6 common mistakes homeowners make after moving in

You might think these 6 oversights seem trivial, but they do make a big difference between a space and a home. You want a well-designed, cosy space to come home to and show off to visitors, so be wary that you don't make these mistakes:

HAVING A GOOD ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM BUT NO SOFA

It's such a waste if you pair a great looking TV and sound system in the living room with a frumpy sofa or recliner! This entertainment room keeps it simple with the colour scheme and furnishings so nothing will distract the bachelor from his movie! A comfortable couch allows you to enjoy your entertainment system so much more!

OVERDOING A PARTICULAR THEME

It's perfectly fine to express your adoration for a particular football club, but keep it within your bedroom, please? 

NOT HAVING SUFFICIENT STORAGE

Give your sports equipment a dedicated space of their own. Consider hanging them up so you free up space on the floor. It's cleaner, too!

Keep clutter at bay, store your DVD collection in cabinets for a minimalist look.

LACK OF PROPER LIGHTING

Lighting affects the way you use your space, and the ambience of your home. Not into fancy pendant lamps and chandeliers? Try track lighting instead.

Don't forget task lamps in the study room and by your bedside.

HAVING A POORLY-STOCKED KITCHEN

Even if you don't intend to entertain any guests or cook in your apartment, it is essential that you have at least enough utensils and plates for a table of four. You'll never know when you might need them!
