We all like to redecorate our houses so that we can feel better, or even feel like we bought a whole new one. However, people always make mistakes when trying to redecorate. This is why we have gathered some designers’ secrets on how to achieve the best home décor.

Do Not Cross the Line

If you live near the ocean, for example, do not fill your living room with seashells. Moreover, when you do that, you won’t be embarrassed with your house in 10 years.

Mix and Match

Group the Artworks

Hanging framed artworks together makes a long lasting effect with a sense of sophistication. “By hanging six prints in a grid over the family room sofa, I got the impact of a much larger piece of art” said the designer Meg Braff.

Unify Tiny Spaces

If your bedroom is small, try to wrap your bed using the same printed fabric that you use for your wallpaper. This is how you don’t vide it visually so that it looks bigger.

Use Quite Neutrals

This is how you make your furniture blend with your walls or carpets, which leads to a wider space look. However, try to use a pop color such as white for the room not to look too bland.

Side Tables are a Plus

Make sure you put a small side table next to every sofa. This technique makes the room more intimate. If intimacy is what you are looking for, this idea will make you want to curl up and watch a movie with your loved one while sipping a cup of coffee.
