It doesn’t matter how smart and sophisticated the decor and design of your home is if it’s constantly covered by a layer of clutter. Clutter clogs up the flow of a room more than anything and automatically makes any design choices seem less intentional.
The good news is that clutter is a treatable issue – here are 12 things professional organisers declutter every day.
There are a lot of ways that lighting can influence the look and feel of a room. Bright, white lighting is a quick way to make a room feel washed out and makes any potentially tacky design decisions stand out even more. Dim, minimal lighting, on the other hand, can can also pretty quickly make a man-cave feel a bit too much like an actual cave. You’ll be surprised how much the mood of a room can change if you put some thought into your lighting by switching up fixtures and bulb styles.
Too much DIY furniture
A handmade end table is a great conversation starter, but it doesn’t mean there can’t be too much of a good DIY thing. When the other pieces of furniture your charming end table compliments so nicely are also handmade, it’s time to take a step back. A whole room full of DIY furniture can look less like a design choice, and more like you’ve filled your living room with a collection of repurposed junk.
