8 Furniture Arrangement Tips For Homes For Sale

Are you planning to put your house on the market? By following these 8 simple furniture arrangement tips, you’ll be able to showcase every room in your house in the best possible way. 

1. Define the purpose of each room.  The purpose or function of a room should be clearly evident and the furnishings and their arrangement should support this function.

2. Open up pathways.  Allow at least 3′ for comfortable passage.

3. Edit the number of furniture pieces in a room.  Remember that home buyers are buying space, not furnishings.

4. Place furniture groupings around a focal point a room.  Placing your sofa opposite the focal point will set the rooms anchor; everything else will revolve around that.

6. Use furniture that is in proper scale with the room and also well proportioned with the other pieces in the room.

7. Do not block a great view with furnishings.
