10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot

We all are used to buying
tables and chairs from the same collection. If you buy a bed, it should be part
of a bedroom set.
But today you can forget about
all these stereotypes. Bright Side will tell you which rules you can break.

Matching sofas and armchairs
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
Many people are used to the
idea that furniture should be bought only in a set: the sofa and the armchairs
should be the same. You no longer have to stick to this rule. You can buy completely
different armchairs to go with your sofa. What really matters is that they are
similar to something else in your home.

Bedroom furniture
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
You don’t have to buy a
bedroom set. You can live without it and just buy some nice tables.
8.
White walls
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
Yes, your walls can be white
without looking like a hospital — as long as you don’t put too many white
things in the room. The most important thing is to plan the emphasis correctly,
and your interior will be very light and attractive.
7.
Furniture along the walls
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
This opinion is very popular
because people think that this gives them more free space. Well, yes, if the
room is small and there are no other options. However, if it’s big enough, you
can easily forget this stereotype.
6.
Trivial tiles in the bathroom
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
There are now so many ways to
decorate your bathroom, so you can finally say no to trivial tiles. You can try
tiles that look like stone, concrete, or even wood.
5.
Matching table and chairs
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
You can make your kitchen
interior more diverse if you buy a table and chairs from different collections.
Don’t be afraid to experiment.
4.
Big pieces of furniture
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
Big armrests and big sofa
backs are not popular anymore. Simple shapes and small sizes are more popular
today. When you choose furniture, remember one rule: the smaller your room is,
the smaller your armchairs, sofa, and table should be.
3.
A brightly colored child’s room
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
A child’s room can be calm
without very bright colors. In such a room, a child’s imagination may develop
better. A calm room can be made more interesting with toys, posters, and
different drawings.
2.
Concrete is too rough
 10 Interior Design Stereotypes It’s High Time We Forgot
There are many ways to use
concrete in your interior. It looks very good in a modern design. Its big
advantage is that it’s water-resistant, so you can even use it in a bathroom.
1.
Net curtains

If you really want to, you can
easily do without net curtains. Small rooms will even look bigger without them.
