SCALE & PROPORTION
Scale and proportion are essential elements to consider when furnishing your living space. It’s important to choose furniture that complements the size of your room.
In a large space, bigger furniture can be used, but in a smaller space, every piece of furniture needs to be carefully considered to ensure that it fits in perfectly.
MAKE A SMALL SPACE LARGER
Choose lighting that can be attached to the walls. Forget about side tables and lamps for small spaces and try an arched floor lamp.
Choosing a larger rug unlike smaller rugs, the large size doesn’t visually break up the floor. This can also help anchor the space and give you a good staple piece to design the rest of the room around.
Choose seating with legs so more of the floor can be seen, making the room appear bigger.
“rule of thumb” – have as much seating as the property sleeps.
The living space needs to look great, and also needs to be functional and comfortable.
A large space can take a sectional while smaller spaces may opt for a love seat with matching armchair.
Invest in a high quality sofa. Leather is a good option as it will hold up to use over the years, be easy to keep clean and will come in a variety of colors.
