Whether you are moving into a new house or deciding to give your home a major refresh, furnishing your space is a process. You need to decorate and buy pieces according to the size and aesthetic of each room while also thinking about functionality and cost. Working with what you have isn’t always the most practical option, especially if you have outdated, mixed-matched furniture pieces.

It takes time to put your space together and transform it into everything you envisioned, but there are some simple steps you can take to help speed up the process, saving you money and time.

Here are eight ways to simplify your furniture collection and make the most of your space!

1) Declutter

First things first, get rid of the clutter! Pick up the items in the room that don’t belong, clearing the space for only the essentials. If you’re in the bedroom, consider making a donation pile where you cleanse your space of the items you haven’t used or worn in the last year. Purging your room of the clothes you no longer wear could even allow you to skip out on purchasing an extra dresser leaving you more room to create a cute reading nook or workspace!  

2) Create a Room Plan

Create a blueprint of the spaces you have that need to be furnished. How much space is available in each room? What is the target audience for the space/ the purpose of the room? Go into designing your home with a game plan to ensure you get all the proper furniture in the correct sizes for the right purpose. Try using an online room planner to visualize the space and what it might look like once it all comes together.  

3) Choose a Color Scheme

Set the tone and theme for the atmosphere of the room you wish to decorate. Choosing neutral colours and tones on major items like sofas and loveseats is the most economical decision, so they don’t become dated in the future. Save the bold and trendy patterns and colours for the accent items so you can change things up from time to time.

4) Remember That Quality Is Better than Quantity

Furniture that is kept in good condition can last for many years. Furnishing a room takes up to a couple of pieces of furniture, so it would be more beneficial to buy furniture that is good quality and will last a long time instead of a lot of pieces that will only last for a short time. Good quality upholstered seating is especially important for comfort!

5) Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize!

Adding personality to a room is simple by using accessories. Wall hangings, family photos, decorative throw pillows, large floor rugs, ottomans, and mirrors are just a few easy ways to add colour, style, and personality to a room, no matter the size.

6) Add Greenery

Bringing the outdoors inside is a quick and easy way to revive your space, making it feel brighter and more colourful. Aside from adding a beautiful look to your room, plants and greenery will take up space, keeping your furniture selection limited without sacrificing aesthetics.

7) Find a Place for Everything

If every gadget, picture frame, accessory, pillow, and anything else you could think of has its own specific place, it will help you stay organized and clutter-free. It will simplify your home’s look and appearance while saving you money from buying unnecessary items that don’t make sense within your space.

8) Maximize Your Storage

Investing in furniture that does more than one job, like a daybed or a couch with built-in drawers or storage cabinets, is a great option for a space-saving design giving you a multifunctional living space.
