Advice on Furniture Placement

How To / November 28,2013

Furniture placement is more than functionality. How the furniture is set up helps create the ambience and conveys your feelings within a space. Getting the layout of your interior right is easy with this advice from experts at Homedit.

  • Allow around a metre's space in high traffic areas such as kitchen spaces and hallways. This gives people room to easily move around furniture.
  • Arrange living room furniture around a focal point to encourage interaction and conversation. This might be a large window, feature wall, the television or a fire-place.
  • Experiment with different shaped furniture, such as oval tables, to achieve an instant change in the room's flow.
  • Large angular furniture, like dressers, look best in their own space. Giving the piece its own wall or space allows furniture to become a focal point, rather than just another object in the room.
  • Decorations look great when grouped together. A collection of small vases is more effective when displayed together rather than scattered all over the room.
  • Hanging artwork too high can distort the viewer's perspective. When hanging art above furniture, make sure there is enough space between the items to avoid feeling cramped.
