4 Mistakes to Avoid When Designing Your Grasslands Lakeland Home


If you want your home in Grasslands Lakeland Florida to sell fast and for top dollar you should know which designs will make your home stand out. You should also have an idea of the most common design flaws so that you will be able to steer clear from them and save yourself from embarrassment and headache when potential buyers come to view your home. Read on for the most common design mistakes that you should avoid. 

There are ways to avoid these common mistakes in your Lakeland FL Grasslands homes for sale, this includes careful and effective planning.

1. Hanging curtain rods too low

One of the most common mistakes when it comes to designing is hanging the curtain rods too low. If you want to create a sense of height and largeness in your home in Grasslands Golf & Country Club, you should hang the curtain rods as close to the ceiling as possible. Hanging the rods too low will make the ceiling feel lower. Buyers might think that the room is a lot smaller than it really is. Other than that, natural sunlight might be blocked making your room look dimmer.


2. Disorganized kitchen space

Kitchens can be places for putting meals together or for gathering. How well the kitchen suits the needs of the people using it can make or break a home buying decision. If you want buyers looking for Grasslands luxury homes for sale Lakeland Florida to notice your property, strike a balance between aesthetics and efficiency. Do not go overboard with storage and fill the walls with cabinets. Leave enough space to breathe.


3. Displaying collectibles all over the house

Placing your collectibles all over your house will only make it look cluttered and unorganized. Instead of dotting them around your home, put them together by group in frames on a wall or in a shelf. Doing so will create a bigger impact and better visual effect.


4. Spending too much on wallpaper

Most people make the mistake of bankrupting themselves in the search for the perfect wall paper. They think that they have to wallpaper an entire room. This mistake can be expensive and make the room feel crowded and busy. Instead of covering the entire room, it will be better to choose only a focal surface so that the print stands out. This will also make the room feel open and airy.
