Women are mostly expert in mixing and matching furniture and things around the room. When they are in charge, even the bulkiest piece has its own space. Yet, in our years of service, The Peterson Group Bespoke Condominium and Residences, expert in providing best luxury condominium and residential to expatriates in Singapore, Jakarta, Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Hong Kong, has witnessed even the most creative women struggle on arranging their own furniture. The interior designs may not be in their liking or they may be finding something which is lacking. For whatever the reason, all of us experience the dilemma on furniture arranging every now and then.
1. Don’t put everything by the wall
The common mistake of small apartment owners is to keep every item they have by the wall to create a larger space to move in. The sofa may be pushed up against the wall along with the other cabinets and near the fireplace. Except if you fancy shouting at each other across the room, its high time to rearrange. Try ‘floating’ your sofa in the middle of the room near the fireplace to create a cozier and more comfortable conversation area.
2. Take Advantage of the Magic of Lighting
Lighting is one of the most important elements of space. A dark corner can create an impression of dead end. Lighting and its placement can maximize the size of the room. You can use a lamp and a chandelier at your disposal. Besides, you don’t want your guest to complain much of the dark areas in your space.
3. Don’t be afraid to mix and match various sizes
Every object has a height, depth and width. To add visual interest to any space, incorporate a variety of furniture with different characteristics. If you're going for a serene, unchallenging area for rest or recovery, keep the furnishing volumes in a room similar. A small lamp can complement a large sofa or a queen size bed can steal the focus out of your small drawer.
4. Create a Focal Point
Most condo owners ignore the warning of visual overcrowding and stuff their rooms with ample amount of items which steal each other’s visuals. Focus on one thing and layout your room around it. Create your own focal point by hanging a large piece of art on a wall or create a vignette of favorite objects on a console or bookshelf.
