In life, one wishes to find love, to form a family and to transform their house into a loving home. The rest may sound easy once the hardest part is out of the way – finding a soul mate, however, creating the look of the home is much like searching for many soul mates, (or should I say taste mates) in the form of furniture pieces. Plus, now you’re looking for something to match the taste of two. Although it’s difficult to do this without asking for professional help, it’s not impossible, you just have to follow a few simple rules.
No interior-designer ever said that it’s important to have a spacious and enormous house in order to feel cosy, but to have a good arrangement of the rooms and the smaller, additional premises. What matters the most is to perfectly plan the layout of your house to best meet your needs and the desires of everyone involved. However, the way you will furnish your house should be a reflection of your personal preferences.
The first thing you should pay attention to is the functionality of the movables. One should never save on big interior items that are frequently used in the household, such as sofas or corner beds. They are kind of a focal points that give structure to the room, and are used by everyone, everyday, whether you are having guests or the family is just lying around and relaxing. Don’t hesitate to get a nice, modern corner lounge that will adorn your living room, especially if you follow the latest interior-design trends.
When it comes to functionality, think about the position and the layout of every other piece of furniture, and bear in mind that the best way to position them is at about three inches from the wall, (this also includes the modern corner lounge) as this creates an illusion that the wall is further away than it really is. This way, the room immediately looks bigger and wider. What is more, keep the furniture away from the doors, the windows and other entrances, so that they cannot block the smooth movement around the house. But remember, you should first fit the large pieces of furniture such us dining tables or corner lounges into the room, and then you can manoeuvre the smaller ones.
If you like to elongate the appearance of a particular room, the answer lies in the details. You can do this by choosing stripes as the pattern for some decorative items, such as rugs or sofas. Use designer curtains to give your home specific nuance of vogue, and throw a pillow or two in front of the fireplace. This will make your home cosy and welcoming, and you’ll be the favourite host amongst your friends and relatives.
