7 Furniture Arrangement Tips

Where you place your furniture in a room will instantly set the tone for how you'll live in that room. Here are seven must-know tips for arranging spaces, whether you're relaxing, watching TV or chatting with friends.

Get Out the Tape Measure

The first step in arranging a space is determining its size. Use a tape measure to get the dimensions of a room. Or, a quick tip: Measure your foot and then walk heel to toe across the room. This is an easy way to estimate the basic size. Then, check the dimensions of the hallways, stairs and door widths leading to the space. This is the eternal challenge for a homeowner, being sure the entrance and egress of the room are large enough for potential purchases. Design by Jennifer Jones
