15 things that can make any apartment look cheapVika
People have always wanted to live in a cozy, beautiful place. But sometimes expensive furniture and high-tech devices are not enough. It is very important to quickly remove unnecessary items and tacky things from your home because even things that seem unimportant can completely ruin the atmosphere of your home.
We always pay attention to details that many do not notice. And sometimes because of these details, even the most stylish apartments and houses look dirty and cheap.
1. Bed linen from different sets.
Studies have shown that the color, pattern, and fabric of your bedding can affect a person's physical and emotional health. How can you get healthy sleep if you sleep on something old and faded? Plus, bedding from different sets looks bad and cheap.
2. Refrigerator magnets.
Magnets look dirty and attract a lot of attention. But many people still cannot get rid of such a collection on their refrigerator. And this is usually due to the emotions we experience when we see our "trophies" from our various trips and memories.
3. Satin bed cover.
There are some exceptions, but to be honest, substandard cases like these weren't trendy even 20 years ago.
4. Lids from other pots and pans.
The lids that are used with different pots and pans are eye-catching. It looks even worse when the size is not the same: they are either too small and fall on the food, or they are too large, causing condensation to drip onto the stove. Even the best kitchen designs can look cheap with these seemingly unimportant details.
5. Covers for couches.
This old-fashioned way of protecting sofas and armchairs will ruin any interior design. Get rid of this habit and never return to it.
6. A rag at the door.
Old rags or torn towels often serve as rugs. Things like this ruin the impression of your place right away. Buy a simple rug that's easy to vacuum clean.
7. Dishes with chips and cracks.
The dishes must be new. Feel free to dispose of cups and plates that have tiny cracks or chips. Even if you are not superstitious and not afraid of bacteria, be careful: there may come a moment when a cracked cup of tea bursts in your hands.
8. Decorative stones on walls and near doorways.
There is absolutely no need to turn your place into a medieval castle or cave. Many people like to use decorative stones in corners, arches, and doorways. But it only looks good in country houses.
9. Lots of stuffed toys on sofas, beds, and shelves.
A pile of stuffed animals not only makes your home dirty but is also a great way to collect dust mites.
10. Dryers in the center of the room.
Not everyone has enough space for dryers on balconies, but that doesn't mean they should be in the center of the room. Make sure you put away dry clothes and the dryer itself when you don't need them.
11. Completely different flower pots.
Pots that look different (like a plastic cactus cup, a palm bucket, and a gnome-like pot) make this place cluttered. If you can't replace them, try decorating them yourself. You don't need to spend a lot of money because the materials you need (fabrics and paints) are cheaper than new pots.
12. Old kitchen towels.
Old colored towels make your home look really cheap. It's best to buy a set of matching towels that match your kitchen style.
13. Cheap sockets and switches.
Many people think that these are not important details that do not require a lot of investment. However, it is precisely such details that create a certain mood. Trendy outlets and switches instantly make the whole place look elegant.
14. Calendars hanging on the wall
15. Mass market for decor.
The mass market is always aimed at a large audience, so you should avoid it if you're aiming for individuality. Furniture and decorative items that can be seen in almost every apartment get boring and these houses are not unique.
