Arranging the furniture in the right manner ensures that the room area is efficiently used, and the energy can flow freely. Figuring out the best way to utilize space and create a comfortable atmosphere can be difficult in small spaces. A good arrangement can also highlight a favourite piece of furniture or object, with some planning and creativity it can be accomplished easier than you think.
Before you move anything, you have to decide what the focal point of the room is going to be. Focus your efforts around that location or item. Before arranging furniture in the room, decide on what will be the focus of the room then centre your furniture around that focal point. It can be anything a fireplace, a window, a TV or painting.
Chairs should be placed within about eight feet of each other to encourage conversation. Position a table in such a way that it is easily accessible from every chair. Keep a lamp near the seating area. Coffee tables should have a clearance of about 14 to 18 inches from the sofa. Side tables should be at least as tall as the arm of the chairs or sofa to make serving easy and avoid accidental spills. When arranging furniture, make sure you provide enough space to move around the room, with bumping into things.
In a multipurpose room, arrange furniture in a way that you divide the room into separate living and dining spaces. A strategically placed sofa or curtains hung from the ceiling are simple and inexpensive ways to accomplish this. Make sure the room stays balanced and that the sections or divisions don’t fight one another. Rugs are also a great way to define areas and groupings. Small pieces can easily get lost in a large room, so be sure to group them with larger pieces.
Keep the room free of clutter, not too many ornaments as they collect dust, place flowers and plants around the room and remove anything that is dying, dead flower heads are not attractive and stagnant water is defiant no go.
Have scented candles placed around the room, use throws and cushions in matching colours too add a feel of being cosy and welcoming.
The decor is important, use colours that make you feel calm and centred, light and airy for small rooms. Pick colours that suit the size of the room, large rooms can have bold colours, overly bright or dark colours will seem oppressive in smaller rooms.
Don’t forget your crystals place them around the room with clear quartz near anything electrical to absorb the energy, place them in the windows to reflect the sunlight and to keep them charged and energised.
Sage rooms especially if you or anyone has had an argument to dispel any negative residual energy, open the doors and windows and let in the fresh air.
The more love and care you put into your space the more people will notice how calm it feels when they visit and the happier you and your family will feel.
