These interiors should be avoided.
A mistake we often make in the home is to overflow the hallway with shoes and jackets. These are just one of seven common losses that interior designers see in Norwegian homes.
– Shoes that stand on shoe racks and jackets in amounts hanging on the wall do not look particularly neat. A neat room provides peace of mind, says interior designer Mia Kjelstad.
According to the expert, we are good at thinking about storage, but unfortunately there are often visible solutions.
– Many suppliers have shallow cabinets and flexible solutions for shoe storage. You can also do a lot of yourself, she believes.
However, she advises you to avoid mirror wardrobes, but also have mirrors and wardrobes separately.
- This way you get lost in the hallway.
Floor to ceiling
Also the interior stylist Tone Hook believes you should go for a closet that gives a neat look.
– Cabinets that go from floor to ceiling look generally cleaner and more tidy because you do not have any slipping here and there. In addition, it utilizes the space well, she states.
It’s easy to take action when you’re going to clean an entire home, but what about taking it like an annual project?

Too much patterns and colors
Here are many that exaggerate.
– If you mix too many patterns and colors, the room can quickly work “noisy” and less in size than it really is, says interior designer Tone Kroken.
According to the hook, you exaggerate when there are too many colors, patterns and things that make the room lack a harmony or balance.
– Colors are a big trend we will see more of the interior in the future, but do not exaggerate, she points out.
Be sure to have a variation in the lighting!
– The driving lights or the wrong lighting are not nice, says the interior stylist Tone Kroken.
She especially thinks the wrong lighting in the kitchen is bad and is advisable to have a variation in how to mount the lamps.
– There can be a combination of spotter and decor lighting with, for example, hanging lamps, she thinks.
The absent or misplaced lighting in the living room is one of the worst losses you can make when decorating, says interior designer Mia Kjelstad.
– First, you need general ceiling lighting. When it’s in place, you can insert mood light or spotlight, such as a reading lamp where light is needed or to brighten up pictures, she says.
Tiles on all walls
Old-fashioned and chipped, we will believe the experts.
– Tiles on all walls in the bathroom are old fashioned and chipped. The pattern board on the tiles is also not nice, says the interior designer Tone Kroken.
Paint the tiles with lime paint, consult the interior expert.
– With painted wall surfaces, the room will work more exclusively, she explains.
In the smaller bathroom she has the same, preferably a light, tint on the floor and walls to make the room appear bigger.
Wrong size of furniture
Applies to both small and large rooms.
This loss applies to both small and large rooms. Choosing furniture of the right size in relation to the room is important.
Especially in the living room this is a typical mistake.
Many think that if they have a small living room, they must have a small sofa, but that’s not necessarily the way, says Tone Kroken.
She believes it is important to prioritize some furniture that is larger than others because this gives the furniture a greater weight in the room.
Sometimes it may be ok to go down a size, says Mia Kjelstad.
– It matters a bit, many want a huge couch to settle down, but if it takes a third of the space in the living room, it’s aesthetically better to go down a size, she says.
– On the other hand, it looks as strange with furniture that is totally under-dimensioned for the room they are in, Kjelstad adds to.
Poor space utilization in small rooms
Go for smart solutions.
It can be a big challenge to find aesthetically pleasing, while at the same time practical solutions in rooms where space is limited.
– In the kitchen and bathroom there is often too little space, too little storage and poor space utilization of the hall, says interior designer Mia Kjelstad.
However, there are several possibilities.
– There are many creative solutions! For example, you can use space-built benches instead of many chairs in the kitchen, folding tables / shelves and retractable units, she says.
In small kitchens it’s foolish for maximum space utilization, says interior designer Tone Kroken.
– This is often more convenient than drawers and you can focus more on having countertops and good workplaces. Do not have too many things, try to organize so it’s practical and functional, she believes.
You forget the bedroom
Many drops important details.
– Okay, you’re just going to sleep in this room, but it can still be nice, says interior designer Mia Kjelstad, who especially believes the boys sins against this room.
She advises you to paint, preferably in dark, warm colors, as well as invest in delicious bedside and good lighting.
– An added luxury may be to have light in the closet. Then you will not disturb the partner if you are going to find clothes while the partner is still sleeping, she thinks.
The hook also believes the bedroom is a room that can be left empty and empty.
– A bed, a nightstand and a mirror wardrobe can quickly get boring. Buy some nice bed sets, have some blankets and hang a curtain over the mirror to make the room more cozy, she advises.
