Key Questions to ask yourself as you evaluate your space

  1. Do you like the shape of the room or will you need to create an illusion of better proportions?

  2. Does the room have enough wall space to allow room for all your furniture? If not, think of ways of dealing with the problem.

  3. Is the room a good enough size?

  4. If the room is small, consider using a light color scheme to make the room feel airier and bigger.

  5. Are the windows located in good places?

  6. Is there a lot of sunlight or do you need blinds or other window treatments. Is the view attractive or will you need window treatments to camouflage it.

  7. What is the focal point in the room?

  8. Is it the fireplace or a window?

  9. You can always create a focal point by installing a fake fire-pace or using a piece of important furniture.

Consider function and space when selecting furniture
Once you have analyzed the floor plan you can begin to think about the best layout for furniture.

Ask yourself the following questions just like the professionals do:
  1. How many people normally use the space? This will allow you to decide on the amount of seating

  2. What is the main function for the room and what else is the room used for?

  3. If you watch TV or eat in a room it will tell you what type of furniture you need. Remember, if a room is used for another purpose, for example some people also use the dining room as a home office.

  4. What is the maximum amount of people who may use the space?

  5. Will you need extra seating or tables or appliances to accommodate extra people?
