Our goal for our blog at Essential Rentals is to motivate you to consider making small changes in home decorating and furniture arrangements. If you try something different it can do wonders for the look and general feeling about your space, whether you’ve moved into a new home or you’re just hoping to refresh a long lived-in residence. The first step is to learn as much as you can about how to position furniture in a visually and mentally pleasing way.
Consider creating a healthy relationship between different items in a room, from clearance furniture to accessories and artwork. It’s advisable to think about the day-to-day function of a room before choosing which type of balance you want to achieve within it. When it comes to symmetrical balance, there’s two of everything.
It’s a very useful strategy that especially works well in bedrooms (like placing identical bedside tables at either side of the bed). At the same time, you can add exciting visual motion and interest with an asymmetrical approach. Two slightly different-sized flower vases placed next to each other on a countertop is its own worthy form of balance.
Based on the shape of the space you have to work with you have to customize your furniture arrangement. All rental furniture (and owned furniture) arrangements is supposed to have a certain totality or overall form. So for instance, if you have a long and narrow living room you can divide it into two distinct functional zones. So one half could be used as your entertainment center, while the other function as a dining room. As for the rectangular-shaped rooms, consider breaking them into squares for a less formal, more comfortable environment.
At last, triangulation can be used as a visual trick to create a sense of depth in any room. In interior design, you’d better apply strategies like positioning two end tables on each side of a sofa with a painting hanging over the sofa.
