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.
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.
