It’s easy to go overboard when decorating your Columbus GA new home and end up with a messy, cluttered looking space. Here are some tips on how to avoid common decorating mistakes, so your home can look chic and stylish instead.

Color Me Simple – One surefire way to make a home look cluttered is to decorate it with too many colors. Focus on one or two hues, combined with neutral colors to give your home a cohesive, relaxed look. Create a gorgeous look by using neutral colors on the walls, rug, window coverings and furnishings and then bring in a pop of color with accessories like throw pillows.

Easy Does it – When using accent pillows on a sofa or bed, don’t go overboard. Two pillows will suffice. Any more than that and you have a recipe for clutter.

Furniture Placement Matters – Placing all of your furniture against the walls only makes the space look cluttered and messy. Instead, gather your furniture in the center of the room. Grouping chairs around a coffee table creates the perfect atmosphere for intimate conversations.

Less is More – Displaying too many décor accessories on a table will only make your room look cluttered. Focus instead on one or two groupings of items you love and are functional, such as a small dish for storing car keys and sunglasses. If you have a few small items to display, place them in a jar or bowl and stack them on top of two or three books for a purposeful look.

Artful Decoration – Give some thought before displaying art on your walls. When pictures and art are hung haphazardly, the room looks chaotic. Instead, group pictures in a gallery wall arrangement to make your space look organized and balanced.
