The 3 pitfalls to avoid when styling your coastal apartment

Everyone has their own idea of what constitutes ‘failure’. The work of an interior designer requires a lot of thought and creativity, the capacity for which of course varies from person to person. What may be considered acceptable for one designer may be downright cringe worthy for the next.

With that said, there are three styling pitfalls that all experts would agree on.

Not getting the measurements right

Measurements are one of the most important aspects of interior design in Australia’s South Wales coastal apartments. Of course we can’t really talk about measurements without comparing every item in the room with each other and how their total look ties together. The idea is to make things interesting by maintaining both variety and coherence.

Experts over at Advantage property styling interior designers recommend that homeowners should conduct a proper audit of their room before committing to expensive furniture that may not be compatible with the overall ambiance of the room.

Some people believe that adding bulky furniture will help make room’s features stand out. But coastal apartments in South Wales require a smarter choice in the pieces that you invest in.

Don’t just rush into filling as much space as possible. Sometimes all you need are sleek, streamlined designs rather than bulky and oversized fixtures that  take away from your room’s design.

Not using 3D models for in-depth experimentation

There are several online tools that allow you to experiment with the layout of your room by fiddling with a virtually endless combination of soft furnishings and accessories. You can take a 3D photograph of your room and then upload it onto a website. While there might be a slightly steep learning curve before you could get the hang of these tools, they will help you save a lot of time, money and arduous hard work. Once you have the final picture in mind of what you truly want, you will get the design perfectly right the first time around.

Underestimating the impact of layering

Many homeowners of coastal apartments in South Wales underestimate the aesthetic potential of their living rooms. These spaces in our houses are normally utilized to relax and unwind after a long day at work, and watch some TV with family. Home owners tend to prioritize function over interior décor without realizing that a simple adjustment on effective layering can bring their room back to life.

Some of these elements that could be integrated into the overall design include wall coverings, furniture coverings, flooring, lighting and miscellaneous accessories such as ceiling fans. Remember that it is important to add items in a variety of shapes, sizes and theme. Be careful to utilize similar colour palettes irrespective of your design choice.

By the time you’re done with all the layering, your room should look incredibly interesting with its very own personality. If every glance in your room is not telling an eclectic and unique story, you probably could do with just a tad bit of redesigning.
