Serious Home Decor Flaws You Shouldn’t Ignore


When there’s a flaw in your home decor, something can seem a little ‘off’. You might not be able to pinpoint exactly what it is, but something is definitely not right. Here, you’ll find some of the most serious, and most common home decor flaws that you shouldn’t ignore.

Read through then see if you can find any of them in your home:

Buying Furniture That’s Exactly The Same Height

In any home, it’s a good idea to play with height. Whether you’re looking at sofas, chairs, tables, plants – whatever it may be, looking at things that are different heights is more interesting. If you choose furniture that’s exactly the same height, for instance, all of your chairs, things can look a little stunted and boring.

Choosing The Wrong Size Accessories

Your accessories need to be the right size if your home decor is going to look amazing, too. Choosing the wrong size will either make your home look too cluttered, or not full enough. You need to know how to get the balance just right.

Many people make the mistake of choosing small accessories only for a small room, but this can actually look strange. In some cases, choosing a large accessory can help to fill up the space better and be a more effective use of it.

Bear in mind that choosing lots of small accessories can also create lots of visual clutter, and that won’t look great no matter how beautiful the accessories are.

Hanging Art In The Wrong Place

Hanging art too high/low will look terrible too. Art is supposed to lift you up. You probably spend a lot of time choosing it/sourcing it. Make sure you take the time to put it in the right place! You can test it out by using a piece of paper or card the same size and tacking it on the wall in the spot you’re considering.

Following Design Trends

Following design trends is unoriginal. You don’t want your home to look like it came out of a magazine. You want it to look personal to you, and to suit your personality. If you truly love something and you know the novelty won’t wear off, then by all means, do it.

Not Measuring A Room

Measuring a room not once, but multiple times to make sure your measurements are correct is a must. This way, you’ll have a better idea of where you’re going to put certain elements, and can even use apps and software to help you lay it out and design it too. Of course, if you’re working with an A+ Construction Pro then you won’t need those – it’s just something to bear in mind.

Underestimating The Importance Of Greenery

Greenery is super important and shouldn’t be thought of after all is said and done. Plan it in the beginning and choose 3-5 plants that could work well and help add texture.

Don’t be afraid to keep it interesting by getting creative with various heights.

  1. Art does throw a room off if it’s in the wrong spot. The same thing for photos. I like to have both and am carefeul where I put them.

  2. My mom was so good at home decor. She would always come to my place and tell me to move this there and that there and the room would be totally transformed. I was so envious of this talent.

  3. I learned the hard way a couple of times while still renting, ordering furniture that wouldn’t fit – luckily they let me cancel, and a landlady who let me have a carpenter remove the wood over a doorway to get a couch in, but then wouldn’t let me do the same to get it out, very expensive white leather set she wanted for herself, so I had to sue her, and won. Now the first thing I do is measure, measure, measure.
