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.
Create conversation areas
You should be able to hold a conversation your living room quite comfortably without having to crane your neck or shout across the room. Arrange your furniture in such a way that conversations can happen naturally, so you want your sofas and chairs to face one another (not head on) but close enough.
Use the right size rug
If you have an area rug in your room all the furniture in the room should sit on the rug. At the very least the front legs of all your furniture should be on the rug. If your rug is too small to do this, it’s time to toss it or place it in a different room and consider getting a bigger rug.
Use the right size artwork
If you have any hanging objects like artwork, mirrors or sculptural objects they need to be placed in relation to the furniture. Hanging a small picture over your sofa is a no-no, rather opt for a larger piece or a collection of smaller pieces. Your item should cover at least two thirds the length of the sofa. If you’re intent on using a smaller piece of work place it in a large frame against the backdrop of a large mat.
