Common mistakes in interior design

Interior design is not something you wake up one day and begin to do. It involves a lot of planning, budgeting, and realignment of a few things to achieve the aesthetics intended. It’s such a critical undertaking and that is why many people make mistakes.

These are some of the mistakes that you could make in doing interior design and how to avoid them

Having no plan

 Surprisingly, many people begin their design work without a plan. This has led to many disappointments and something you must avoid. Do some research online get a color palette that you like and check out for some patterns and styles that would get your heart racing. Get fabrics, colors and bring them on a mood board. Play around with the mixes until you achieve a desirable look. Ensure the mood board is cohesive, visually exciting and balanced.

Choosing paint before other fixtures

Imagine having to get furniture and other things that are in tandem with the color of the wall. It can be a daunting task and ultimately, you may not be able to match everything. Get the furniture in place and every other thing that you need. Depending on the colors you’ve chosen, it would be easy to get a color for the walls and the ceiling.

Ignoring dimensions

Having the exact dimensions for the entire space guides you in purchasing fixtures that are fitting and therefore avoid wastage. This is a mistake commonly done by nonprofessionals- They want to buy everything even without caring for the available space and end up making purchases most of which turn obsolete. Let a retail space design professional do the work for you and this would save you time and money.

You’ll achieve so many things by engaging a professional interior designer. It involves some cost though, but it’s an investment that worthwhile and would give you value for money.
