Tips for Arranging Your Space


Whether you're giving your room a complete overhaul with new pieces, or you just want to rearrange the ones you have - it can seem like a daunting task. With so many things to consider as you move your couch to the opposite side of your living room, or your bed to the other corner, here are a few tips from your local furniture store at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Start With Your Tape Measure

It's time to grab the tape measure and take the measurements of your home. This is the first step to arranging the furniture in your space. If you don't have a long tape measure, you can always measure your foot, and then walk the distance heel to tow across your room. Now comes the fun part. Grab the dimensions of the hallways, stairs, and doors that are leading to your room. Sometimes just getting a piece into the room can be the hardest part of the whole process.

Mix and Match the Size

You can create the energy of a room by mixing and matching the sizes of the furniture. If you want to create an energizing living space, you can combine both large and small pieces all at varying heights and lengths to make the room come alive. If, however, you're trying to achieve a room that is relaxing and tranquil, you'll want to choose pieces that are all similar in size.

Symmetry Or Not?

When creating balance in your space, one of the things you have to keep in mind is the difference between symmetry and asymmetry. Asymmetry is an imbalance, like two candles that are slightly different sizes next to each other. While symmetry implies that things are the same. Symmetry is also very restful, while asymmetry is used to add motion and excitement!

Create Gestalt

"Gestalt" is what happens when you create a total look, feel, or form. It goes together, flows, and becomes a unified whole. Large rectangular rooms can be challenging to do this with because there's a lot to manage, but you can separate them out into manageable spaces and create smaller spaces that make one unified whole. If you have a large space, don't be afraid to make smaller spaces within it. From sitting nooks to dining areas, or entertainment spaces - you can be as creative as you would like.
