Tips for Arranging Your Rental Furniture

Arrange Your Rental Furniture

If you’ve just moved into your new home and don’t know where to start when it comes to arranging your rental furniture, we are here to help. We know it can be very difficult to visualize the layout of your room and how your rental furniture will look in your new space, so we have developed some guidelines to help steer you in the right direction and improve the look of every room in your new home.

Measure Up

Take careful measurements of every room in your home. Determining the size of your space is vital when you are arranging your rental furniture because if you do not measure your room, then you may end up with an overcrowded floor plan. Use a tape measure or measure the length of your foot and walk heel to toe across the room and note down these measurements. You should also measure the size of any entryways to your home so you know if your rental furniture can fit through the door

Think about Sizing

Now that you know how much space you have to work with, you can focus on arranging your rental furniture. We recommend that you keep similarly sized pieces together. When furniture pieces of different sizes are all placed next to each other, this can make your space look cluttered and uninviting. So curate your rental furniture by size, keep the smaller pieces next to other smaller pieces and use larger pieces in corners, so they don’t overwhelm your room. We recommend using a floor lamp in corners because they are able to create the illusion of more space to smaller rooms by drawing the eye up and getting rid of dark corners.

How Big Should it be?

Every seat in your home should have easy access to either a side table or a coffee table. Room layouts that force people to move out of their seats to get their drinks are uninviting. A coffee table should be about an arm’s length from the seating area and roughly the same height as any chairs surrounding it. Side tables should be the same height as the nearby chair arms to make getting the TV remote a breeze.

Breathing Space

One of the most important things to consider when you are arranging your rental furniture is the room’s traffic flow. Make sure that there are a few feet between your coffee table, chairs, and any other pieces of furniture so people have a clear path to walk through and don’t trip over something when trying to pass through the room. 

It’s astonishing how much furniture affects your lifestyle and the atmosphere of your home. We hope that you found this guide useful. If you are looking for rental furniture in Shippensburg and the surrounding area. then please visit our showroom today and browse our selection of rental furniture.
