7 Surprising Things That Make Your Home Look Cheap
We can’t all be interior designers, but did you know that certain style choices can leave your home looking rather cheap? No matter where you buy your home furnishings from—whether at a discount store or even a high-end boutique—there are many do’s and some pretty obvious don'ts when it comes to decorating your home.
So Sharrah Stevens is revealing 7 things that make your home look cheap and how to fix this glaring problem as soon as possible.
The reasons why your home looks cheap may, in fact, surprise you. Typically, this issue is caused by things you never even thought of or really enjoyed about your decorating sense in the past. And that’s because interior design mistakes aren’t always so obvious to those of us actually making them, which is where professionals often come in handy.
Sharrah says the first mistake people tend to make is creating an overly cluttered look. Even if your things are nice, too many items look messy, and messy looks cheap.
Second, leaving your TV on the floor, on a table, or in a cabinet never looks as good as when it’s intentionally mounted on the wall. Some of the biggest interior design mistakes like this one can be remedied by moving the object to a new location. It’s as simple as that.
Sharrah also recommends using the correct rug sizes for each space, eliminating all fluorescent lights, and ridding yourself of those cheap boob lights builders love to put in.
The last two things that make your home look cheap, Sharrah says, are having too many matching furniture sets and having an improper furniture layout.
For a quick fix, mix, and match pieces you already own or purchase a few newer pieces and pull your furniture off the wall and into more of a conversational-friendly design.
