collection. You don’t want your home to look like a picture in a magazine so choose items that fit your personality and make the space yours.

Don’t overcrowd a room

You shouldn’t feel like you need to fill every open space in a room, it’s good if there’s some room to move around. Your eyes also need to rest and if there’s something going on in every spot in every room, it will look cluttered. Remember that less really is more.

Do use colors and patterns

Bright colors and slightly out there patterns will improve your mood and make your home look lived in so don’t be afraid to get a little crazy with colors and patterns.

Don’t go crazy with the pillows

An accent pillow here or there can be the perfect finishing touch that a room needs. However, too many homeowners think of pillows as their fallback for every open space in a room. You don’t want to be constantly moving pillows around in order to sit or lay down only to have to return all the pillows when you get up so exercise some restraint when buying pillows for your home.

Do check with your landlord

If you’re renting an apartment, it’s always a good idea to check with the landlord before putting holes in the wall or painting a room. Most landlords are okay with a few nails in the walls but if you’re mounting a television or shelves that require drywall anchors you may not get your deposit back when you move out. Most landlords won’t allow you to paint the walls but if they do you’ll be expected to repaint it before you leave so it’s probably better to add color to your rooms in other ways.

Don’t be afraid to splurge

You don’t want to be cheap and buy inexpensive furniture or décor items that won’t last more than a couple years. It’s better to save up, spend a little more, and accumulate things slowly do that you’ll have high quality belongings that will last.
