7 Brilliant Tips for Organizing Your Furniture like a Pro

1.  Start with a Focal Point

Want your house to look like it’s designed by a professional? You can do it with a bit of guidance, creativity, and effort. The first thing to do is decide on the focal points for each room.

Tips to consider when choosing the focal point:

      • It doesn’t have to be the center of the room
      • The focal point for each room varies from another
      • Don’t be afraid to use a corner/ window/ wall/ fireplace as a focal point
      • Consider the overall dimensions and shape of the room

Some rooms have a natural focal point- the most attractive part. It can be the huge window that shows a glimpse of Denver or the home theater screen on the wall. Go with it.

2. Don’t Clutter the Space

It’s tempting to use all the furniture you have and mix up the old and new. But hey, slow down a little. Filling up the room will clutter the space rather than showcase your findings. No matter how massive a room is, it will look stuffy and cramped (even if you arrange the furniture) when there are too many things to look at.

      • The minimalistic arrangement makes the room appear bigger
      • Let the carpet be visible under the furniture
      • Less is more in smaller rooms
      • Think of the atmosphere you want to create

Don’t give in to the urge to flaunt all your collection. You can rearrange the furniture and change the décor easily if there are fewer items to move around.

3. No Furniture Against the Walls

Many people think that pushing the furniture right up to the walls will make the room appear bigger. That’s not true. In fact, the middle of the room will appear hollow. Irrespective of the size of the room, you need to leave at least a tiny space between the wall and the furniture. It will create an illusion of a bigger room. Moreover, there are many advantages of leaving the gap empty between the wall and the furniture.

      • It’ll be easy to clean behind the couches, shelves, and wardrobes
      • The walls won’t be marked, stained, or damaged by furniture
      • You can see the initial signs of weather/ water damage on the walls
      • The furniture will not be affected if the walls suffer from moisture/ water damage

4. Consider Ease of Movement

How do you plan to walk around in the room? Is the path from the door to the couch/seating arrangement free of items? Is there a risk of tripping over something in the dark?

      • The furniture should not obstruct the traffic flow
      • The route from the door to the focal point should be clear
      • Don’t create too many zigzag paths
      • Don’t keep pointy or edged furniture close to the walking path
      • Don’t line up expensive and breakable items along the path
      • There should be space between the seating arrangement and coffee tables

You need to pay extra attention to the ease of movement if you have kids, pets, or elders at home. A simple tip to remember is not to complicate the arrangement.

5. Think Beyond Squares and Circles

Be creative when arranging the furniture and ensure that the symmetry is not disturbed. The arrangement doesn’t have to be in classic shapes like squares, circles, or rectangles. For example, you can arrange the furniture in a triangle with two couches angled towards the corners. Balance this by lining up chairs or placing a day bed on the third side.

Tips to maintain symmetry in the room:

      • Distribute the large and small items evenly across the room.
      • Don’t fill up the center of the room and keep the rest sparse.
      • Don’t stuff tables or vases into the corners
      • Balance straight lines by bringing a rounded centerpiece or vice versa
      • Try not to add too many heavy shelves to the same room (unless it’s the study)

6. Don’t Block Natural Light 

Denver has all four distinct seasons, and you should make the most of them. If your room has windows that allow bright light inside the house, make sure not to block the windows with furniture. A dark room feels smaller stuffier and can even trigger unease in some people.

What if the room doesn’t have windows? Brighten up the space by adding different types of light fixtures. Ceiling lights, wall lamps, floor-standing lamps, table lamps, etc., are some ways to lighten up a room. Don’t use them all in the same room.

      • Don’t put heavy furniture against the windows.
      • Use mirrors to reflect light from one part of the room to another.
      • Go for level-wise artificial lighting to make up for the loss of natural light.

7. Bring It Together 

You must decide how you want the room to feel. Living rooms need to be inviting and comfortable. Bedrooms should be cozy and relaxing. But these are generic statements. You need to determine what kind of atmosphere you want to set in a room.

Bringing together the furniture and decorations requires thinking and imagination. Don’t be afraid to move them around if the initial arrangement doesn’t have the feel.

Here are some tips to complete the look:

      • Choose the suitable artwork to go with the setting
      • Soften the edges by adding cushions, throws, fresh flowers, etc.
      • Invest in a high-quality floor rug
      • Set up activity zones in the same room
      • Work outwards from the focal point
      • Tables should be within arm’s reach

6 Tips to Choose the Best Local Furniture Store

Choose Best Furniture

Updating your wardrobe is easy. But frequently changing your home furnishings isn’t. Before picking the right furniture for your home, you need first to find the right local store. This article will help you choose the best local furniture store.

