Tips and tricks for home styling

It’s important to have a plan and a clear vision of the style you like and what your budget is. Without this you won’t have a starting point, may feel overwhelmed and it’s likely you will be second guessing your choices.

Create a focal point

When space planning your layout, try to create a welcoming focal point with furniture. For example; when you enter a room it’s nice to be greeted by a striking artwork or an inviting sofa facing toward you. You don’t want to enter a room to be met with the hard corner of a furniture item jutting out or even the back of a sofa if you can help it.

Maintain a good flow through

Consider how you will move through the space. You should be able to enter and exit freely without bumping into anything. Ensure traffic routes into other areas are left open.

Design flexibility and multi-purpose furniture

Selecting furniture that can be used in different ways is useful to consider. For example, occasional furniture that can be shifted or rotated when entertaining guests could be advantageous if needing a different layout scenario.
