Top 3 Furniture Placement Blunders Exposed!

Finding the Right Height for a Nightstand and Lamp First, your nightstand should be about the same height as the top of your mattress, give or take a few inches. Ideally, err on the higher side. Then, when choosing a lamp, you want the bottom of the shade to be about even with your chin level when sitting up in bed. That provides ideal reading and task light without glaring in your eyes.

Many new homes, as well as older homes, have long and narrow living rooms. These rooms can become problematic to arrange. Often we find ourselves questioning what type of furniture to put in a room such as these. If we arrange it one way, the television seems too far away. If we arrange it another way, the sofa is on one side and the chairs are on the other. The next thing you know, a lot of yelling is occurring just to have a simple conversation! There are many simple solutions to this problem. One suggestion would be to break the room up with several conversation areas. The sofa and chairs can stay on one side of the room with the television. And on the other side, try a small round table for two, possibly even a game table! How about a reading nook? Or do you find yourself with odd pieces of furniture that have been handed down from family members? Try using these pieces of furniture for storage! Dress them up with accessories and pictures. Try to soften the area with a rug, window treatments, or a small upholstered chair. Are these ideas still not working? Another idea is to put a desk in the room. Everyone needs a place to put their laptop or open the mail. What better place to do that than with your family and have the option to watch television. Is your room missing the key element of a fireplace? Try out an electric powered fireplace. There are several that have become beautiful pieces of furniture. They can also help keep your electric bill down if used properly. The key to making this room work is all about balance. If you have large and heavy wood furniture on one wall, make sure that the opposite wall is balanced out. Some simple ways to do this would be if there are several windows on the opposite wall. If you apply heavier drapery treatments, then the draped fabric will balance out the weight of the furniture. Or try placing your fully upholstered sofa across the room. Placing end tables and lamps with heavier bases next to the sofa will really help make the room seem cozy. Take a look at the layouts here that may be able to help you out.
