The ultimate success of decorating any room depends upon clearly identifying your goals for the space as you begin. In your early planning, focus on functionality as well as style to arrive at an ideal arrangement .

Whether you’re redecorating or simply rearranging and refreshing a room, before you start choosing colors and buying new furnishings, take time to map out the room as a whole. Draw a floorplan in a consistent scale and add furnishings in the same scale.

LARGE FURNISHINGS

ADDITIONAL FURNISHINGS

Begin by sketching in large furnishings such as sofas, easy chairs, and armoires on your diagram. These key pieces will determine what other furnishings are needed and how you might use pieces you already have. Then, plan for traffic patterns around them.

Ask yourself how the room will be used, and which additional furnishings will be needed - occasional tables, ottomans, lamps, storage pieces, extra chairs, and so on. Consider adding furnishings that increase the functionality of the space, such as wall shelving for storage or a table that doubles as a bar during parties. Plan for area rugs after all furnishings are in place. To anchor a seating group, a rug should be large enough for all the furniture to sit upon. If that’s not possible, use a rug slightly larger than the coffee table.
