Arranging furniture is a daunting home styling task. When faced with an empty room, filling it with furniture that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional is not easy. But these proven home styling tips can help you arrange your furniture in a way that works for your life and your design preferences.
- Create a Focal Point- Never underestimate the power of a good focal point in a room. This may occur naturally, like if you have a large window or fireplace in the room that dominates the space. But other times, you may have to create your own focal point, like with a media unit or television area.
- Keep Furniture Away from the Walls- It may seem like a good idea to push your furniture against the walls to make the room seem bigger. But this can have the opposite effect and ruin the aesthetics of the room. If you have a smaller room, allow just a few inches between the walls and your furniture, but in larger rooms, leave several feet to create distinct areas for sitting, relaxing, watching television, dining, etc.
- Balance Your Furniture- There should be a balance of large and small furniture pieces throughout your space. When putting furniture pieces in a room, consider both their size and their placement. Choose a variety of shapes and never group all of the large or all of the small pieces together.
