Furniture Layout Process

Choosing new furniture requires knowing the size of the space and exploring the options. In this exercise below I use a project for a client that purchased a vacation home with the plan to furnish it from scratch. I measured the space and presented several ways the space could be furnished.

The most common mistake that people make is purchasing pieces that are too big for the space. Avoid this by having a plan and understanding what will fit. A few extra inches too large can negatively impact a space.


  • There are usually several ways furniture can be arranged.

  • Adhere to the furniture sizes shown on the final design plan.

  • Don't overcrowd a room.

  • Compromises may be necessary to make the most of your space.

  • Mock-up the pieces in your space so you can visualize the layout.

  • Consider center pedestal dining tables for flexibility to add additional chairs in a pinch.

  • Less pieces are usually better than more.

  • Larger rugs are usually preferable to ones that are undersized.

  • If an odd rug size is needed consider carpet tiles, like Flor.
