Hey guys, welcome back to my site. Today we are going to talk about the six different mistakes you guys are probably making in your home, and how you can fix them. I’ll also show you how to get out of those little ruts and make your home look beautiful and amazing. Don’t worry, I have been a victim to these mistakes as well but you live and you learn.


Let’s do it, okay. The first mistake that people make in their homes if you guys know me and you’ve been watching you can probably guess this one. Use the curtains we added curtains, you know that I love curtains and we added a curtain. I suggest in using certain the person a guy will make if they hang the curtains way too low, do not hang their curtains close to the ceiling, they hang them close to the window, which makes the whole house feel like it’s squatted on or pushes down or just small, and that’s not the buoyant Ole walk into your home. We want your eyes to go up, and you also wanna feel like you’re in belonging, space, and I also encourage you guys to try to go and lean towards a fabric that isn’t super busy. I recommend doing more the white or maybe like a and… Or something that’s a little bit more easily match-able. And I can transition with your furniture or your pillows or whatever room you’re working on. I actually found my curtains for my kid. They are the Vivien or me VIII something, something, something. Oh, Lincoln, below. You guys can check them out. They have, I think, two different sizes. I got the tallest size, the longest option gave me 6 inches or something additional and maybe 5 inches so I did a no. So him trick which I have a video on a line below you face can check that out and basically it’s just a way for you to have your curtains without having to show them and you want them to lightly dust the ground, you don’t want them to puddle.


Pro-Tip: You might need to hire a professional interior designer like to help you with these issues.


Hopefully, that’ll help you guys put your roads about two inches away from the ceiling, get your curtains on there and have him touch the ground. And that’s a really easy way to make a drastic improvement in your space to start the…


I ate I-E. a mistake that people often make, is they do not measure their space before they purchase before they go to the shop. So, when I always recommend you guys have heard me say this is whether you make a floor plan, draw out a floor plan before you go shopping, or if you just wanna go, Okay, I know that the dining table’s going here and I know that I have 65 inches to Phil. Write that down in the notes on your phone, all winter out shopping and you see a great deal for a dining table you can have your measuring tape in your purse and you can measure the size and the width of the dining table and then you know, “oh yeah, this would totally fit. And it’s on sale, so I should get it.


You want to make sure your furniture is proportional and the best way to do that is to make your measurements before you go shopping and shop wisely.


The third mistake you guys might be making in your home is you may have picked the wrong red size for space.


Just like with cards, you want to elongate the curtains with the Ron side rug. If you pick two small areas, it can actually make your space feel a little bit, worked in a little bit scrunched together as opposed to widening out space and allowing the room to feel a little bit larger specifically within a living room space. You wanna make sure that your rug it goes at least halfway under the furniture you want, the rug. If you were imagined a big rectangle it would fill in that open face, it doesn’t have to keep going past the length of the furniture, it doesn’t have to go completely underneath the furniture unless you have a ginormous space that doesn’t necessarily look bad, but you definitely do not want to just get a red that only fills in the open L-shaped area that doesn’t make sense. Go to the limit journal. We’ve got tons of tips on rug placement “Russes specifically for each room, so the dining room, living room, and bedroom options were to put a rug if you have side tables, all that stuff.


We’ve got lots of tips and lots of things for you guys to use as references and resources to help you guys make sure you get this one right, ’cause this is important as you guys have heard me say are really grounds a space, it helps open up Walkley. So if you are in a smaller area, it’s gonna really help direct the path of traffic, and it just really define a space. I really utilize rugs to define. Okay, this is the living room and this is the office, and here is the dining room. And it kinda separates it in a way without having walls, inhibiting your living area.


The Fourth common mistake that you might be making around your house is hanging your art too high.


So, in theory, you are when you hang it should be close to your eye level. If you live in a really large house, you probably should adjust this to keep the scale of the space so you can bump it up a few inches. But in general, a high scale but in general, you want to try to make sure that the center of your art pieces is about eye level, which is around 60 inches or… So obviously this is subjective, sent all you are and depending on how big your space is but it’s kind of like a good generalized rule of the another great way to make sure that things are kind of at the right height if you have a large piece of art or a large mirror, I try to make sure if it’s near a window or a door frame that the height of the door frame and the height of the art are somewhat similar. Give or take a few inches, if you need additional help, when it comes to hanging or how to hang it in vertical spaces, horizontal spaces awkward hallways. I have a blog post that I put up on the blog this week, where I give you 10 full pro hacks on how to hang or at all-around your home. So if you wanna check that out so low, and the visit to… So if I come and mistake people to make, they put all of their furniture, up against the walls and it’s like they’re afraid to be anywhere but backed up against the wall instead of pushing everything up, against the walls. You wanted to feel lively and conversational, so bringing your furniture away from those walls setting them up in different angled areas will again allow, for better community feeling areas, and it doesn’t make space feel really awkwardly broken up and just starkly open. You wanted to feel code that you wanna bring stuff in, but you wanna do in a way that allows for convenient walkways it doesn’t block doors, and there’s kind of a strategy behind doing that. If you check out to live a journal we’ve got lots of information and resources on how to do that effectively and how to do that the right way.


So I tell in technical, the fixed and last common mistake that people make around their homes, as they go to furniture stores and they buy a furniture set and that’s what they put into their bedrooms or into their homes, there’s nothing inherently wrong with the furniture set but instead of just buying the set all at once, you want your home to feel kinda curated and then it actually reflects your personal style. So it’s kind of fun to add in a dining table that’s kind of maybe one style in a bookcase that maybe is another style making sure that the colors are connected and there are some similar repeating attributes of them that way. It’s not drastically different. Number, my 60-30-10. rule: back the video link below to check out that reference. Just make sure that you have some things that speak to each other ’cause you wanted to feel cohesive, but you don’t want it to feel still matching at that. It’s not unique if that makes sense. So if the bedroom sets or the furniture sets and go for something a little bit more diverse unique and have you…


Okay, you guys, those are the six common mistakes that we make around your home. And again, don’t worry if you feel like, “Oh my gosh, I have all of these around my house.
