Re-arranging your furniture


An easy way to recreate your room is to simply move the furniture around. You can make your room feel good as new by simply re-arranging the furniture. An effortless way of doing this, and without breaking your back, is to draw a scale diagram before moving anything around.

Step #1

Decide on the that scale that you want to use. An easy scale to use is 1m: 4cm (for every meter measured, you will draw 4 centimeters). Draw a scale diagram of your basic room structure; include the door, windows and other permanent fixtures in the diagram.


Step #2

Now draw scale diagrams of your furniture on a separate piece of paper, and cut them out. Remember to keep the same scale for all your measurements.





Step #3

Play around with the scales in different positions, keeping in mind walking space. Walking space is essential, as you don’t want to feel like you cannot easily walk around your room. Keep in mind how far doors and cupboards will swing open.

Windows are a great way to bring in natural light and can change the whole feel of a room, make sure that these are not blocked.
Also, if you happen to have a television set in your room, you may not want to put it opposite a window in order to avoid the glare.

Step #4

Now that you have placed the furniture on your diagram in the perfect spot, it’s time to move your furniture around — just once. You may be left with some open space that could need filling; a nice way to use this space is to buy accent furniture.

This principle can be applied to any room in the house.

Step #5

Sit back, relax, and enjoy your new bedroom.
