As we think of interior design, lots of space is traditionally believed to be a benefit. There’s hardly any homeowner who wouldn’t dream of big spacious premises that let you implement almost any design idea you want. But empty space becomes a drawback when it disrupts the symmetry of your interior and leaves the entire place look incomplete – at best, and in worst cases – lonely and desolated. Moreover, tastes and preferences do differ, and when it comes to interior styles, some people prefer cozy dens rather than big spacious premises.
There are various ways of furnishing an empty space. Here, we have outlined some of them, starting with the most easy and approachable ones:
Consider available options
Does your empty space really need furnishing? Take a look at your room and think of available options. In many cases a small rearrangement may be enough to make furniture accommodation in your room more harmonious and symmetrical. If any part of your room is cluttered or has furniture items standing too close to each other, it makes sense to distribute the space between them more evenly. Maybe one or more room of your home is overfurnished? If so, choose a furniture item that might fit into an empty space (it may be a console table , a chest of drawers or a coffee table, for example) and reposition it. This simple trick may help you avoid unnecessary purchases. Of course, it only makes sense if all rooms of your home share the same design theme.
Believe it or not, a room may produce and impression of emptiness when it lacks a focal point, that is, an interior element that would dominate the entire space and center other elements around it. Surprisingly, this doesn’t necessarily have to be a piece of furniture. A big leafy plant, a vase or a fancy home sculpture may also do the trick. If an empty space in question is located near the window, consider getting a set of beautiful heavy curtains that would instantly create a focal point and a sense of comfort and coziness.
Combine style with functionality
If all of the above is not the case, start thinking of purchasing an extra piece of furniture. Of course, apart from looking attractive, it should have a functional destination. Sit back and carefully think of what you need. A vanity – for a bedroom? A sofa-bed for a living room? A credenza – for a dining room or maybe a set of cute nesting tables? If the empty space in question is large enough, you may go as far as accommodating an entire functional area there, for example, you can set up a recreation zone with a sofa and a coffee table in a large kitchen, a library in a living room and a big storage unit for kitchen utensils in a dining room.
Do radical refurnishing
In some cases an empty space means the available furniture is simply not fit for the room in question. There is a radical solution – get rid of the old furniture by selling it at an auction, take measurements to correctly estimate the room’s dimensions and shop for complete furniture set that will suit your needs in terms of size, style and functionality.
Of course, unless you’re looking for antiques and collectibles, it makes sense to shop for complete furniture sets in big retail stores, such as Furniture in Fashion.
