Everyone knows that decorating is difficult, but they don't know what difficulty is. Even people who come to decorate cannot say for sure, because problems that every home faces are actually different. But one thing is certain: if finishing details are not done well, they will be very unsatisfactory after finishing, which will seriously affect future occupancy. Here are some common misconceptions in home decor.
First of all, don't think that smaller budget, better
Many owners compare several companies before renovating, which is usually done during a refurbishment. But it should be noted that lower price, better, you can’t just blindly look at final price. Because different plans, different materials, different construction methods and different construction quality will affect the price. Therefore, we must think things through thoroughly before making a decision.
Secondly, decoration should not be conspicuous
For a luxury decoration, it is absolutely essential to design a large and dazzling crystal chandelier at home, which gives people a sense of luxury. But when you move in, you will find that house is a place to relax, and there really is no need for such luxury. Moreover, if a crystal chandelier is not cleaned for a long time, it will become more and more ugly. In addition, there are many spotlights installed in living room or bedroom, and they are not turned on several times a year. So these lights are really needed.
Third, there is no need to hang whole house for decoration
Many spaces are too ugly to be displayed due to amount of wiring, especially in special spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms that need to be covered with ceilings. For rest of space, especially dining room, there is no need to make a complex ceiling design, simple lines of plaster will do.
Fourthly, more sockets better
Many people think that they need to reserve more outlets for future during finishing, in order to save circuit boards everywhere. But this is not case. If too many outlets are reserved, it will not only waste manpower and materials, but also reserve too many outlets, easily creating a safety hazard. The socket reservation must be confirmed in advance, as long as allocation is reasonable, this is sufficient. In addition, position and height of socket must also be determined, otherwise it cannot be used if it is blocked by furniture.
5. Environmentally friendly materials do not mean that finishes are environmentally friendly
Many friends think that materials they choose are environmentally friendly, so finishes are environmentally friendly. But you should know that no matter how environmentally friendly material is, it will inevitably emit pollutants such as formaldehyde in room. There is no material with zero formaldehyde content, but it does not exceed norm. However, in event of an “overlap” in finish, no matter how environmentally friendly finish is, there will be risks of exceeding norm.
