You have done an amazing job with your decor. I will just shift this painting a little to the left and, voila! Now your house is perfect,” said no interior designer ever. But what would they say if they came into your home? What kind of things would they notice?

We’ve compiled six of the most common elements design professionals first take note of when they enter a home for the first time. Make sure you’ve got these right and you will at least avoid any obvious atrocities.

1. Room Layout

Place things where you would never have thought to before. You may find you were ready for a change.
