9 Common Interior Design Mistakes To Avoid, According To Experts

A beautiful design is important, but functionality should not be overlooked. Ensure that the layout and furniture arrangement suit the intended use of the space.

Ignoring Functionality

Lighting is crucial to home design. Insufficient illumination can ruin a room's vibe. For good lighting, use ambient, task, and accent lighting.

Overlooking Lighting

Furniture and decor should be appropriately scaled to the size of the room. Oversized or undersized pieces can disrupt the balance of the space.

Scale and Proportion

 The appropriate color balance is vital. Too much colour can be overwhelming, while too little can be dreary. Mind the color scheme and accents.


Texture gives a room depth and visual intrigue. Lack of texture can make a room feel dull. Use different textures in fabrics, furniture, and decor.

Importance of Texture

Overstuffed furniture and dcor may make a room appear crowded and disorganized. Create a more comfortable environment with simplicity and open spaces.

Cluttered Spaces

 Rushing design can result in bad decisions. Before making large purchases or adjustments, prepare and visualize the design.

Inadequate Planning

Harmonious design requires room flow. Make sure furniture is organized and the house flows smoothly.

Flow of the Space

While following design trends can be inspiring, it's important to infuse your personal style into the space. Your home should reflect your personality and preferences.
