There are few things more exciting than the day you decide you need a change in a big way - by rearranging your furniture. This activity makes a room, and its furnishings, feel almost brand-new and gives a great sense of satisfaction. To aid you in your rearranging enjoyment, we have 9 do's and don'ts of arranging furniture.
1. DON’T Shove It All To The Wall
Pushing all the furniture against the wall can make a space seem bigger, but this method lacks intimacy and coordination. Arrange “zones” for your couches and chairs with a focal point. In this image, the couch and chairs are in the middle of the room, but the arrangement visually makes sense because the fireplace is a strong focal point.
2. DO Consider Your Space
No matter what you do, you’ll never will your room to magically grow extra square feet. Keep that in mind when buying and arranging furniture. Don’t use big, chunky pieces in a small room that can’t handle the space. Make sure you do use the space you have to its fullest potential. Don’t let space be wasted, but don’t make the room look cramped, either.
