Although there is no hard and fast rule one should follow while decorating one’s home but there are always some mistakes that can give your decoration a messy look. Here are some points which you should avoid when you decorate your home to make your home more stylish and exclusive.

1. Deciding the paint color

Painting the walls is the most important step in decoration of your home. Choosing a committed color scheme can give a boring look to the walls. Choose a paint color according to the fabric accessories like rugs, pillows and furniture. This can also make easy for you to pick the color and will give a lively look to the walls.

2. Choosing too small rugs

Simple floors without tossing rugs sometimes don’t look good but a small rug in the center of the room makes the looks weaker. Either avoid the rugs if the floor is not that simple or if you choose to go with the rugs, then select a larger one. It may seem expensive but at least select the length so that the front legs of your furniture can fit on to the rug. (The rug should touch all the furniture).

4. Don’t make everything too bold

Decorating an area with everything too bold makes it look heavier. If you have some heavy items like curtains or furniture, then use light rugs, wall hangings and fabrics to make the flavor sing. Everything too bold doesn’t catch the eyes. To make your home captivating, keep the entire palette into the mind rather than only the face of that area.

5. Avoid hanging too many small frames

Choosing larger artwork or display rather than hanging too many small frames is wiser and more practical. Hanging a clutter of small frames sometimes gives a messy look to your space.
