How To Arrange Home Furniture
Once your architectural project is done with construction, it’s time to decorate the interior! However, for some, it may cause some more stress due to not knowing how to arrange a home. In this post, we will give you tips on how to arrange your home and make it look just as beautiful as the concepts your architect gave you.
Create A Wish List
Just like you did with the design phase of your new project, create wish lists or Pinterest boards of a style or aspects of styles you would like to incorporate in your homes décor. This will help you get a clear picture of what you like or dislike and make it easier to purchase home décor items and furniture.
Talk With An Interior Designer
Interior designers are great sources to go to when consulting help on decorating the interior of your home. They will assist you in selecting color palettes, furniture, flooring, lighting, and general décor. Interior designers help make the space come to life by working with your natural preferences and their unique ideas.
Assess The Space
Looking at the space you have to work with will help you determine where furniture pieces and décor can go. Take into consideration the use and purpose of each room and what activities or daily routines will be happening there. Buy furniture according to what the room will be used for to fully optimize every inch of the space.
Center The Room
Every room should have a focal point. This defines a space and gives it structure. Focal points can be fireplaces, art pieces, windows with a view, furniture, etc. Whatever it may be, center the room or space around a defining point.
Put It On Paper
Creating a drawing of the room before you move furniture in can help give you a better visual of where to place furniture and accessories. This can also help save you time moving pieces back and forth. Keep an open mind when moving furniture around.
When setting furniture in a room, move the biggest pieces in first. You want to make sure you don’t block any doorways or walkways. It’s generally a good idea to have your biggest piece of furniture face the focal point. Move the rest of the furnishings in and place them around the focal point and biggest piece of furniture. Pull some of your furniture pieces off the wall to give the illusion of a bigger room. Using different heights of furniture can add depth to the space. Be mindful of the size of your lamp shades. With shades that are too big they may end up getting knocked over or be in your guests faces. Electrical cords and wires should be kept out of the way of walking spaces so no one will trip over them.
Arranging home furniture shouldn’t cause you a headache. It should be a fun part of the completion of your home project. If you want more help, don’t hesitate to reach out to a designer to get more tips on creating beautiful spaces in your home.
