Not every room is created equal, and some spaces feature dimensions that can be difficult to work with while trying to optimize your furniture. Check out these tips for how to improve your room layout so you can get the most out of your furniture and your home.
Create separate zones to break up a large space
Many people dream of having a large, grand living room, but big spaces can actually be tricky from a design standpoint. You have to find ways to fill the space creatively without making it look overstuffed, or spending way over your furniture budget for unnecessary pieces. In order to make a spacious room feel complete, consider finding ways to include distinct areas that are anchored by their own furniture arrangements. This could be anything from a smaller seating area with chairs and end tables to a home office space. Our personal favorite anchor piece is rug placement! Rugs are essential in defining multiple areas in one big room, without seeming cluttered.
Use streamlined furniture to make a smaller room feel airier
If you’re trying to design a layout for a smaller room, you have an entirely different issue—how to get the most utility and style out of limited space. One of the best ways to do this is by choosing furniture with a slim footprint, and thankfully our options from designers have never been more plentiful. Additionally, make sure you are using window treatments that aren’t bulky and don’t make the room feel crowded. Instead, try a light colored window panel with fabric thin enough that allows light to stream in and naturally create that airy look you are going for.
Introduce balance into asymmetrical rooms
Asymmetrical rooms can be quirky and unique, but they also require a little special care and planning in order to make the best use of the space. If you want to highlight any of the areas that are asymmetrical, try creating a focus point with a grouping of furniture or statement art pieces. To add some symmetry where there isn’t any, create lines in the room by using lamps, stylish area rugs or window treatments that can balance out awkward spaces you don’t know what to do with.
How to reconfigure furniture for a narrow bedroom
Narrow bedrooms are quite common and present an interesting challenge: how can you create space in the room when you have to include a bed? In order to make the room feel larger, try placing the headboard of your bed against one of the narrower walls, and add some seating such as a bench or chairs near the foot. Another useful tip is to place a large mirror on the opposite side wall to increase the sense of space.
