3 Mistakes Homeowners Make When Arranging Furniture, Victor, New York

Every home is unique, and every homeowner has their own style and preferences. But no matter the furniture you buy, there are ways to organize that furniture to optimize your space and make your room welcoming, and there are ways to do the opposite.

Avoid These 3 Design Mistakes in Your House

1. Putting Too Much Furniture Along Your Walls

Many people like to put their furniture against their walls—it helps save space and makes your room look bigger. But in many cases, this can create spaces that are too spread out. For example, if sofas and chairs are too far apart in your living room, it can make it difficult to have a casual conversation with those around you. Having chairs and tables against your walls can also make it difficult to move around the room. 

2. Not Considering Your Room’s Use

FurnitureThe placement of furniture in a room doesn’t always have to be based on conventions; it should be geared toward what the room will be used for. For instance, a person who likes to read books before bed might want a beside table to the left of their bed and a bookshelf to the right. Similarly, a person who enjoys movie nights in their living room with family and friends may gather multiple seats around their entertainment center.

3. Choosing Only Bulky Furnishings

Bigger doesn’t always mean better. If you can get by with a love seat instead of a sofa, save space and avoid the bigger option. If a smaller end table or a slimmer entertainment center can still fulfill your needs, use them instead of their larger alternatives. Not only will you prevent your space from being crowded, but you leave yourself the option to add new furnishings later on.
