Room Furniture Layout

Rightly placing the furniture units makes a huge difference in the appearance of the room. There might be various units of varied dimensions that need to be occupied in that place. So, you need to consider the space available and the maximum units that can fit in. Finding other areas to fit in the rest of the objects is the best idea, instead of dumping all of them in the same space. Let’s get to know more about some basics of room furniture layout.

Arranging in the Living Room

The living room is the primary area of the house, which is why it is essential to arrange its furniture in the best possible way. Firstly, you need a proper conversation area. Creating a “U” or say, a “C” shaped sitting area is the best idea. Many go for an “L” shaped area, which is much inconvenient. For this, you can have a “C” shaped sofa to fill up a spacious area; complement it with a set of same-colored throw pillows and rugs. You can also go for an “L” shaped sofa and get a set of 2 – 3 chairs that can be placed together.

The accent piece or the focal point of the room could be the entertainment center, a fireplace mantel, or the bay window. So, place the sofas and other seating units facing this focal point. The next important point is to keep the entrance free; do not place any furniture piece right at the entrance. Placing the largest piece first and then, playing with the rest of them is an easier way of deciding the layout. You could also place the entertainment center first, and then arrange the rest of the pieces. For the living room, coordinating the colors of curtains or blinds, rugs, carpet runners, pillows, and the rest of the furnishing with each other and with the wall paint colors, as well is important.

Arranging in the Bedroom

Well, this is the most favorite area of the person whom it belongs to. It’s like “my space” for this person, so first decide what all “you” need to have here. You need to decide how you wish to arrange the bed, wardrobe, dressing table, and the bedside tables. According to the aforementioned rule, firstly decide the placement of the bed. You can place this facing the large window, instead of placing it against it, as many do. While you rest, you will have a beautiful view from this window. You can either place this, touching the wall, and add a stylish headboard, or place it in the center of the room. This is a classic idea to opt for, in case of a large bedroom.

Next, place nightstands besides the bed to balance the look. You can place the wardrobe behind the bed in case it’s in the center. While placing the dressing table, make sure that enough area is free in front of it. Also, make sure that the furniture is arranged in such a way that there is enough space for at least two people to dress up comfortably. You can also add cabinets, floating wall shelves, a table and chair, if space permits. One of the modern bedroom plans is to complement the furniture units with a lot of elegant and textured pillows and ultimate bedding, along with rugs, curtains, valences and have a grand looking area.

Furniture layout is an important part of interior decorating. Make sure that you get in good quality pieces and that in decent colors to match the rest of the home decor. Adding lovely accessories to the different sections of the house will give the finishing touch to it in entirety.
