Size It Up
Properly furnishing your home has everything to do with adjusting your décor to the size and shape of your room. When you have a smaller space, it can be easy to look around and give up on having a beautifully furnished home. But the key is all in the sizing and proportions of your furniture.
One of our Ashley loveseats can give a room the same cozy look as a couch, but on a smaller scale, while armless chairs provide comfy seating without the bulk. Rounded tables also help save space and make your furniture easier to navigate around.
On the flip side, if you’ve got a room with more space than you know what to do with, go big and double up. Cushy couches with rounded arms, or even two matching sitting areas within the same room can help fill the space while keeping it all functional. So, get out your measuring tape and get started!
Sectionals are all the rage, and they’re the perfect seating solution for almost any home. Living room too big? They take up space and help create an elegant shape to your sitting arrangement. Living room too small? They eliminate the need for extra chairs cluttering up your floor space. Sectionals are a perfect option for entertaining and relaxing, and they come in just about every design aesthetic you can imagine. Sectionals from Signature Design by Ashley can help amp up your style and while adding a bit of structure to your living space.
Front and Centre
Pushing all your furniture against the walls is a major design misstep we see all the time. Some people think that by leaving all their floor space open, they’re making their spaces easier to navigate. But practically, however, it just makes the space feel unbalanced and inconvenient to use. When you’re shouting at your guests from waaaay on the other side of the room, then you’ll get what we mean.
Instead, pull your furniture away from the walls. It might not be possible to put all your furniture in the middle of the room, but even just scooting in your chairs closer to your couch can make the space feel more intimate and natural.
Mix and Match
Variety is the spice of life, and the same is true of home design! When picking your Signature Design by Ashley, one of the most important things you can do to create balance and visual harmony in your home is know when to throw off that balance a bit.
Pendant lighting of different lengths or chairs in different shapes and styles can actually help complement the overall feel of a room. Too much matching and symmetry can make a room feel tense and stuffy. Asymmetry creates visual interest and the kind of naturally dynamic look that makes a home feel really lived in. Couches and chairs of difference depths, tables made of different materials, and mismatched décor can all make your space feel vibrant and stylish. Signature Design by Ashley offers plenty of unique pieces that can bring your décor to life with taste and sophistication.
