9 Rules for Arranging Furniture – Part 1

When you’re faced with an empty room knowing how to fill it can seem overwhelming, especially if you’ve recently moved into a new home. What worked in your past space may not necessarily gel in your new room which can be quite daunting however, with a few basic guidelines you can get it right every time.

In this three-part post, we look at nine rules for arranging furniture in your new home.

Find a balance

When it comes to arranging, furniture finding a balance is everything. Size and placement are key elements and you should avoid placing all the large or all the small items in one area or to one side of the room. This will make the room feel uneven. You should also try and aim to have a variety of shapes in your rooms.

Choose a focal point

Sometimes your focal point is chosen for you with a window, mantel piece or fireplace while other times you must create one with a TV for example but having a focal point will give your room direction. Once you decide on your focal point stick with it and arrange all your other furniture around it.

Consider traffic flow

One of the most important things to consider when arranging furniture is how the traffic flow. Leave enough room between your furniture pieces for people to walk freely without difficulty. The last thing you want is for your family or guests to constantly be tripping over furniture items or squeezing past uncomfortably.
