Setting Up the Perfect Floor Plan

Whether you’re rearranging, redecorating, or putting a room together for the very first time, creating a floor plan that’s comfortable, practical, and attractive is hard work. Before you head to Buddy’s Home Furnishings, take stock of your room. Measure the room itself and any pieces you already have. This will give you a good foundation for planning.

Consider drawing the room to scale. This will make it much easier to visualize how things will fit. Take all the doors and windows into consideration. Take some time to note how the room moves.

Next, figure out what the room’s main focus will be. Is there are fireplace? Will this be the room where your family watches TV? You’ll want to decide on a focal point early on. Your furniture should be placed in a way that best highlights the focal point.

Start playing around with furniture configurations on your paper floorplan. How many pieces does your room need? Would a rent to own sectional provide extra seating space or would it make the space look cramped? Is there room under the TV for a rental sound system? You want to keep the room feeling balanced. This means that there should be roughly the same amount of furniture on one side of the room as the other.

Once you’ve got a decent idea of what you need, head to your local Buddy’s Home Furnishings showroom. There, you’ll be able to find affordable and stylish pieces to fit in any room with any budget. We’ve carefully curated our stock to both work seamlessly together and stand out on its own. This means that you can fill your room just how you want it and it’ll look fabulous.

The most important step in creating a great floor plan is to measure things out and visualize them. That’s why scaling the room on paper is so beneficial. Picking out furniture that you hope will fit is a quick way to a room that’s either cramped and uncomfortable or empty and scarce.
