Selecting the right furniture and paint will only get you so far. Effectively arranging the space is equally important. An open feel is crucial. Survey the lines of the room. If there are visual or physical blocks that make the space difficult the navigate, address them. While it may not be possible to have large areas that are free of furniture, choosing narrow pieces can be a great option, especially if the furnishings are space-enhancing, such as the acrylic coffee tables below.
Even if your living room poses no spatial challenges, the small space tips below can make your dwelling even roomier! One of the oldest tricks in the book: go with a small coffee table. Below we see a square wooden piece in a room designed by John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross. Notice how the space has an open feel thanks to an absence of large furnishings in the center.
Many home furnishings companies have reproduction lines that recreate the nostalgic and retro looks that we all love. If you decide to use authentic period furniture from garage sales, hand-me-downs or from vintage stores, ensure you are safe when painting, refinishing, or changing the look of old furniture. Especially children’s furnishings can have lead based paint, toxic varnishes and also can have safeguards that are not in place as modern children’s furniture. Keep this in mind if you’re refinishing old furniture or plan to buy children’s cribs, changing tables and other adolescent furniture.
