Do you feel cramped in your space? Is your living room just not big enough? Stop thinking about square footage, and focus on furniture placement!
Lori Green is a designer at our Greenfield store, and is part of our Decorating Solutions program. She has a simple but important tip when it comes to balancing your space. If your home lacks square footage, Lori suggests, “Break up the room with furniture placement. You can flow from one room to the other with a couple of the pieces placed in the right spots.”
Here’s an example of one of Lori’s projects:
She explains, “The sofa faces the fireplace, and the wall-mounted TV and the dining room setup balances the space. There’s a soft cream counter height table, and with the other cream color accent chest, that piece then bridges the rooms together but doesn’t clutter the space. Then, use the right wall accents to pull everything together. This client still can walk freely around the room because of the furniture placement.”
Don’t get stuck in a furniture rut–move it around and let the room breath! Check in next week for another #DSTipOfTheWeek.
