ADD A FOCAL POINT

Creating a  focal point is very essential in an interior space. Most people do not create a focal point in the room, which makes it hard to take in the space as whole. Your mind is scattered all over the space,  to that over sized sculpture in the corner and the shining chandelier in the centre of the ceiling, or an oversized painting on the wall side of the statue.
All these things might or might not go well together, but is not appreciated as much.

It’s easy to create a focal point in a given area.  It’s basically the first thing you want them to see and admire as they enter. It could be a TV Unit, a designer chair or again a painting or a sculpture.

SELECT FABRICS AND TEXTILES BEFORE PAINTING

People often make the mistake of decide on wall paints instead of fabrics and textile s. This leads to a lot of hassle, because it is more difficult to find a matching fabric that goes with a particular shade of paint than to do it the other way round.
It is ideal to first look through samples of fabrics for rugs, carpets, pillows and sofas etc and then decide on a shade of paint that best compliments them.

ART

Almost everybody like hanging  some form of art on their walls.
Although the common mistake that people make is either overcrowding the wall, or placing artworks to gether  that do not compliment each other, in respect to their styles, size , scale, texture or form.
In order to avoid this mistake, one must play with the numerous placement option before hammering that nail into their walls, and decide on which is the best option that goes together.

PRE-PLANNING YOUR PURCHASE AND BUDGETING

What most people do while buying furniture, fabric or materials is making it an impulsive purchase.
And because of this, maybe the pillows match the sofa, but the curtains do not complement the .pillows. Maybe the TV unit and the centre table really go well together but the dining table stands out completely.
Maybe the sofa is too oversized for the room or you realize that you really did not need that designer mirror that costed you a fortune.
In order to avoid such expensive mistakes, it is very important to plan your purchase, decide on styles and measure your room before going to shop.

SELECT FURNITURE  & MATERIALS BEFORE PAINTING.

Just like it’s better to select fabric and textile before the painting process, it’s also more appropriate and essential to select furniture and materials  before selecting the color of your wall.
The reason behind this is that there are various furniture styles, and material with different textures and patterns, which only go along with  certain shades of paint.
Hence, it would be less of a hassle if you select your furniture and materials first.
