If you'd like to take a more advanced approach. you can compile groups of similar items. then arrange those groups in three. Note the coffee table in the picture above. Although full. it keeps from looking cluttered by leveraging the rule of three. The top of the table has three distinct groups: books. other. books. Mix and match textures to give your couch a warm and cozy feel. Three textures. three times the fun
The principle also applies to furniture. How much do you really sit on that chair? Could it be replaced with something that folds up and is put away when you don't have company?You might also want to invest in larger furniture. which seems counterintuitive. But when you have a small chair and love seat. they actually take up more room because you have to leave space between them.
Invest in floating shelvingFloating shelving creates a whole different dimension of storage.
A small sofa could go under that awkward outcropping. That corner behind the chair could be home to a floor lamp.Unused floor space under the stairs? Get creative! We've seen everything from chairs and reading lights. customized bookshelves. foldout desks. and TVs added to this space. Of course. a much more common (but much less fun) use for this space is basic storage.
