Have you recently moved or you have not gotten around to decorating your home? The holidays are right around the corner and will be here before we know it. Here are few decor faux pas you should consider fixing before you family and guests arrive.
Your furniture, floors and walls are sad, dull and lifeless
While knowing that your in-laws are going to be visiting your home this holiday season may have you wishing you could run out and buy new everything, don’t. When you take the time to bring back a little shine and life back to your existing decor elements, you make your home feel inviting and fresh. And the best thing is, you can fix these decor faux pas with elbow grease rather than a ton of money.
Your art is hanging on the wall way too high
Art hung too high on the wall seems out of place. Like it’s floating alone in a void. It can make an entire room — nay, an entire home — look…off. Thankfully, it’s blissfully easy to fix.
Your curtains are not long enough (or too long!)
Curtains are another “yeeash” spot that can make a whole room seem off. When curtains are too short, your room looks like it has high-water pants on. Too long, and it looks like you didn’t hem your pants. When your curtains are just the right length, you or your guests won’t notice them…and that’s exactly the outcome you want.
Your wires are a cluttered, hot mess
You might be so used to seeing the cluttered coil of wires sticking out from under your entertainment system that you don’t notice them anymore, but your guests will surely spot them. While not the biggest decor faux pas in the world, it’s so easy to fix that it’s worth doing; it’ll instantly make a room look cleaner and more organized.
Your dining seating is Uncomfortable
All the furniture in your home should be comfy, but before holiday guests arrive, make sure your dining chairs and benches are comfortable to sit in, at least for a little while. Because if the food and the conversation are great — but the dining chairs are digging uncomfortably into thighs — the party will be over sooner than you may like.
