Styling your home isn’t always easy, and if you’re lacking in knowledge when it comes to interior design, you could be making some mistakes.

Let’s take a look at three decor blunders that you need to avoid in order to create your ideal home.
1. Skimping on the finer details
While it’s vital to ensure that your home is filled with essential pieces of furniture, it’s just as important to pay close attention to the finer details too.
For example, soft furnishings can help tie just about any room together, so you may want to focus on these home accessories first.
You could keep the room neutral and add a splash of colour using cushions and curtains as accents
Whether you decide to swap your shabby looking window dressings for some stunning eyelet curtains or ditch your drab duvet cover for a luxuriously soft and stylish bed linen set, you should find that there are a whole host of high-quality accessories available that can help improve the look and feel of each room.
With so much choice available, there is no reason why you should skimp when it comes to these finishing touches.
2.Failing to think about arrangement
Regardless of whether it’s your bedroom or kitchen, failing to think about how the room is arranged could be seriously letting your home down.
Every room in your property has a different use, so it’s important to make sure that the way in which you organize each space is fit for its individual purpose.
For example, it’s likely that your living area is where you like to relax and occasionally entertain guests.
Add your personality with some quirky accessories
With that in mind, you could position your sofas to create a communal seating area, and perhaps place a coffee table in the center and add a couple of side tables for extra convenience.
No matter which room you are arranging, it pays to give careful thought to how you can make the space as comfortable and practical as possible.
3. Having too much on display
From vases and photo frames to ornaments and candle holders, the chances are there are a whole array of home accessories that you want to show off.
However, having too much on display could be making your home appear cluttered and chaotic, creating a disorderly and distracting vibe.
Too much clutter creates a discordant atmosphere
It’s important to remember that less is more when it comes to trinkets and knick-knacks. To solve this issue, you could simply remove a few items, keeping your favourite pieces in prominent and visible places.
If you’re guilty of making any of these interior design mistakes, taking this advice on board should enable you to create the stylish home you’ve always wanted.
