Avoiding Common Design Mistakes – Part I

bILWhen it comes to designing and decorating your new home or just giving your home a new look the task can seem a bit daunting. There are endless resources on what to do and what not to do.

You can mix and match between brands to achieve a completely one-pf-a-kind look or choose one look from one brand to decorate your home. Either way it will turn out inspiring and just right.

The Flexsteel brand suggests there are a number of common mistakes made by home decorators that can be easily avoided in order to achieve just the right look. First of all, they tackle the subject of light and color. Many people shy away from color when choosing furniture. However, choosing a brighter color piece of furniture, or a bolder color, you can easily achieve a high accented look without being too overbearing. It is a great way to add just a splash of boldness to the palate of your home.

In light of, well, light, sometimes less is more. There’s nothing a little more unnerving to sit on an extremely comfortable and inviting piece of furniture only to realize you’re sitting right next to the family interrogation lamp that is letting of heat for up to five feet away. Keep lighting soft to create a much cozier home. Leave the bigger lights for the bigger rooms. The best lighting is often achieved from lamps and floor lighting rather than from overhead lighting. When in doubt, simply use an accent lamp.
