With so many do's and don'ts and how to's when it comes to furniture, you'd think we'd have our stuff figured out when it comes to avoiding making mistakes where furnitureis concerned. But, it would seem that, no matter how much information is out there, we still find ourselves making these simple mistakes. Do you or anyone you know make any of the mistakes below?
Too much furniture- it is one thing to accessorize and accentuate a space, but, when it comes to furniture, there is such a thing as too much. Adding way too many pieces of furniturein a room can make it feel overcrowded and untidy, even when it’s clean. One way to determine if you have too much furnitureis if the space between your furniturepieces is less than 400cm or more.
Putting furnitureagainst the wall - another mistake we often commit is putting furnitureagainst the wall. Try to leave space between your furniturepieces and the wall, this makes theroomfeel airy and well thought out. Putting furnitureagainst walls makes the roomlook small.
Awkward furnitureheight - be sure your dining room tables and chairs have a cohesive height, the same goes for your bedand pedestals. Nothing is more awkward looking than a bedthat's too high or too low for pedestals, or chairs whose height won't allow comfortable leg roombetween you and the table. A dining room suite or bedroom suite solves this as height has been taken into consideration in their design.
Ignoring flow - you should always be mindful of how people will navigate a space when decorating. You don't want to put furniturepieces in places that block movement or have people having to take the long way around the furnitureto move around the room.
The most important thing to keep in mind always is to create a space that feels open, and is functional, without feeling like you're compromising on your tastes. However, some things are a complete no-no.
