Among other factors, the location of furniture has a large impact on the characteristics of comfort and functionality of the house. Every home is different and requires a slightly different solution, based on the type of furniture you have and in the use of each room. Although there are several possible ways to accommodate furniture, follow some basic principles can help you avoid common mistakes and get the most out of your space.
The first thing to take into account to accommodate any room furniture is functionality. Think what the room will be used and if the furniture can meet those needs. For example, if the main activity is the entertainment quarter, make sure the electronics are near a power outlet and that the seats are in front of the television. In rooms used for other entertainment, make sure there are enough spaces for placing drinks near the seats so that people do not have to go through very narrow points to go from side to side of the room. Leave 2 to 3 feet (0.6 to 1 m) of space around functional furniture such as beds and dressers. Check your drawers, cabinet doors and cupboards, external doors and windows are not blocked or reach with difficulty.Read More
