I’m an interior expert, people make three common mistakes with their living rooms and they instantly make it look tacky

THE living room is the centre point of your house – so naturally you want it to look its best.

But an interior design expert has revealed the common styling mistakes you're making – which could make it look tacky.

Nick Lewis, who lives in Vancouver, shared the three common mistakes people make when styling their living rooms which instantly makes them look tacky.

On his TikTok account, Nick Talks Design, he gave three simple pointers as to why your living room may not look as good as you think it should.

He said: "First, is too small of a rug.

"Having a rug sit right the coffee table and not under any of the couch or leg chairs makes it look really silly, and kind of sad."

Nick suggests getting a rug that goes under the two front legs of your coach or side chairs to create a more luxe look.

The second common mistake Nick sees people make is having too much furniture that matches.

He explained: "If you go into a retailer the staff are going to try and sell you the couch and the side chairs to match.

"But don't do it.

He also explained that you could use pieces form the same collection but to try different coloured pieces to work together.
