There are so many things to consider when you are moving into a new house. Arranging your furniture is usually further down on the list. If you’re trying to fill your new house with existing furniture for the first time or buying new furniture for your home, there are a number of things that you must take into consideration.


Some space are unique and call for unique pieces of furniture.

Some spaces may not work with your old, L-shaped couch, for example, meaning you might not want to haul it all the way there just to find out that it is useless in your new abode.


Here are some things you can do to make sure that your furniture arrangement situation goes smoothly.



1. Evaluate the Space Beforehand

The first thing you should do when evaluating the space in your new home is remove everything that is in there presently. Remove your moving boxes, trinkets, or other pieces of furniture that might be sprinkled around the room. This way you can get the most honest view of what your room might work best with.



2. Decide How You Will Utilize Every Room

An office should have a desk just as much as a living room should have a couch. Finding the best compromise between functionality and attractiveness is the key here. Let’s say that you are trying to arrange your living room.


You might ask yourself a few questions.


Is this a space that you want to be able to host big Super Bowl parties?

Is this maybe a space that you want to keep neat for formal occasions?

Is this a space that you want to keep open for an array of activities?


Each of these scenarios requires a different kind of living room setup.

3. Make Use of Home Arrangement Tools

There are many different arrangement and decorating tools available online to help you experiment with your space before ever lifting a finger. You simply enter the dimensions of your home, create a model of your specific space, and test out how different pieces of furniture would fit within different rooms.



4. Balance Your Room

There are things you can do to create feng shui in a room.

For example, it is recommended that you utilize all different parts of the room wisely. Pushing all of your furniture against the walls gets rid of depth and can make a room bland. In the same way, having furniture of the same height, size, or color next to each other, makes for a boring space as well.

Instead, use different patterns, colors, materials, and sizes, that all fit within a similar theme, to bring a room together.




Arranging furniture should be fun and exciting, not stressful. If there was one golden rule we’d recommend keeping in mind, it would be traffic flow. You should always leave a few feet of space to make sure that there is enough room for people to safely and comfortably move throughout your home.
