10 common interior design mistakes

“Your Home should tell the story of who you are, and be a Collection of what you Love.” But most of the people make the most common mistakes that lead to a complicated and confusing space. One should always focus on being clear in the head about one thing and that is to be real and clear about your taste and bring out the most in your space. Now, lets talk about the most common interior mistakes that are made by most people.

A 2D floor plan provides a simple and clean overview of the s[ace to be designed. It is one of the most useful and most important tools that can be used when constructing a new house or when renovating any old space. Sometimes, mostly in old constructed spaces, people don't have the floor plans. But it is totally possible to measure each and every corner of the house accurately. Ask your interior designer to do this for you. With proper measurements and floor plan, One can easily plan the walls, circulation and the room layout of any house. They are also extremely important in figuring out furniture & furnishing layouts and arrangement.

3D modeling has changed the way we design; for the better. Not only does 3D modeling help the designers and the customer visualize space requirements, but also improves design efficiency and accuracy. A 3D design enables you and your designer to make a list of things you will need to complete the project and keep it with you when shopping. This will help you avoid impulse purchases that don’t fit your aesthetic.


The most important ingredient in any relationship is trust. I’m not suggesting blind trust, but I am making the point that you need to let them take the lead. A designer should push you out of your design comfort zone, and ask you to take a risk or two. If they’re not suggesting ideas that surprise you or excite you and sometimes even contradict you, then you probably could have done the job yourself. It is really important that you let the specialists do their job.

And for obvious reasons, hiring interior design services will help you avoid any kind of costly mistakes, and thereby help you save your money and increase the value of your space.


The third most common mistake is that many people don't plan how much money they have available and are comfortable spending on their interior design project. Don't forget to ask your interior designer to make a list for you about what you need and how much it will cost you. Also, it is important to keep a reasonable amount of buffer funds. The expenditure list is called a BOQ (Bill of quantity). This is a list of everything you want to do in your home. While you may not realistically be able to do everything on the list in a 100% accurate manner, it still gives you a place to start and of course you have those buffer funds!
