Move Rogue for Effective Furniture Arrangements
Sometimes when you move into a new space, the layout is simply odd. There are partitions in weird areas and rooms which are too big or too little, and your furniture just doesn’t work the way it used to.
Apartment dwellers and homeowners everywhere struggle to match their beloved furniture in their new spaces — furniture arrangements in one home rarely interpret exactly to another. That is when you have to become creative. Ditch your preconceived notions of a living room, a dining room or even your own kitchen and make a setup that’s anything but ordinary!

When you’re blessed (or cursed) with a large, open space, how should you arrange the furniture? The typical L setup or setting sofas to confront each other simply doesn’t utilize the space to its full capacity.
Try setting sofas back for a smart arrangement which makes an excellent use of space and doesn’t block any gorgeous windows.
Putting your sofas back can make two rooms out of one with no distance feeling oversize and weathered.

OK, tiny-house dwellers, this is for you. You know that room — the room right inside the front door that’s cut into from the stairs. This room serves as the walkway to the kitchen and dining room and living room too. Yeah, that room. The one where you’re supposed to set a sofa on the long wall, but that usually means the sofa faces people entering front door and it just always seems kind of weird. Be courageous and scootch that loveseat over to the stairway wall. You might be shocked at how well it functions.
