We all have the habit of placing our furniture against the wall. It is because the furniture in the old times used to be dull and unfinished. It used to look ugly. But this is not true anymore.
In modern days, the backs of furniture are as beautiful as the fronts. So let’s break the stereotype and try something new to give your home interior a brand new look. Place your sofa in the middle. You don’t have to place it against the wall as usual.
Large-scale furniture is excellent at demarcating spaces. By doing this, you will be surprised to see the amount of space you actually have after modifying your furniture placement.
2. Hanging Curtains All Wrong

A gorgeous and lavish room with inappropriately hung curtains appears like a beautiful lady wearing bad clothes. It makes everything appear cheap and jarred, and makes occupants feel uncomfortable and uninviting.
That’s why make sure you hang your curtains right. It should not be hung too high or too low. Keep it less than an inch above the floor so that they hang totally straight and float gloriously.
3. Too Many Decoration Pieces

People often place too many decorative items in their rooms, which makes it appear too occupied and uncomfortable.
Thus, avoid this mistake and choose unique, statement-making pieces only. Use artwork, fabric, lighting décor thoughtfully. Indoor plants are high in trends when it comes to home décor.

Rugs may not appear a major item to you, but the truth it the size and look of rugs on your flooring truly make a huge difference. Ideally, if you choose the larger rugs, especially if you’re between sizes, it will be the extra expense every time.
Make sure the rugs you choose are proportional to your space and place it to echo the room’s dimensions.

Placing all furniture that you loved and shopped in your living room just because it is lavish and stylish is sure to block the path for occupants and guests. It feels inconvenient and uninviting.
Thus, make sure you choose and place your furniture in all rooms thoughtfully while providing free walking space. Maintain a comfortable distance between all furniture pieces.
