Nothing gives your room a fresh new start than rearranging the furniture, but it can sometimes be a little hard to figure out which pieces should go where. If you are ready to take on this challenge and breathe new life into your living room, check out these tips to arranging the perfect living space.
But first, it is important that you take measurements of your space and furniture. This can help you draw out and plan which furniture can fit where, and how much room that leaves for walking or running for active children and pets.
Tip #1: Keep entrance and exits clear:
This means that people entering and exiting your living room do not have to slide, tumble or shuffle into or out of the room because of the way your furniture is arranged. Make sure theres a comfortable distance between your furniture and exits.
Tip #2: Get furniture that fits:
If you have an oversized couch, table or have too many pieces of furniture in your living room, your problem may not even be the arrangement but the furniture itself. Make sure your furniture not only fits the size of your room but can also comfortably seat your family or regular guests.
Tip #3: Do not be afraid to mix furniture sizes:
There is no rule against pairing a sectional with a loveseat and accent chair. Playing with varied sizes of furniture can bring a much-needed dynamic look to your living room. But again, make sure you have got those measurements handy. It would be a shame to realize that your new sofa blocks an entrance to the room.
Tip #4: let Rug to the magic to the room:
Adding a rug to your living space can bring a fresh new color to your living room, making it feel like an entirely new place. Conversely, removing a rug that`s been there since you moved in may be the change you have been looking for. Rugs can play a major role in altering the style of your living room; but because of that, be careful of which rug you choose and how it is placed.
Tip #5: Bring more or new lights in the place:
Sometimes all you need to create a fresh perspective of a place is a little light. Adding lamps to corners and end tables is a great way to brighten the room while allowing you to see your living room in a whole new light, literally!
