It’s the first and most important point that you have to think before starting to decorate your place. Draw the furniture layout. Is it creating a sufficient comfortable circulation zone? Is it creating a good conversational area?
A bad furniture layout can kill the beauty of space.
While choosing the type of furniture, assessment of the space is very important. Buy furniture that fits your space. It will become much easier for you if you will draw the space with dimensions on a piece of paper and then decide the furniture.
Mark the type of furniture you want to place in that room with sizes. It will help you to visualize the space in a better way and will help you finalize the type of furniture that you have to buy.
If you are working in a smaller room, don’t hesitate to go bold with furniture selection. Adding one bold furniture will not only add an element in your living space but it will camouflage the room size.
For a bigger space, make sure you create a comfortable conversational zone. Place furniture in a way that a group of people can easily have a conversation.

The choice of color is personal. Be subtle with what you choose. Keep in mind, that painting the wall again is a tedious job. The color that you have chosen might last for a long time. And bright and dark colors might bore you after some time.
Choose neutral color palette, earthy tones like beige, tones of white and beige, etc. to paint the entire walls.
Adding colors and patterns through soft furnishing will be a good idea if you want to satisfy the need for colors in the space.
Tones of white and beige are not only eye-pleasing but they everlasting. They will elegance and charm, that luxury demands.
Soft furnishing in any space adds beauty to the place. Use different size cushion covers, throws and pillows to bring warmth and texture.
The layering of an area rug of different shapes over the full-length carpet can be one way to add texture to space and it always looks really nice.
The use of metals and mirrors in any space increases its beauty. Add a mirror work on any wall and you will notice the difference it will create.
You can use furniture with a metal base. They look really beautiful and elegant. The glossiness of mirror and metal increases the charm of the space and add a touch of glamour that you will always love.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on artwork, you can print out the image you like, and frame them. You are going to love how your space will turn out.
Be considerate while placing the painting on the wall. If you are placing the painting behind the sofa or a chair, start the base of the painting like 3’6″ from the ground.
If you are placing the painting above a console table or a credenza, take it 6″-8″ from the top.
