The Most Common Mistakes I See in People's Homes - Part 2

By Homesmsp @HomesMSP

Previously I shared a common mistake I see in many homes in Part 1 of this Common Mistake Series. As a Home Stager and Designer I see hundreds of homes.

Don't beat yourself up if you are doing any of these mistakes. That is the reason I call them "common" mistakes.
The second most common mistake I see in homes is:

Not enough lamps

Ceiling lights do not replace the need for lamps. If you are selling your home lamps are needed to bring more light into a room, light up a dark corner and make a room cozier. Lighting from the lamps will also make a room look larger.

Lamps


If you are not selling your home you need lamps to warm up a room, disperse the lighting throughout the room and create more ambiance for entertaining.
As a general rule a living room or family room should have three lamps; placed in as close to a triangular position as possible. What a difference this will make!

As a side note, make at least two of the lamps 'table' lamps if possible. Floor lamps are great and are necessary in tight spaces but three floor lamps in one room is not the best.

Lamps in a Triangle

If you tuned in to Part 1 I talked about a common mistake in furniture placement. How does the arrangement in the two pictures above avoid that mistake?? Yes....this is a quiz. LOL

Table lamps on each side of a bed is the best way to make an impact and frame out the bed. Don't have these lamps be too small. A secondary mistake, let's call it #2B, is dinky little lamps by the bed. The more massive the bed the taller and beefier your lamps need to be.

Lamps by Bed


I am a Designer and Home Stager and I see things in homes that are sometimes difficult for others to see. I can't fix my leaky faucet so I hire a plumber; I can't write a computer program so I hired an expert to put together my website. We are all good at different things so if you need to, hire a professional.
