If you’ve been thinking about a new layout for your bedroom, living room, or office, follow these steps to easily rearrange any space.
Go in With a Vision
Decide what you want to accomplish with the layout (space for a desk, kid’s play area, etc.). Find inspiration on Pinterest, Houzz, or other home design sites.
Measure Your Space
Accurate measurements of the room and furniture will streamline the process, so you don’t have to guess and check.
Draw it Out
Create a scale drawing so you know where everything needs to go. Let one inch equal one foot. Consider typical traffic patterns and leave enough space to access closets, outlets, and doors.
Use an App
Design apps can create a digital mockup of your new arrangement. Here are a few to try: MagicPlan (iOS, Android), Décor Matters (iOS Only),Room Plan Pro (iOS Only)
Incorporate Accent Pieces
Place accent pieces like candles, vases, or bowls on coffee tables, nightstands, and dresser tops to add a fresh new element to your space. Give your accents depth by using different sizes and shapes in your display. For example, try pairing a tall plant next to a small bowl or vase.
