Our Vancouver-WA Interior Designer has experience in sharing that when it comes to measuring a room, it's always wise to measure at least twice to make sure the measurements come out the same. Take your time in selecting the furniture you would like to use for that room. Most of us fall in love with that piece of furniture only to find out later that it won't fit or isn't the appropriate piece for that room. Take time in deciding what piece of furniture you will use for that specific space and what colors and accents or color schemes you can use as a unit rather than individual pieces.
Your furniture needs to be arranged in a way that creates the appropriate feel and function for the room. Arrange furniture in a way that flows freely through one room to the next. For example, when you walk into a bedroom you want to be able to walk in and not be stopped by another object . Most important of all you need to choose on a focal point. Do you have a feature to focus on? Like a fireplace? Or maybe you have a nice view out of a large window? Or maybe you want the focal point to be your television. But you need to have one focal point.
Once you have our focal point chosen you can then decide on what pieces to use and how you can make it flow throughout the room. Vancouver-WA Interior Design can help you with your space planning ideas for any room you have in mind.

Don’t be afraid to try something different. In bedrooms, the bed is typically the focal point. Try to place your furniture around the focal point. Also, make sure to pull furniture away from the walls. People have a tendency to push all their furniture back against the walls, thinking it will make the room seem bigger. But all this does is make the room feel awkward. Pull your furniture away from the walls to create a cozier and more inviting space. This is for living areas, specifically couches and chairs. Try using a rug to anchor a sitting area. Rugs add character and visual interest and really help to anchor your furniture that you have selected from your focal point. Rugs should be large enough to extend partially under the furniture around it. Try to create balance in the room. You don’t want one side of the room to seem really full while the other seems empty. You don’t want to have all the massive pieces on one side and the delicate pieces on the other. Try to balance out the room so it seems equal on both sides. For example, you can anchor a couch that is out in the middle of the room with a console table, buffet, or dresser behind it. This creates balance and really adds a touch of character to the room. Small space design can be tricky, but not impossible. There are ways to make a petite space work well for you and look good at the same time. For example for large rooms where you want a sitting area, create more than one sitting area as this creates dimension and visual interest. For your main sitting area whether it be a living room or family room area create a smaller area in another part of the room. Don’t be afraid to divide up large rooms for separate purposes. You want the room to feel cozy and inviting and yet display your lifestyle with who you are this is where you can let your personality shine!
