Going with the same theme of the wall colors, light colored furniture adds space to the room as opposed to darker colored furniture. Dark colored woods on furniture can shrink a room and draw your vision inward rather than out. Light oak colored wood has less vision weight compared to dark woods. Furniture with legs also gives you more floor space visual and allows you to see more of the floor, adding more square footage to a room where as furniture that sits directly in the floor, eats up flooring and makes a room feel small and tight.
In a small room, large furniture does not make sense. Large furniture instantly takes up vital space and closes in a room, however it isn’t just about smaller pieces, it’s about choosing the right smaller pieces that will help increase your room’s size and feel. Examples of properly scaled furniture can include the use of a small bench for a coffee table, smaller sized couch, chairs without arms and clear tables. One mistake that can be made is overdo the placement of small furniture and cluttering the room with too many pieces.
There are many different ways in which you can create a centerpiece focal point. Most people create their centerpiece on a main table in the room; a coffee table or sofa table. Depending on the design and area of your room, you can arrange your furniture so that you can have a centerpiece that is visible from all points of the room.
Placing multiple area rugs in different sections can give the appearance of having more than one space within a room. Mixing patterns and using eclectic designs like the berber/ boucherouite rugs pictured above can especially liven things up.
