Fixing Common Decorating Mistakes

Some people seem to have a natural eye for decorating a home, and others, well, do not. If you feel like something in your home feels off, it might be due to one of these made decorating mistakes.

Mistake #1 - Poor choice of curtains

We can guarantee you won’t have this problem working with Budget Blinds. Maybe you tried the DIY method and it’s not looking how you imagined. Curtains fill wall space, make ceilings appear taller, and add personality to the room. If you love the curtains, you may have placed them wrong - the hardware hangs too low or the panels don’t fit the windows. If this is the case, give us a call and we’d be happy to help get you the curtains you were dreaming of.


Mistake #2 - Not enough natural light

Lighting is the type of thing where you might not notice when it’s done well, but you notice when it is lacking. As a general rule, never rely on overhead lighting. Adding floor lamps and table lamps can help, but nothing beats natural light. Blackout curtains from Budget Blinds are a solution for rooms that need both light and dark options, like a bedroom.

Mistake #3 - Improper furniture placement

When furniture is too far apart, it takes some of the coziness away from the room. While you want enough space to easily walk throughout the room, you need less space than what you think. Tables should be within reaching distance of chairs. If furniture was spread out to fill empty space, try adding an accent table on the wall with plants, lamps, or photos.
