After all that, home owners tend to do some mistakes with designing the interiors and fail to benefit from this art form.

Here are some of common interior design mistakes we do make –

No regard for a messy appearance

We're a people with a materialist approach to life. We do not hesitate in buying gadgets and items hiring them to herald to the world our arrival. Every opportunity prods us to stuff the house with more accessories and items. This would be acceptable if you had a big and spacious house but it can clear clutter and a messy appearance when there is space constraint. With items fitted and strewn here and there, we lose the living space and it gives us an unorganized feeling. So, the focus should be on buying only the items that are essential and leaving the rest right there at the shop.

Not giving custom furniture a go

Most of us get it bang wrong in choosing the furniture and end up spoiling the aesthetical charms of the interior. We generally buy the item even without mapping out the spaces; so we either end up having too large or too small for use. We should understand that custom is a concept to suit spaces perfectly. So, we can go with custom furniture, choose own design, pattern and color and style with furniture and help with space management. Plus, we can enhance functional and visual appeal of the areas by getting created furniture as per own specifications.

Selection of wrong color coordination

Most home owners trip on the all-important from selecting the right colors for the interiors. They mess up the whole color scheme affair and are left with an unimpressive design for the interior. They get it all wrong with the shades and tins for the wall paints and do not get them in sync with the furniture and fabrics. Similarly, they fail to choose the color matching with the theme and mood of spaces and reflecting the sensibility of the habitants. They should look to add different contrasts in the color scheme to get the right hues and effect for the interior.

Unable to harness the power of lighting

One of the biggest drawbacks with do-it-approach is failing to harness the power of lightning. The dazzle and glow of light can make or break the visual appeal of interiors of any dimension and getting it all wrong is sure to leave you with a bad design for the interior. The excitement of the room is large dependent on the light and you just can not get it wrong. The lighting should gel well with the theme and spirit of every individual rule to help create positive vibe and inspired atmosphere in the home. So, get the lighting right and enhance the visual appeal of the interior.
