we are going to talk about the six different mistakes. You guys are probably making
in your home. You didn’t even know it and I’m going to show you how to fix it and
how to get out of those little rats and make your home look beautiful and amazing.
worry though. I have been a victim to these mistakes as well. But you live and you
learn I’m going to give you some quick fix tips and hopefully you guys will to do
that in a weekend or I don’t know a couple weekends. It’ll be fun and exciting and
you’ll be super happy with how it turns out in the end today. I like I said, I’m
going to give you six different tips, but I do have a total of 6 mistakes that we
make around our house when it comes to decorating.
Hanging Curtains Way Too Low
the first mistake that people make in their homes, if you guys know me and you’ve
been reading my posts, you can probably guess this one use curtains. We added curtains,
you know that I love curtains. We added curtain I suggest using curtains the first
mistake that people make is they hang the curtains way too low. They do not hang
their curtains close to the ceiling. They hang them close to the window, which makes
the whole house feel like it’s like squatted on or like push down or just small
and that’s not the vibe you want when people walk into your home. You want your
eyes to go up and you also want to feel like you’re kind of elongated the space
and I also encourage you guys to try to go and lean towards a fabric that isn’t
doing more the white or maybe like a tan or something. That’s a little bit more
easily matchable and kind of can transition with your furniture or your pillows
or whatever room you’re working on. I actually found my curtains from Ikea. They
have I think two different sizes. I got the tallest size the longest option gave
me like six inches or something additional maybe five inches. And basically it’s
just a way for you to hem your curtains without having to sew them and you want
them to lightly dust the ground. You don’t want them to puddle. Hopefully that’ll
help you guys put your rods about 2 inches away from the ceiling get your curtains
on there and have them touch the ground and that’s a really easy way to make a drastic
improvement in your space.
Measure Your Space
there the second mistake that people often make is they do not measure their space
before they purchase before they go to shop. So what I always recommend you guys
have heard me say this is whether you make a floor plan like draw out a floor plan
before you go shopping or if you just want to go. Okay. I know that the dining table
is going here, and I know that I have 65 inches to fill write that down like in
the notes on your phone that way when you’re out shopping and you see a great deal.
Dining table you can have your measuring tape in your purse and you can measure
the size and the width of the dining table and then you know, oh, yeah, this would
totally fit and it’s on sale so I should get it you want to make sure your furniture
is proportional and the best way to do that is to make your measurements before
you go shop and shop wisely the third mistake you guys might be making in your home
is you may have picked the wrong rug size for the space.
with curtains, you know, you want to elongate the curtains with the wrong size Rug.
If you pick too small of a rug, it can actually make your space feel a little bit
dwarfed in a little bit scrunched together as opposed to widening out the space
and allowing the room to feel a little bit larger specifically within like a living
room space. You want to make sure that your rug goes at least halfway under the
furniture. You want the rug if you were to imagine a big rectangle it would fill
in that open space.
have to keep going past the length of the furniture doesn’t have to go completely
underneath the furniture unless you have a ginormous space that doesn’t necessarily
look bad, but you definitely do not want to just get a rug that only fills in the
open L shaped area.
make sense. Go to the Limit Journal. We’ve got tons of tips on rug placement Rug
sizes just specifically for each room. So dining room living room and bedroom options
where to put a rug. If you have side tables all that stuff, we’ve got lots of tips
and lots of things for you guys to use as references and resources to help you guys.
Make sure you get this one right because this is important as you guys have heard
me say a rug really grounds of space it helps open up walkways. So if you are in
a smaller area, it’s going to really help direct the path of traffic and it just
really defines the space. I really utilize drugs to Define. Okay, this is the living
room and this is the office and here’s the dining room and it kind of separates
it in a way without having walls.
Hanging Art Pieces Too High
your living area the fourth common mistake that you might be making around. Your
house is hanging your art too high. So in theory your art when you hang it should
be close to your eye level. If you live in a really large house. You probably should
adjust this to keep the scale of the space. You can bump it up a few inches, but
general you want to try to make sure that the center of your art pieces are about
I level which is around 60 inches or so. Obviously, this is subjective depending
on how tall you are and depending on how big your spaces but it’s kind of like a
good generalized rule of thumb another great way to make sure that things are kind
of at the right height. If you have a large piece of art or a large mirror I try
to make sure if it’s near a window or a door frame that the height of the door frame
and the height of the art are somewhat similar give or take a few inches the Need
additional help when it comes to Hanging art how to hang it in vertical spaces horizontal
spaces awkward hallways.
Bring Your Furniture Away From The
a blog post that I put up on the Block this week where I give you a ten foolproof
hacks on how to hang art all around your home. The next common mistake people make
is they put all of their Furniture up against the walls and it’s like they’re afraid
to be anywhere but backed up against the wall instead of pushing everything up against
the walls. You wanted to feel lively and conversational.
your furniture away from those walls setting them up in different angled areas will
again allow for a better community feeling better conversation areas, and it doesn’t
make the space feel really awkwardly broken up and just like starkly open you want
it to feel cozy you want to bring stuff in but you want Do in a way that allows
for convenient walkways that doesn’t block doors and there’s kind of a strategy
behind doing that. If you check out the live at Journal we’ve got lots of information
and resources on how to do that effectively and how to do that the right way. So
click below and check it out the sixth and last common mistake that people make
around their homes is they go to furniture stores and they buy a furniture set and
that’s what they put into their bedrooms or into their home’s there’s nothing inherently
wrong. Wrong with the furniture set but instead of just buying the set all at once
you want your home to feel kind of curated and that it actually reflects your personal
Make The Colors Connected
kind of fun to add in a dining table. That’s kind of maybe one style and a bookcase
that kind of maybe is another style making sure that the colors are connected and
there are some similar repeating attributes of them. That way it’s not drastically
different. Just make sure that you have some things that speak to each other because
you wanted you feel cohesive, but you don’t want it to feel so matchy matchy that
it’s not unique if that makes sense. So skip the bedroom sets or the furniture sets
and go for something a little bit more diverse unique and fabulous.
you guys those are the six common mistakes that we make around our home and again,
don’t worry if you feel like oh my gosh, I have all of these around my house. I
have been there. So hopefully these things will help you become aware of them tackle
them as you have time, and if you want to know additional mistakes, you might be
making around your place and you Want to know the answers on a how to fix them and
make it look better.
