Home Decorating Tip #9 – Give each room a function

Drinking Coffee

Give each room a function, and make sure that each function can be fulfilled in the room.

2 obvious examples:

  • The lounge needs seating, but also a coffee table for people to put their cups down. Try not to force people to do things they don’t necessarily enjoy doing, like holding a hot cup of coffee until it’s cool enough to drink. You can definitely make your coffee table a feature of the lounge.
  • The bedroom definitely needs a bed to sleep on. But it is really helpful to have a bedside table next to the bed, and even possibly a bedside lamp on top of that…

So, things to go shopping for today: Coffee tables, lamps and bedside tables… All very useful, and yet all necessary extras for the room they will go in.
