Avoid basic mistakes while decorating your house

When starting a new project with your partner, moving to a new place or redecorating your long term home, it´s quite common to commit mistakes during the decorations process. Even though some of them might be of no importance, there are others that we should avoid, since they could turn into a long term problem.

A correct and suitable planification is essential so that you don´t put yourself in this situation. Below we will name a few basic rules:


Light, colors and shapes

Although these are basic and easy concepts, many people don’t put enough attention on them, which might turn into mistakes that will affect you on the long term. The most crucial one is not keeping in mind if you future home has natural light, or where it falls and during which times of the day, so that you can distribute the spaces accordingly.

It´s essential to know each corner of the house so that you can get the most out of it and avoid costly changes in the future.

On the other hand, the colors of the walls and the shapes of the rooms is another important factor. You should try to avoid falling into impulse when choosing the color scheme of your home, going for more neutral tones that doesn´t tire you or go out of fashion. When it comes to shapes, it´s very important to calculate the right measures so that the furniture fits correctly.


A mix of styles

Nowadays, there are many decorative styles to choose between from all over the world, which makes it more difficult to make up your mind. The result might be a disaster: a home with various incompatible styles living together in the same space.

Ideally, we should decorate our home following only one, maximum two, styles. Even though some styles are a little more flexible, you shouldn´t exaggerate.


Plants for sure, but avoid artificial.

Plants are a quite new form of decoration, or at least the use of plants in most of the spaces in your home. Natural plants give oxygen, color and it can even turn into a small hobby. 

However, some people prefer artificial plants because of lack of time, something that a priori isn´t much of an inconvenience. The problem is when we go too far, since they accumulate dust, some might look really artificial and it can be quiet dull.

That´s why it´s recommended to make use of seasonal flowers and plants, offering dynamism and changing tones to your home.
