If you are planning to relocate to a house for rent anytime soon, here are some of the most common newbie designer mistakes that you must avoid.
Many rookie designers think that overhead lighting is the only type of lighting that they can use. Because of this, you would commonly see houses that feature the repulsive golden and layered lighting that such fixture provide. As a rule of thumb, rooms must have at least three types of light sources. In addition to that, you must also vary the strength and height of the lighting fixtures in order to make your living space look more elegant and feel more inviting. This trick can make even the cheapest lighting seem a lot more luxurious.
Not ergonomic furniture
A lot of home owners position their sofa or living room chairs either in a corner or on a wall. They do this because it has been the norm in the interior designing world, or so they thought. When arranging the layout of your living space, it is recommended that you take into consideration the different types of activities that you plan to do in that space. Think of how you do those activities in the room then arrange the furniture accordingly.
One of your go-to interior design reference would surely be furniture catalogs. After all, they have some of the most amazing furniture layouts, right? There is nothing wrong in falling in love with a certain piece of furniture but pining after the entire layout is absurd. For your information, you will waste serious amount of money when you go after all the pieces of furniture in the catalogue. The key here is to mix and match. Buy some of the furniture featured in the catalogue then mix it with other more affordable pieces.
Wrong Artwork Positioning
When it comes to decorating with artworks, you should consider more than the color or the design of the artwork– you should also think about the height at which it should be hung. Your goal should be to hang it at eye level.
Keep the things mentioned above in mind when decorating and designing your new house for rent. By avoiding these mistakes, you will be one step closer in building a living space that ill fit both your lifestyle and your personal style.
