Five most common mistakes to avoid when designing your home.

A lot goes into designing a home and we see the same mistakes repeatedly.  Here are the top 5 mistakes to avoid:

1. Poor space planning: Not properly planning the layout of the space can result in a cramped or awkwardly arranged room, making it difficult to move around or use the space effectively.

2. Ignoring the scale and proportion: Choosing furniture and decor that is either too large or too small for the room can throw off the balance and make the space feel visually unappealing or unbalanced.

3. Lack of proper lighting: Insufficient or improper lighting can make a space feel dull, gloomy, or uninviting. It’s important to incorporate a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a well-lit and visually appealing environment.

4. Choosing the wrong color scheme: Selecting the wrong colors for walls, furniture, and accessories can result in a space that feels unbalanced, overwhelming, or visually unappealing. It’s important to consider the overall mood and atmosphere you want to create and choose colors accordingly.

5. Neglecting the importance of comfort: Prioritizing aesthetics over comfort can result in a space that looks great but is not practical or comfortable to live in. It’s important to strike a balance between style and functionality, ensuring that the space is both visually pleasing and comfortable to use.
