Whether you have carpet or hardwoods, a focal area rug helps to pull together the overall design of a room. Be sure to size the rug appropriately for your space. Many times, this means making sure that the seating[sofas, loveseats, sectionals, accent chairs, etc.] overlaps the area rug at least half way. You can use the colors in a favorite rug to bring in accent items, throw pillows, or other decor into the space.
First, draw a box, noting the measurements on all sides. Whether you create it on a computer program or hand draw it on graph paper, having a scale floor plan is helpful for space planning. Most of the time, converting feet to inches at a 1:1 scale is easiest. For example, a living room that measures 16 feet by 10 feet would convert to a 16-by-10-inch box. Then measure any furnishings that you’ve decided to include and create a separate uniquely-sized box for each piece. If drawing by hand, one idea is to create paper furniture cutouts (to scale) so you can play with different furniture arrangements.
There are plenty of shelving options available in all kinds of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. There are shelves that hang, shelves that are built into your walls, or shelves that stand free so that they can be placed anywhere. With the right shelves, you not only clear up storage issues, but you can compose a great design. You can expect to spend $20-$25 per linear foot on shelves made from basic wood materials. If you do the labor yourself, you can save some money. Professional labor could you be between $30 to $60 per hour of their work.
