Before you break a sweat arranging and rearranging furniture, it is crucial to have a furnishing plan in mind. And, while this plan is entirely up to you, you’ll have a better chance of success if you establish a clear focal point. This can be anything that strikes your fancy: televisions, windows, fireplaces, even people. Once deciding this, the placement of furniture and the different types of furniture needed will become exceedingly clear, saving you hours upon hours of stress and back-breaking work.
Once the seating area has been set (around the focal point), placing tables and storage cabinets is next. In a living room, the main coffee table or ottoman can be placed in the middle of the sofas and chairs. It’s best to allow 18 inches between a coffee table and sofa so drinks and the tv remote are within reach. Sofa tables are long, narrow tables that go behind a sofa, against its back. Side tables go next to the armchairs and on either side of the sofa. Be sure to allow at least 30 inches between furniture pieces in places where people need to pass through.
When creating your own rustic look, you have so many options to choose from. You can dress it up with antique chandeliers and romantic candles, or keep it simple with burlap accents and upcycled farm materials. If you balance your space just right, you may even be able to alternate between these two options simply by adding or removing a few accessories as the seasons change. However you approach your new rustic décor, remember to keep in mind how you want to feel in your new space. Also consider if you will be primarily hosting in this space, or if it will be a personal escape from the everyday.
