There are plenty of furniture organizing rules out there. On paper, these rules might sound great and in some instances, they work like a charm. But you have to consider the fact that just like any other person, every piece of furniture and even the house are just as unique. As such, in some cases, these so-called rules might not apply. As a result you’re bound to make some furniture arrangement mistakes. It gets even worse when you have no guidelines to follow which means the situation gets even worse and the mistakes more obvious. To save you from the utter joke that you’re about to turn your home to, here are some of the common mistakes that you might end up making and how you can rectify them.
Wall Flower Furniture
One of the best laws when arranging your furniture is to put them against the walls. It helps to free up space. But, if sticking the furniture against the walls makes it hard to have a conversation and you practically have to shout to be heard, you might want to revise the arrangement. It works great for small apartment but for bigger ones, you might want to try something slightly different. You want to get a more welcoming and conversational friendly environment. For this, try tag the sofa closer to the fire place and have the others floating around it. You have better spacing that is more conducive for a talk or chat.
Over-looking your limits
It is a common error for someone to be blinded by a great piece. It is like buying a dress. You go with the intentions of buying only one dress and leave with the entire store. With furniture, more or less the same case can happen. The only difference is, while you might throw your old clothes out to create more space, you can’t expect your house to grow by another 50 square feet to accommodate the extra pieces. It is always essential to make sure that you make the right selections and measure out your space before you buy the furniture. Also make sure that you measure the furniture to make sure it will fit your space before it leaves the store.
Kicking out zoning
This is for homeowners that have quite a bit of space to work with. Large rooms can be challenging for you to dress up. Instead of filling them with furniture, you can cluster your different pieces to create different areas for different activities. You do not have to think of putting up walls, the distinction that the furniture creates should be more than enough for one to see the difference. It also allows you to have different pieces of different designs giving your rooms more diversity.
Other common mistakes that most people will make is having a bed that partially blocks a window. Not only does it look weird even from the outside but also encourages uneven fading. Most homeowners also have a phobia against stepping out of their comfort zone. In most instances, people will keep to their conventional designs and furniture which sucks out all of the fun.
