AN interior decorator has divided opinions after revealing common mistakes that can make a home look cheap.
Georgina (@spicinghomes) revealed no matter how beautiful the rug or homeware is it can bring down the overall value of the house.
She boasts almost 24,000 followers on TikTok where she shares hacks and inspiration for a beautifully styled home.
She poured herself a cup of tea as she took to the social media platform to list five things that make homes look cheap.
Standing in the kitchen, Georgina said: “Clutter.
“Those cracked cups and plates in your kitchen it’s time to let them go.
“Those clothes in that chair in your living room, that is all clutter.
“Short curtains make your space look cheap, the curtains should kiss the ground or be just one inch off the ground.”
Georgina stood in the living room alongside a perfectly hung curtain to clarify what she meant.
“Don’t hang your wall art too high. The purpose of wall art is to be enjoyed and appreciated.”
Pointing upwards, she continued: “So if you put it up there we won’t appreciate it.
“Chairs against the wall are a cheap look.”
The interior expert prepared for backlash as she shared a photo of a small rug that had been positioned under a table in the middle of the living room.
She said: “Many of you are going to hate me for this but that small rug or carpet makes your home look cheap.
“I don’t know who told us that a rug is only for the center table or short coffee table. They lied.
“Matching everything, blue chairs, blue cushions, blue curtains, and blue cupboards. It also makes your home look cheap.”
The video quickly went viral with over 161,000 views and commenters sharing their thoughts on the points mentioned.
One person wrote: “Watching this with clothes on my chair [laughing]. I’m still gathering energy to fold them.”
Another said: “I love your content. Let me start with those plates and cups [laughing].”
A third chimed in: “We’re lucky to have you on this app.”
A fourth commented: “There’s me who has limited space in the living room.”
Another added: “I have like 10 cracked cups.”
