Furniture arrangement should consider seating comfort and lighting.

Apartment dwellers need to make the most of the space they have in their dwelling, especially if the same space serves different purposes.


Instead of pushing heavy furniture around a room, an easy way to come up with a new arrangement is to put it down on paper. "It's helpful to make cutouts to scale of your furniture," recommends IdeasForHomeDecorating.com. "You can then easily move them around on the plan."

 

The architectural features of a room - a fireplace, archway to another room, windows and doors - play a big role in how furnishings are arranged. They may be treated as a focal point or part of an area set aside for a particular function, such as grouping seating around a fireplace or building a seat under a large window, the website advises.


Wooden blinds work well in a room with stained wood trim, and can be matched to the particular shade of the trim. They are a durable and sophisticated window treatment.


Another consideration in furniture placement is the source of lighting, whether natural light coming through windows or artificial light from overhead fixtures and lamps.
