Easy Tricks To Make It Right. Part Two

We continue giving advice how to omit the mistakes when arranging furniture in your new apartment or rearranging it in your beloved house. Last time we have included few common tricks to make the arrangement right. Missed them? No worries! Here you can read it through, right before getting to know the new tricks, we’ve got for you today. Follow FurnitureCart not to miss a thing!

💡Start Big

One of the common mistakes in decorating and furniture arrangement is in wrong starting point. Always start from the placement of the largest and the most important furniture piece in the space. For instance, if taking bedroom, bed should be placed first. Believe us, in this case you will make the most of your space. As a general rule, there are 2 choices to place it. Either against the wall opposite the  bedroom door, or along the room’s longest wall. The first position will create great view when you enter the room, the second – gives you chance to add nightstands or bedside tables. The next step is to place a dresser, as it is likely to be the second largest piece in your room. And so you go from the biggest to smallest. When you are finished with the bigger pieces you will easily see whether you’ve got enough space to place extra: a vanity set or an elegant home office set.

💡Break The Rules

On the one hand conventions are good to stick by, if you are taking the general rules and follow them, on the other – true genius inventions come when the rules are broken. Placing the rectangular or oblong dining table along the longest wall of a dining room gives it the extra space for moving around and leaves space to incorporate a buffet, sideboard or secretary. Placed closer to the middle of the space, the dining room set will snap off the room, and leave space for little else.

💡 Think Function-Wise

Comfort keeps pace with the functionality. While designing living space on your own, don’t forget to make it as handy as possible. Think about what you’ll be doing as you use the furniture. If the side table or coffee table  is out of reach of the seats, then you have to think about convenience first.

💡 Balance Right

Locating key furniture pieces in one corner is another common mistake, bringing visual disbalance and reducing the feeling of comfort and serenity. Achieving balance doesn’t mean you have to go totally symmetrical. If in a living room, the classic solution is to pair a loveseat with two accent chairs at the opposite side. Or ‘divide and govern’ by establishing furniture islands as we have advised in our previous post on Easy Tricks To Make It Right.

Feng Shui Bedroom

The focal and main point of your bedroom is undoubtedly bed. So, to make a decision where to place it right within the borders of the room is most common challenge one faces when setting up home. The challenge becomes even more exciting if you are setting up your home with the right feng shui energy flows. Let the FurnitureCart team help you with a few valuable advice.

You may know that you should not align the bed with the door. What does it actually mean? When your feet are in line with the door, you simply lose your energy at night, and as the classic feng shui says, your personal energy gets weaker. Doors are believed to be the connectors, and through the doors the energies are pulled from one area to another. So, if your feet are pointing at any door in room, either the main one, or the bathroom door and even balcony door, it is high time to cure the energy loss and do something with the bed position.

The first remedy for bedroom is to move the bed off that line. Still, if it’s impossible, another solution is to block the leak of energy by a tall and solid footboard. If you love your platform bed, and it has no or low footboard, there is another way to solve it: place a piece of furniture between the bed and the door. An upholstered bench or a small dresser with a solid back, – just a couple of ideas for your imagination flow.

The door is just the beginning! Another thing is about the mirror: mirror facing the bed and reflecting your body while you are sleeping is no good. The reason is in the fact that it depletes or exhausts your energy instead of rebuilding it during night hours. Solution is in moving the mirror or changing its angle. If it’s ‘not in your cards’ – cover the mirror with any decor for a night time (curtains, for instance).

Avoid any heavy items hanging over your bed (like chandelier or ceiling fan). Why? It creates heavy and oppressive energy. If there is no possibility to move the bed, or say, there is a huge ceiling beam overhead that can’t be removed – use an easy and light canopy to be protected.

Moreover, if you have a bedroom with a sloped ceiling, you better move your bed so that the head is under the highest point of the ceiling. The very sloped parts apply pressure to your energy, leading to health problems and depressed feelings.

If your bed is placed under a window, to keep the energy flows right add a solid headboard or use heavy window curtains or blinds to cover the window. From the other side, positioning bed closer to the bedroom door is not a good solution either. The wall containing the door means a bed is open to a rush of active energy. In this case, create a barrier that helps to be defended from the harsh energy rushing in.

Avoid sharp objects and corners, decorative arms pointed at your body while you sleep. Soften your bedroom as much as you can allow, with fabric, throws and pillows, flowers and plants, or another soft object.

A bed placed against the wall restricts the energy flow. Furthermore, if you share it with your partner, it brings an imbalance in the relationship. It is better to pull the bed away from the wall for a clear access from both sides, and balance it right with the nightstands from both sides. For small living spaces – centre the bed for equal space from both sides, no matter how small it is.

 

Modern Elegance vs Classic Chic: The Home Created With Love

Contemporary style does not always mean that it has to be minimalistic or loft, designed like the modern skyscraper or a rocket. It has many looks from urban to retro and from Art Deco to casual contemporary. It often contains the mix of features to bring unique chic to the connoisseurs of faultlessly designed home.

Contemporary Nadia Rectangular Dining Room Set by Chintaly Imports Furniture is an ideal example to show the way how this style combines the features of different trends (predominantly Art Deco) and works out unique and gorgeous set.

Though the modern style shares obvious common traits, it has many distinct looks. The distinguishing feature of contemporary style – it is never overstuffed or fussy. It comes easily recognizable with its sleek but simple lines, no matter whether modern bedroom or contemporary dining room. On the contrary, a traditional style tends to have plenty of intricate details or carving. Traditional decorating is calm and predictable. It looks so classic, that might seem outdated. Classic dining room sets, as well as traditional bedroom sets look lavish.

The Barocco Bedroom by ESF is made in traditional style with European influences. Black and gold colors, together with the Baroque style influence, make it a perfect example of the classic furniture.

Contemporary style combines many finishes and materials, sometimes uses brave ideas. But both styles look awesome if the main trend is kept. Which means, if you are starting to arrange home furniture in a contemporary style, the royal chic furniture among it won’t look consonant.

The Delhi Bedroom Collection provides unique contemporary style with plenty of functionality, take a look what one needs to liven up the modern master bedroom.

Traditional style home is comfortable for any age group. With its familiar look that we’ve seen from the royal castles to furniture show rooms, it often might look warmer. It occurs due to the overwhelming details that gorgeously decorate the pieces of furniture.
