The key to arranging your furniture is to keep proportion top of mind. A small side chair might get swallowed up a spacious living room with vaulted ceilings. Likewise, if the bedroom is on the smaller side, a king size bed may not be the best choice.
There are many tools that can help you arrange your furniture online. You can enter the dimensions of your room and your furniture and play around with different layouts—little muscle required! PlanYourRoom.com and Better Homes & Garden’s Arrange A Room are just a couple of examples.
If you tour a home for sale and discover your current dining set is the wrong shape for the floor plan, don’t automatically cross that home off your list. Buying a few new furniture pieces might be worth it in the grand scheme of things. Consider your priorities. Don’t give up an amazing $250,000 home over a $500 table!
