Pushing Furniture Against The Wall 

Its easy to put your furniture directly against the wall especially if you live in a smaller apartment in Miami or Los Angeles. Despite popular belief its actually better to give your dresser or tv stand some breathing room by allowing a few inches between the back and the wall. When placing the dresser in the bedroom you also do not want it to collect dust and be easy to clean, this is another great reason. Therefore you can also place a mirror on the wall instead of sitting behind the dresser attached to it.

Focal Points 

Some homes have a natural focal point such as a built in fireplace with mantle or a big standout window but other times we have to create it ourselves. We have some perfect products that can do this, our Live edge solid acacia wood server can separate the extra space in a dining room or spare room and become the perfect focal point. In your living room most people tend to gather around the tv so why not include a tv stand. Even if your tv is on the wall, sitting a tv stand under it can also really help create focal point in the living room. Its also a great piece of furniture to decorate for the big Holidays such as Christmas or thanksgiving.

Arranging furniture 

When arranging furniture in your living room consider both size and placement. If you have big pieces of furniture next to small pieces it can feel lopsided and unsettling. Its good to have a variety of shapes and sizes in any room, you can use side tables like our Uma White Weathered Wood Side Table  to decorate them extra spaces in your room. You also want to arrange the furniture in your room to to flow with traffic. Your visitors do not want to be trippin over furniture when passing through the room. For an example if you have a sofa with curved seating its good to pair it with a rectangle or squared coffee table.

Choosing The Right Rug 

We have a great selection of rugs and in 2022 we will be releasing hundreds more. Its important to use them in the correct way, area rugs belong under the furniture. Our rugs from MODWAY come in 5×8 and 8×10. They are usually big enough to cover most furniture, exposing some flooring around the edges of the room is fine but try to make it big enough to cover the whole dining set or sofa.

Using a big coffee table as a centerpiece 

If you are using a coffee table as your focal point bigger is definitely better. Using a large coffee table in the middle of your seating area is a decor staple. It can act as an anchor for the room for you place drinks and center your conversation around. This is obviously as long as you have enough room in your living room, if you live in a smaller apartment you want to keep your furniture pieces a little smaller. If you cant cover the entire sofa with a coffee table its a good idea to have some matching or different side tables to hold drinks when you cant reach the main table.
