6 Hacks to Arrange the Furniture of Your House

Selecting and arranging the beautiful furniture properly is considered as half work done while designing the interior of your new house. All the rooms in the house are of different sizes, so the way you choose to align the furniture decides how unique and comfortable your interiors will be.

Check out these furniture arranging tricks made just for you-

  1. Know the Size of Your House

    The size of your furniture should be according to the size of your room. No matter the size of the house mismatched arrangements can lead to problems like overcrowding or underutilisation of spaces.

    For small and big houses, firstly, scale the size of your house, and then design the furniture. And the final look should be proportional to the size of the house.

    When you have small spaces, do not try to cram too many furnishings in one place because it will overrun the small room, and look chaotic & crowded. We suggest you buy multifunctional furniture that can fulfill many purposes. For example- sofa-cum-bed, convertible chair bed, or multifunctional folding table.

    For big houses, try to use every corner of your house, so it gives an aesthetic look. Do not spread your furnishing all over. Instead, divide the whole area into different sections where you can put all the furniture in one area while leaving plenty of open space for keeping other utilities.

  2. Use Underutilised Spaces

    Using the underutilised space is ideal for solving storage problems, especially when you have a small space. You can start this with simple shelving solutions. Look at the space left over each door of your house.

    It can turn out to be a treasure trove for storing purposes. Create a shelf in that space and add the items you do not want to use. For example, you can use it for keeping your woollen clothes during summers and vice-versa. This will make space in your regular wardrobe, and you can easily find things when they are needed.

  3. Organise Your Furniture

    Furniture doesn't have to be oversize just to use a space. Large furnishing quickly overtakes the whole area. So, it is better to organise your furniture well. For example- instead of using a bulky sofa, use smaller settees because they are flexible enough to move and fit in multiple spaces. Also, you should keep cutlery and dinner set in the visible cabinets. So, everybody can easily find them whenever required.

  4. Kitchen & Dining Area

    Designing cabinets for your kitchen area can be a tiring task. You should opt to build your own cabinet and save money. The best idea is to go for vertical cabinets of different heights, this will give you enough space for keeping daily use articles.

    Depending on the available area, design your dining table. It is not necessary to fit it inside the kitchen or next to the kitchen. If you have a small space, you can look for options like a folding centre table. It will also serve as a dining table. Also, keep kitchen equipment like a toaster or microwave in the dining area and it will be easy for you to serve food.

  5. Bathroom

    A bathroom layout is an important part of your home. A typical bathroom is usually small in size, and you need to design it cleverly so that it looks good and comfortable at the same time.

    To make it organised, you must build a storage unit that has several compartments to keep all your bathing products in one place. Also, you must add a drawer for keeping your bath linens. To make more space in your bathing area, avoid keeping your washing machine inside the bathroom.

  6. Bed Room

    Design your sleeping room in such a manner that it has enough space even after you add all the furnishings. Arrange your beds conveniently, and do not forget to add a bed box while designing it. Most of your items can be kept in it. Also, you can add a small storage box with it to keep your daily utilities like specs box, water bottle, medicines, etc., on it.

    If your bedroom has less space, then a bed with drawers and boxes can be used as a substitute for cupboards. Try to eliminate old-styled irrelevant furnishings which only occupy space and are of no use. Replace them with multipurpose furniture.

    Also, we suggest you buy a home insurance policy that covers all the furnishings of your house.

Are Furnishings Covered Under Your Home Insurance Policy?
