Arranging your furniture. Arranging your furniture can be difficult but it doesn't have to be if you follow these simple rules: Firstly, never block a window or doorway and make sure all pathways around the room are clear. Secondly, put your side table or coffee table near the seating area. Thirdly, within a conversational area make sure that the seats are no more than three to four feet apart.
What's on your floor can add to the decorating style, but if you can not afford new floors in your living room then you can mask your current floors with small rugs with a contemporary design - either a geometric print or a plain sisal rug. If you are lucky enough to be able to afford new floors, check out bamboo floors or slate or clay tile. Sleek lined furniture with chrome accents goes nicely with this look and you might try shopping at consignment stores if you are short on cash.
You have the choice of using patterns, bold colors and other styles that you think would look good in the rooms of your home. Geometric patterns work the best with rugs that are used for decorating. You can also use Navajo rugs for rustic or Southwestern themed rooms in your home.