1. Contact Friends and Family

Nothing can replace word-of-mouth, especially if those words come from your trusted close circle. Has someone in your family recently furnished their home? Chances are they already know the best local furniture store in your city. It makes sense then to contact them and learn more about their experience.

      • What made them choose that specific furniture store?
      • How was their experience?
      • Would they revisit the same store if they wish to repurchase furniture?
      • How was their customer service?

You may still have doubts about their recommendation. But then you can always visit the furniture store yourself. Instead of scouring the city for local furniture stores, you now have a name on your list.

2. Read Online Reviews

Who doesn’t read online reviews these days? Skipping online reviews is not an option for today’s generation, even if buying home furnishings from a local store instead of an e-commerce website.

There are so many places to find online reviews of the local furniture store, such as:

      • The store’s Google My Business Page
      • Business directories such as The Yellow Pages
      • Other third-party reviews sites like Yelp and Trustpilot
      • Reviews on social media, especially Instagram and Facebook, where people discover local businesses every day

Sometimes, it can be challenging to tell a genuine review apart from a fake review online. However, if the overall ratings and reviews seem positive, do visit the local furniture store, especially if they have professionally handled customer grievances, if any.

3. Set Aside a Budget

Buying furniture from a department store requires a budget that differs from buying from a local furniture store.

How?

It’s simple. Department stores feature mass-produced furnishings that are less expensive compared to one-of-a-kind pieces. So, if getting an antique table is your priority, then department stores are out of the question.

But do set aside a budget you’d need to purchase an antique, rustic piece from a local furniture store.

To determine a range of budget, you can:

      • Visit the local store’s website
      • Browse categories like seating, tables, home furnishings, etc., and note down their prices.

This way, you won’t be disappointed when you pay an in-person visit to the store. Remember, there will be additional expenses, such as delivery charges and taxes.

4. Determine Your Preferences & Goals

Remember that episode from Friends when Phoebe wanted unique furniture for her apartment? And she got upset when Rachel essentially turned her living room into a catalog?

Even if you haven’t watched it, you get the idea here. Each individual has their style, taste, and personality. Their ambiance in their home, office, restaurant, etc., reflects that personality.

If this matters to you, choose a local furniture store that sells:

      • Reclaimed home furnishings
      • Vintage and antique pieces
      • Custom-built furnishings that blend personality and functionality
      • Pieces that have rustic architectural elements
      • One-of-a-kind furniture designed by artisans from around the world

At Rare Finds Warehouse in Denver, Colorado, this is what you’ll find. Quality is another important factor here. Visit a local furniture store that sells home furnishings that will withstand the test of time.

5. Scan the Inventory

This is important for new homeowners. Chances are you’re looking to furnish the entire home. In that case, you want to choose a local furniture store that has all the categories. Take Rare Finds Warehouse in Colorado, for example.

They have everything from dining tables, lighting, wall decors to entertainment centers, sofas, and tabletop accessories. It would be tedious to explore every local store in person. You can, instead, scan their inventory online.

In fact, on the Rare Finds Warehouse website, you can:

      • Take a virtual tour of their Denver store
      • Explore their architectural salvage, vintage furniture, and one-of-a-kind items

If you can find every piece of home furnishing that you’ll ever need, why drive around the city hunting for various items?

6. Look for Stellar Customer Service

You want to choose a local store where the staff is dedicated to helping you. This is the hallmark of a top furniture store. Employees, there aren’t pushy.

Instead, they assist you during the process by:

      • Answering your queries
      • Walking you through the inventory without being pushy
      • Recommending home furnishings that suit your personality or existing home décor

They have the skills, experience, and knowledge to do so. Read reviews and request recommendations to determine whether you can hope to experience stellar customer service. To experience it yourself, knock on their door and see for yourself!

After all, you’ll need their customer service post-sale too.

Key Takeaways

Here’s how you can choose the best local store to buy the furniture:

      • Get first-hand accounts of the store from your friends and family
      • Read online reviews on Google, social media, and third-party review sites
      • Figure out a budget
      • Take your personality and style into account
      • Assess the quality of home furnishings sold
      • Gauge the inventory online if they have a website
      • Determine if they have excellent customer service
