While working on home decoration or home improvement, mistakes are quite common. People often buy an oversized sofa or hang the light too low. These mistakes are common with DIY projects.
Hanging Wall Paintings
One of the most common interior design mistakes happens with wall hangings and pictures. People make mistakes by choosing oversized or undersized pictures for their rooms. Some homeowners choose more than one small painting to hang on a small wall to fill up that space. Our experts recommend a larger piece which brings more visual texture and interest than in a smaller painting. You just need to maintain the alignment, and everything will be perfect within a few minutes.
Try to avoid installing only one type of lighting in a room when you wish to get something more efficient and bespoke. Instead of having overhead lighting only, you should try to have different types of lights all over the room. Have a corner lamp, a table lamp, floor lights as well as a zone-specific ceiling-mounted fixture to match your requirements. Calling out an expert to fix the lighting, and your problem will be solved within the shortest possible time.
Having Wrong Curtains
It is a common mistake that often homeowners make while decorating their rooms. They buy the wrong curtains for a room. If you have made a similar mistake, you can change them anytime you want. Shop some beautiful curtains available online and replace them with the existing ones. You can take the advice from top interior designers to get a clear idea about this.
Choosing the Rugs

If you have made such an unintentional mistake, ask your interior designer about a quick remedy.
