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.
