Making your new place feel like home may be a big task. It ranges from getting to know your neighborhood to meeting new friends. But one of the simplest, direct tactics is to make your space comfortable and familiar by arranging your existing furniture.
Moving furniture is only complete when you have it set in your new home. Here are some ways to help you:
Use a Floor Plan
The best way to envision your furniture in the space is to have a map of it. This way, you can measure your large pieces and arrange them accordingly on paper. This is perhaps the best and most efficient tactic in your furniture moving process.
Think About Function
Make sure you know how you’ll use and live in the rooms of your new home. For example, if you think you’ll use your living room more for TV entertainment, you may plan to position sofas for that. But if it’s for hosting parties, you’ll want face chairs towards each other. Also, if a lot of foot traffic will be going through the space, make sure there’s enough of walking room.
Use Lighting Well
A room and its furniture looks only as good as the lighting around it. Therefore, it’s important to think about how you’ll make your interior design visible. Whether it’s floor lamps or ceiling lamps, strategically place them in the room to add an extra finishing touch.
Consider All Options
Sometimes you may know how you’ll arrange furniture due to your previous setup. However, it’s important to be open-minded and consider all type of arrangements so that you can find the best fit. If you add new pieces, it may call for a totally different approach.
