Part four of 100 very useful decorating tips from best interior designers gathered by HouseBeautiful.

  1. When ordering fabric, add two yards to the final order. You never want to be stuck with a ruined cushion and a discontinued fabric on a piece of upholstery. Call it insurance against a rainy-red-wine day  Randall Powers

  2. Request unlacquered hardware whenever you can. Most of the big companies are offering it now and the subtle bit of patina adds so much warmth to your house. Even if you never polish it, it will look just fine. Richard Bories and James Shearron

  3. Make sure you display everything in your collection together Ann Wolf

  4. You never want to match your walls to a colour in one of your fabrics. It will be too strong. Find a grayed-out version of the color. Sallie Giordano

  5. I get bored without color in a room. Interesting, strong, clear colors, are easier to live with in the long run than pale colors. People always think it’s the opposite, but in actuality soft color get boring much quicker Richard Keith Langham.

  6. We do adjustable, horizontal glass shelves for shoe closets. Slanted shelves take up 25% more space, and glass is easily cleaned. Line up your shoes so that the right and left shoes of each pair alternate toe and heel. This way you can quickly see each heel and toes need freshening, and you will also have a quick reference for heel heights and toe shapes when you are picking out shoes in a rush Elissa Cullman

  7. Instead of a towel bar, mount 5 robe hooks 68’’ high for towels and robes. Robert Stilin

  8. Always use white linens and towels. Never cross the line – always use white. They’re bleachable and they send a message of cleanliness, refinement and order Myra Hoefer

  9. The ideal height to hang your flat-screen TV is at eye level when you’re in viewing position. The ideal viewing distance is 1 ½ times the size of your flat screen Jean Larette

  10. Don’t hang a mirror between the windows. The spatial void it creates distracts from the view. And don’t fall prey to using mirrors in every room or over every mantel. Mirrors are not art, and a room needs art. Carey Maloney
