December 21st, 2007 · No Comments

So you are moving into a new house and are excited about the long awaited change. But have you thought about how you are going to set up all that costly furniture you purchased from your favorite furniture store? Without a good plan and a lot of patience, you might soon start worrying about the issue of furniture arrangements. You will have to decide upon the best way to arrange all your furniture in order to ensure a good utilization of available space.

Arranging furniture can get particularly daunting, as you not only want to utilize the available space in the best way, but also to highlight your beautiful furniture. So before you decide to throw that house warming party, give the arrangement of furniture some serious thought.

Let me help you with your work in order to give you a head start on the unavoidable process of furniture arrangements. Whenever you decide to arrange furniture in a room, make sure that you have a plan. You should be able to decide which one of your furniture will be the center of attraction in the room. If, for instance, you want your favorite recliners to hog the limelight, make sure it is the central feature of the room. The rest of your living room furniture can be arranged around this main focus. This way, you will be able to carry out your work faster and get a room of your dreams.

Naturally, you may not want to make one of your furniture, the central point always. The focus could be on any other aspect of the room like the fireplace, the Plasma TV, a large painting or even the best placed window. The point is to have a central object, and arrange the remaining furniture around it. Another important aspect is the arrangement of sofa sets. Try to arrange them in such a way as to encourage conversations. So there should be room enough for the occupants to be comfortable but the arrangement should be cozy enough to make people feel conversational with others.

Also the placement of table is important as it should be easily accessible from every chair. You do not want your guests to have to walk half way across the room to access those yummy snacks. Yet another aspect of arrangement is that the room be well lit, especially in areas which will be most frequented. Since the sofa sets will likely be occupying the maximum space, try to keep the area well lit.

When it comes to arranging the bedroom, the focus more often is on the bedroom set, so you can arrange your side tables or chairs around it. Let there be enough room to walk in the bedroom. Often with a large bed taking most of the space, the room becomes chock-a-block with just a few furniture items taking up all the free space. You could decorate the room with simple pieces to keep it looking welcoming and elegant.

Thus if you have a simple plan of action, you can make your house the epitome of a heavenly abode. With elegant furniture placed strategically to attract attention to the best features of your home and the house itself well lit, everyone will soon be clamoring to get an invitation to your house parties!
