AN interior design expert has pointed out the mistakes people make that can make their home look cheap.
Vybe Interior, a design company that goes by the username vybeinterior on TikTok, recently posted a video that details three elements of your house that may be affecting its appeal.
1. De-clutter your cords
Firstly, Vybe Interior explains that cord clutter from devices in your house and other appliances is making your home look unorganized.
Not to mention, having cords everywhere is a tripping hazard for guests and could knock over and break devices and appliances very easily.
“You can run your cords through the wall if you want, and if not you can get a case from Amazon,” says Vybe Interior.
Such cases are relatively cheap, and can cover messy cords and even look as though they are part of the wall.
2. Get rid of inspirational quote pillows
To add to the interior design excellence of your living space, Vybe Interior also recommends removing inspirational quote pillows.
They include an image of a pillow from Wayfair that sits at around $69 with the inscription “live. laugh. love.”
This kind of element can add inauthentic energy to the space, which can be crucial according to some experts.
All that Vybe Interior notes about this detail is “Enough. Said.”
Clearly they aren’t a fan of what inspirational quote pillows do to the appearance of a living space.
3. Remove mass-produced artwork
Another important interior design touch to improve the quality of your apartment or house is artwork, just not mass-produced pieces, according to Vybe Interior.
They recommend that you try and find something original to make your living space seem more authentic and appear less cheap and repetitive.

It is possible to find less common works on the site, but other avenues like a local antique shop or independent artists may be a better option.
