5 Simple Decorating Rules for Furniture Placement.

It occurred to me recently when I went to a clients home to discuss some new ideas for layout and style that furniture placement does not come naturally to most people and simply re-arranging your furniture can make a massive difference to the feel of your space.

Ask yourself, is your furniture still in the same place that the removalist put it? Have you put your sofa against the biggest wall just because that seems logical? There are some simple ways to get a brand new look and feel without spending a cent, here are some simple rules!

1. Choose a focal point.

It doesn't have to be a TV that's for a start although it can be. It could be a fireplace or beautiful window with a view. Choose a focal point and stick with it.

2. Don't push furniture against the walls

This is a biggie! The size of your room will obviously dictate this rule but give your furniture some breathing room. There is absolutely no reason why your sofa has to be hard up against a wall, even bringing it out by a few centimeters can make a huge difference, it will make the room feel larger. Of course if you have a large room make sure you bring all the furniture into the center creating conversation areas leaving several meters between the wall and furniture.
