Do you ever walk into a room and something just doesn’t feel right? How the furniture is arranged can immediately determine the mood and impression the space has on the person entering it.
Here are some easy ways to make sure a space functions well and is also pleasing to look at
Always start with a plan. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What is the purpose of the room?
- How much space do I need?
- How big is the room?
- How big is my furniture? (take out a measuring tape).
The smaller the space the more you need to make sure you have a good plan. Pick small scale pieces that offer a lot of seating space. Transitional or modern pieces with small arms and low backs work well in small spaces. Just because a room is small, it doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style. Don’t be afraid of color because the room is small. If you want to go neutral, add blasts of color in your accessories. A fun patterned occasional chair or rug adds vibrancy and a splash of color to a room without being distracting or overpowering.
Does your room have a fabulous sliding glass door, or bay window with a beautiful view? Maybe you have a beautiful fireplace, you want to accent these focal points of the home, to make sure any would be buyers take note of them. Add a large piece of art over the fireplace. A large mirror will brighten up and enlarge any space.
Place your larger pieces of furniture first. Avoid placing these large pieces in the natural line of traffic. Keep in mind how you will enter and exit the room. You want to leave 3 feet of open space for your primary traffic areas – anything else will feel small and cramped. I always say, expansive feels expensive.
