💡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.

Easy Tricks To Make It Right. Part One

Today FurnitureCart team starts the decorating tips and advice series of articles to help our readers omit the mistakes when rearranging furniture.

The series is good for those, who:

– bought awesome pieces of furniture, but still feel something is wrong;

– don’t feel comfortable enough in the living space;

– don’t like the layout and want it to be successful both for homies and guests;

– would like to know few easy tricks to fix the possible mistakes made when rearranging.

💡Get ‘off-the-wall’

Surely, the living room might become bigger if all the furniture is pushed to the walls. But, it is a communication space, so if you are shouting to have a conversation, it is the hint to start rethinking your living room layout. Move the sofa closer to the middle and create the chat-island pairing it with couple of comfortable chairs or a loveseat. Be sure to make a focal and functional spot in the middle with the coffee or cocktail table or an ottoman transforming into it.

💡Less is more

Don’t overwhelm the small spaces with a lot of furniture pieces. Try to find a good solution by multifunctional items. Kitchen islands and home bars can easily substitute the fully-featured dining room set for the small rooms and little company. Or, say, a good loveseat together with one or two poufs work great as a conversation area for the small living room or studio.

💡Divide and govern

Another challenge is to deal with the large and open rooms. In this case you have to establish separate zones. For example, you might like an idea of having a seating zone for conversations as one area, and another area as working space (with a table or desk for paperwork, hobby or art projects and homework). If you need more entertainment in your house – make a soft zone for TV-watching (with a nice comfortable sofa or theater seating) and a bar zone. Set your room strict according to your needs to feel as comfortable as possible.

Tips and Tricks On Decorating Child’s Bedroom

Just the same, as adults, little ones need and want a fabulous, comfortable and functional bedroom. Today the Furniture Cart specialists in home décor and interior design are here to give you few tips and tricks on creating the magnificent space for a child that will become a true retreat and a favorite spot for your little superhero or a tender lady.

Fleeting childhood years are the most important in growing an imaginative and self-confident personality inside your little treasure, so let your child enjoy it to the full extent and involve your kid into the creative process of making their nook, while choosing the color scheme, main theme of bedroom and furnishings.

Well, frankly speaking, this is the first you have to start with! Just before decorating or going shopping, you have to ask your child to imagine and tell you how the dream bedroom looks; what will the main theme of the nook be; and what the favorite colors of your little one are. Let’s have the precise look at the rules and regulations of this very important process.

Follow the interests of your child

Every kid has a passion for something special. Either baseball, space, science, Marvel characters or Disney princesses and fairies, it is pretty easy to work the top interest into the main bedroom theme. It does not mean that you have to overwhelm with the only one character and theme, just few things will be enough to keep simple yet stylish. Few wall decals, accessories and a comforter will help to keep up with it. Moreover, when your son or daughter matures, it will be easier to rearrange.

Chose the color palette… and add something extra!

Keep in mind the color your kid loves, and let it be the dominant color in the ambience or select two tones which your son or daughter prefers. Add the third one completely different, yet appealing to your child. This color becomes “accent” color for some accessories, accent chair or a beanbag, accent pillows. Adding a fluffy rug will help to complete the whole style and make it a cozy and restful room. Just let both the imagination of yours and your child flow!

Mess vs Storage

Small kids and mess usually go together, don’t they? Solutions are always easy: use a plenty of alternatives to store and convert the mess into order and make it a well-organised place. Use open shelves for an easy access to the things your child loves or uses often, and keep the rest of the stuff in the drawers, chests or storage beds. Check!

Shrink?!

Don’t panic if you have a small space but a long list of wishes for a dream bedroom from your child! It is easy to maximize the space by furniture rearrangement and a touch of space improvement. Interior designer tip: push the bed against the wall, so the headboard is in the corner. It’s definitely a win-win – cause avoiding open areas around the sleeping spot cuts down the fears of the monsters under the bed (verified!) and it opens up the space in the middle of the room.

Doubled, tripled and more

If still there’s not much space, but it has to be shared by two or more kids, a bunk bed or trundle may be a good option. Still leave enough freedom for each of your young heirs to add their own bedding, bedside lamp or artwork to hang over in their nook, which will help to set their individual style. And, with the bunk beds – don’t forget to set the safety rules.

Smart

Once your kid is grown up enough to have regular study at home, he/she needs an area for focused homework and another area to rest. Designer’s tip for you due to that fact: you will have to arrange the furniture for the study close to the window to let enough daylight to lit the study corner. To save space or to get the most of your furniture investment, select the furniture with the smart options, the one that is easily transformed or continues to be used as the kid grows.

Wish you to have an inspiring decorating and rearrangement, and don’t forget that it is the process supposed to give you and your child a lot of positive emotions and a great fun!
