In a common area like a living room, a rug should be wider than the width of your furniture so that it serves as a base. In a bedroom, it should be perpendicular to the bed.

"It should be hitting your bed like a 'T' but they'll run it the long way of the bed, instead, so that it's not underneath the nightstand and it looks kind of funny," Caitlin Murray of Black Lacquer Design told INSIDER.

Mistake #2: Buying furniture that matches too well

You don't want your home to look like a furniture showroom. A collected look adds personality.

"For example, I wouldn't buy matching a bed frame with matching end tables because it'll just make your room look like a catalogue," interior designer Max Humphrey told INSIDER. "The best rooms are ones that look like they've been collected over time."

"If you're going to have open storage, like shelves or nightstands that have an open base, it's really, really important to consider what you're going to be putting on that, because that becomes your design," said Murray.

Make sure you're including a variety of neatly-organized accessories and pay attention to color groupings. You want an artful, eclectic mix of items, not a chaotic mess.

Mistake #4: Not enough lighting

Extra lighting doesn't just make it easier to see - it also helps a space feel more dynamic.

"Sometimes people will have overhead lighting and they think that's enough, but I like to layer lighting," interior designer Holly Hickey Moore told INSIDER. "Have ambient lighting from your floor lamps and table lamps."
