Everybody has a cleaning routine that perfectly fits in with their lifestyle and keeps the home in a good shape. If despite that your home still looks not as clean as it's expected, do you know where the problem is? You can't figure it out? Think from this angle - are your home decor arrangements, making your home look messier that it is. Peruse this list to check if you need to make any decor adjustments so that your work won't go to waste.
1. Inappropriate Leaning And Stacking
We all love books, but we should be very careful when it comes to decorating. Usually, a few casual stacks of books look rad, but if they are not compatible with the room's style, they will make it feel off. Interior designers recommend to make a good estimate of the decoration and to remove the stacks, leaning elements and other piles out of the room. Then step back and see if those arrangements have made your room better. If so, you might want to reevaluate. Also, do you realize how much time you should set aside to clean them? Most probably, cleaning the house will turn into the most tedious and annoying task for you.
2. Stuffed Tabletop Vignettes
The very busy, bursting with stuff vignettes can give the room a feeling of overload and messiness. So try to keep stuff like coffee tables and the credenzas clean and not stuffed in order to look more stylish and tidy. Just think this way - what will be if you have many small, casually arranged objects on the table, but at different sizes, shapes and heights? It will feel like you've forgotten to pick them up. So catch the right balance.
3. Cluttered Spaces
Not just the tabletop vignettes can be stuffed. Rooms can be full of too many small objects as well, such as lots of side chairs, pictures, pillows, ottomans, and more. Moreover, it may look like everything is in "order", but actually not to be. That's why try to get rid of the unnecessary objects, make the room more breathable and spacious. For example, if you are from those people who are in love with the bohemian style decoration and have thrown pillows all over the room. Actually, if they are pointing in different directions despite your efforts to put them in order, consider reducing their quantity.
4. Stuff In Open Shelves
Most people use open shelving for splurging on their ceramic collection. Actually, those furnishings work very well in the kitchen or the bathroom, but if you insist on using them in the living room, then you should think carefully. What you can do in order to prevent the messy look of the room is to tack your items in beautiful boxes or baskets which to be placed in the open shelves. That way, the room will look tidy, neat and mod.
5. Inappropriate Hook Placements
Everybody loves hooks! They are the easiest way to makeover unused wall space. There is only one danger - to overload the hooks, especially if they are in a place that can be seen from another room. The view will be a little bit unpleasant. The solution - relocate your hooks to a more hidden place and try not to overload them in order to look not so messy.
6. Weird Patterns & Wrong Materials
Before buying new materials or patterns, scrutinize them carefully. Ask yourself these questions: "Does this textile pattern look like it's covered in dirt?", "Does this shiny flooring make it look like it's always dusty?" and etc. They will help you make the right decisions.
