Homes in metropolitan cities often face a severe space crunch. Owing to that accommodating your belongings and decorating your home at the same time becomes a task. Hence we’ve gathered a few tips that will help you arrange your furniture and make your home look spacious and beautiful.
1) Couch Space-
Give your couch room to breathe. Don’t back it against the wall completely. Leaving a little space surrounding the couch will create an illusion of a larger space. If you have a big room to your disposal, place the couch in the center facing the windows.
2) Right Lighting-
Spread light sources in a space and make sure every corner gets equal attention. If you have a lamp next to your bed, place two more strategically in the room to create a triangle of light. Lighting is one of the most important elements in a space.
3) High Curtains:
It’s best to hang drapes from ceiling to floor as it makes the ceiling seem a lot higher and expands the room. Don’t hang the curtains too low or make them too short as they end up looking like an afterthought.
4) Large center table-
Like rugs, a large center table can help expand and connect a room. An oversize table contributes more to a room in terms of both function and aesthetics. Also, center tables should be placed anywhere from 12 to 24 inches away from your couch.
Home decorating is a recognized art, requiring careful calculation of both: the space’s needs and the host’s tastes. Do it right!
