Good day people! Are you feeling enthusiastic about interior design topics? Today I have something interesting for you. When it comes to arranging your home, there are too many rules to follow. Feeling like they limit you? Check which are the most common interior design myths!
Rules are made for breaking. The interior design world allows you to think outside of the box, and use your own creativity. You should find the thing that works for you and makes you happy. Read on and find out more about the rules that were made to be broken!
This is the old fashioned way to design your home. If you really want to do it like your grandma, then go for it. Having same walls and furniture is not a thing anymore. You are free to mix and match different styles, colors and patterns. As long as they have something in common that will connect them. And no, we are not talking about randomly thrown a few items. Match by style or color family.
Hint: Your sofa and ottomans does not necessarily have to be the same color. Try a fun combo!
You must follow certain rules
They say that if you want to have a well designed home, you should follow strict rules. But, I will confirm you that this is not true. You are free to experiment and find the thing that works for you. Brake the rules if it is going to look awesome.
White walls for small rooms
We have all heard that if you want to make small rooms appear big , white walls are a must. If they look boring and cold to you, you are free to abandon this rule. White is only about the visual enlargement. Blue and green can have the same effect, but look better then then ordinary white.
Furniture against the walls
This is one common practice that does not have to mean that this is your only choice. You have two options:placing furniture against the walls, or in the center of the room. And the second one looks better. Why? Because in this way you accentuate the function of the room. For example, if your sofa is placed in the center this brings a feeling of togetherness. You are free to do this, without being afraid that it will create a lack of space.
