Just in time for the holidays, here are a few tips to make your living space look bigger. Now that the vaccine rollout includes children, the holiday season will be full of get-togethers. Make yours perfect for the whole family by rearranging your furniture. Not only will your family thank you, but it will give you a chance to revamp your living space. Not to mention cleaning those hard-to-reach places.
Design Your Layout
Before you move anything, consider how many people are coming and what you will be doing. Meals need seats, but a dance party will need floor space. To fit the whole family, you should line seats against the wall, including armchairs and sofas. The most important part of your design is how people will move around. Make sure there is a path to the food, bathroom, and drinks. The more space people have to move, the less likely it is they will spill their food.
Invest in Some Furniture Sliders
Although most people think furniture sliders are for moving, they make great permanent additions. Furniture sliders will keep your floors from being scratched and make it easier to move furniture around.
Make Sure the Space is Functional
Functional space during a get-together means people can walk around enough to get drinks, food, or use the bathroom. It also means the space is not too hot or too cold while people are in the room. The more people, the hotter the room will feel.
Couches Should Be Against the Wall
To maximize the space in your living area, all seating that will not be at the table should be against the wall. More than likely, you will have more guests than seats at the table, but this way, there will be more space to move around. The back of the couch should be against the wall, preferably in any corners.
Fit As Many Seats As You Can
The most important part of a large family gathering has enough seating. If there are no seats at the table, young people are able to eat from their lap. The goal is to have everyone in the same room while they eat, but most people do not have that large of a space.
