5. Rearrange furniture strategically
The coziest rooms are ones that allow for effortless conversation. Rather than making one large circle around a single coffee table, use your organization skills to break up your living room layout into smaller areas for quiet conversation and visiting.
Here’s an example: angle your sofa toward the television or fireplace and set up two chairs facing each other over a small end or nesting table. Be sure to adequately plan for spacing, too – allow at least 30 inches between each piece of furniture.
Home is as much a feeling as it is a place – and with these easy organizing tips, your dwelling will bring you a sense of comfort and peace in no time at all.
