You don’t pay attention to the size and height of existing decor

One of the biggest mistakes that people make when redecorating their homes is not taking into consideration the size and height of a piece of furniture. According to interior designers, the scale is the key element when it comes to redecoration. 

“When you get the scale wrong with furniture or even moldings, most of the time it can make you feel like something is seriously off. It can definitely cheapen a space,” says interior designer, Bobby Berk.

So, before you buy a new piece of furniture you should make sure that it will fit perfectly in a certain space. “Make sure you consider the scale of all of the elements in a room and how they relate to each other, from rug size to art to the scale of furniture and the circulation around it,” Berk said.
