As an adult, having your own place is a great achievement, but furnishing your new home can be overwhelming — especially if it’s on the smaller side. Before you end up splurging on furniture that doesn’t contribute in any practical way to your already small living space, take a moment to organise your creative interior design ideas and check out our 4 simple house decorating ideas!
Know your measurements and create a floorplan
Start by measuring your rooms and creating a floor plan. This will give you an idea of how much space you have to work with and make it easier to decide where to place your furniture when decorating your house. Once you have that sorted out, it’s time to start looking for your dream furniture!
When selecting your furniture, consider its shape as well. For instance, a square coffee table may be more practical than a round one because it fits better into corners. However, you shouldn’t let space constraints stop you from creating your dream home either. For example, if a full-sized dining table is not feasible with your current space situation, why not opt for an extendable dining table like the Party Extendable Dining Table or a smaller cafe-style table like the convertible Harrison Coffee Table/Dining Table, Voss x Grit Foldable Dining Table or Ceramic x Gala Dining Table instead?
