Arranging furniture is an art— no, seriously, it’s one of the most important parts about interior design. Our furniture takes up the majority of space and helps make your home feel lived in, welcoming and complete. When choosing furniture for your living room, dining room or bedroom, it's important to pick timeless, functional pieces that fit your space and budget. Overdoing or underdoing, both can create a mess. You need to be precise when it comes to furniture. Thus, you always need to keep in mind these pointers while you plan to design your room-
Design your layout and draw it out.
Use a tape measure, meter stick to measure the length and width of your room. Also account for the dimensions of the room. You can sketch it out on notebook paper. Determine how much space you can spare for furniture and sketch out a few different ways that furniture can fit into the room. You should also factor in at least one yard of free space in between pieces of furniture.
Choose the right seating for your living room.
Generally living rooms contain a sofa, armchair, side table, and coffee table. Look for these basic elements before adding extra pieces such as ottomans and additional tables.
Use only necessary furniture.
Don't stuff in furniture. Put in what is important. If you can, push a chest of drawers into a walk-in closet to free up floor space. Arrange furniture to suit the way you use your living/dining/bedroom.
Start with the bedroom.
Do not place the bed where it obstructs a door into the room or a walkway through the room. We tend to place a double, queen-sized, or king-sized bed against the center of the wall opposite the main door to the room. With this arrangement, the headboard is the center of attention as you enter the room. Add bedside tables that are as big as space will allow. If you read or watch TV in bed, you’ll find these tables helpful. Consider carpeting all bedroom floors to reduce noise in the room.Add a lady’s desk — a small, delicately proportioned furnishing for writing letters and so forth — if you have room.
Moving on to the dining room.
Benches are a great space-saver in smaller dining rooms. Not only will they comfortably seat guests, but they can also be tucked away under the table after use, so they don't take up valuable floor space. Don't let a small dining room limit you; utilise every inch of space by adding wall-mounted shelving units and storage where you can display plants, ornaments, or simply store condiments like salt, pepper and sauces.
Go minimal when it comes to your kitchen.
To save a lot of space go for modular kitchen. Kitchen cabinets are the built-in furniture installed in many kitchens for storage of , cooking equipment, and often silverware and dishes for table service. Appliances such as refrigerator, dishwasher, and ovens are often integrated into kitchen cabinetry. There are many options for cabinets available at present. They help you stay systematic and also save a lot of space.
