Essential Step 1: Evaluate
Look at your room
Now, assess the room for a few factors: The total amount of space you have and how much extra space you’ll have if you get rid of some items. How much space you’ll need for new items and finally, whether the room is multi-functional or not.
This is an essential step to any DIY home project, because it’ll give you an idea of how much you can change in the room and what elements have to stay.
For example, if your lounge combines the living room and the dining room, you’ll need to assess beforehand how much space you want to give to each portion, etc.
Once you have all of this information, you will be able to quickly determine what pieces of furniture are going to fit and which are not. It will straight away eliminate some options, mainly due to size.
Trust me, you will be thankful of this natural elimination process, when your walking through beautifully designed showrooms.
Then and only then, create a rough plan of how the furniture will be placed, taking into account the dimensions of the room and furniture items.
