There are a lot of elements that go into pulling off an attractive and cohesive interior design scheme. Every detail from the color of your baseboards to the style of your floor lamps has the power to affect the harmony of a room and consequently, the way that people feel in your space!
Choosing the right size furniture is crucial to creating a room that’s functional, balanced, and visually pleasing. Follow these guidelines on your next trip to the furniture store to create an appealing, comfortable space where people love to be!
First and foremost, you need to make sure your furniture fits through the door. Write down the dimensions of the room itself and the locations and sizes of important features like entryways, windows, outlets, and built-in components such as a fireplace.
Create a blueprint of how you want to lay out the room that includes these measurements and designated sections for specific furniture pieces, so you know how much space you have to work with and how you want to use it.
Decide on the function of the room.
The way you plan on using your space should be the driving force behind how you furnish and style it. Is the extra den going to be a cozy area to curl up and binge your favorite show? Or do you plan on using it to entertain guests? Your answer is how you decide between a big comfy sectional or a small sofa that leaves room for one or two armchairs for extra seating.
Start with the focal piece.
After you take your measurements and assign a purpose to the room, the piece of furniture that’s going to be the most used/center of attention of each room is the first one you should choose. Once you have that, furnish the rest of the room with supplementary pieces and accessories that are in proportion to it. This focal piece needs to be accurately scaled to the room, or you risk throwing off the proportions of everything else!
Successfully resolving scale and proportion in interior design is a special craft that takes years of experience and training to master. If you’re trying to stage your home for a quick and profitable sale though, you don’t have that kind of time!
