One of the most important parts of interior design is the arrangement of furniture in your space. The functionality and flow of your apartment really depend on the placement of key pieces of furniture. Take a moment to read these tips for apartment interior design, and make figuring out how to set up your new place a really fun part of moving into a new apartment.
Sketch It Out
One interior design tip from the experts: Sketch out possible furniture arrangements on paper before you start moving furniture around the room. Sketches will help save your floors and walls from potential scratches, and your back from moving your heavy dresser for the fourth time. Measure your room and your big ticket items – couches, beds, shelves, etc. – and then sketch out a couple of different options. There are several apps and computer programs which can help if your artistic skills are a little rusty – give Home Design 3D (iOS) or Floor Plan Creator (Android) a try!
Don’t overcrowd your apartment with unnecessary furniture – try to use only the most needed pieces of furniture for each room. Using fewer pieces of furniture is an interior design choice that will make a room look more open and spacious, which can be very important in small apartments when there isn’t a lot of extra space.
Function Before Form
Make sure to think about your lifestyle while planning out the flow of each room. For example, if you watch a lot of TV in bed, you aren’t going to want your TV and entertainment stand in the living room. Don’t forget to plan your walkways as well. If you constantly find yourself running into pieces of furniture as you move about your apartment, you may need to rethink your apartment’s interior design.
