If your room is starting to feel a little small, your furniture has been in the same spot since you moved in, or you’re feeling dissatisfied about your furniture, it might be time for you to consider rearranging some things. Even if you enjoy your current furniture arrangement, any environment will start to grow stale and have less of an impact on your mood over time. Eventually, a setup that you once found fresh and innovative will seem tired and wanting.
Why it’s important to refresh your environment
Changing things up can renew your energy, lift your mood, and allow you to examine your surroundings from a new perspective. Furniture plays an important role in how we define our homes and lives - and saying goodbye to a previous arrangement and welcoming a new one can give you an emotional fresh start. Here are a few ways that you can give your space the update it needs and get the most out of your furniture.
Take advantage of room layout apps
Mobile devices have made it incredibly easy to digitally envision your room makeover before you even move a single piece of furniture. With these simple-to-use tools, you can see whether certain pieces will work together. Of course, you won’t be able to entirely get a sense of how the room will feel until it’s done, but these apps can help you avoid some missteps before you’ve done too much work.
Measure your pieces and spaces before moving anything
The best advice you can get when it comes to furniture is “measure first, move second.” Our eyes have a way of deceiving us into thinking that things will fit when they won’t. Save yourself the hassle and put your trust in tape measures.
Work with larger furniture first to get a sense of space
If you’re trying out certain arrangements that you aren’t sure about, it’s always best to begin placing the larger pieces first. The big pieces such as sofas, dressers, and entertainment centers will play the largest role in defining the space, so it makes sense to get them situated in spots that work before filling out the room with smaller tables, chairs, and accessories.
Incorporate new elements beyond furniture
Your new arrangement doesn’t have to be limited to furniture. This is the perfect time to try out new art pieces in spaces, move around pictures, and incorporate elements of feng shui into the room.
