Modern or contemporary furniture tends to come in space-saving, angular contours, making them more suitable for homes with smaller floors areas. While this feature allows them to be versatile, it also makes them look a bit off when placed in traditional houses, as these have wider yet empty floors.
Knowing how to arrange furniture pieces is a major key in making contemporary sets look beautiful and at the same time functional in any home. The right arrangement not only puts the pieces in the right places, but also makes them most useful without becoming a mess on the designated floor area.
When arranging modern furniture at home, below are some useful ideas:
1. Create a floor plan first. Before anything else, you have to decide what you want to do on your floor space. Do this by making a mock-up of your home via a floor plan. A floor plan gives you a top view of the area in which you are going to place your furniture, thus you are able to see which areas to cover with furniture and those to leave empty for movement use.
2. Find the focal point of the floor space. What do you want to highlight in your designated space? You can do a combination of wall and furniture, or the just the floor itself, it’s up to you-as long as you find the balance of the elements you want to place inside.
3. Divide spaces. If you are going to place modern furniture in large rooms, expect to have extra unnecessary floor space available. Better divide spaces so that you can make both functional with the furniture pieces you have.
