What types of furniture are best suited for small spaces?

The type of furniture you choose has a big impact on how your big or small your space looks and feels. Utilising different furniture shapes are great because they give the illusion of additional space in your room. For example, an oval table can make a room look longer than it actually is, while a round table creates an intimate setting. A square table feels more formal and makes it easy to seat multiple guests around one table, which is perfect if you're hosting an event in your home. Look for multi-purpose furniture with plenty of storage space when you have a small space to work with. This includes beds or sofas with storage, desks with built-in shelves and the classic ottomans or footrests with storage.

Which piece of furniture should be the focal point of my room?

Focal point is the term used in interior design to describe the most important piece of furniture in a room. This can be one piece or a group of items that work together to create an overall look and feel. The main role of a focal point is to give character and personality to your space and help unify all elements within it. Living room: In a living room, the focal point might be a rug or tall lampshade. If you don't have an entertainment centre with built-in shelves, then an oversized coffee table can also make a great focal point for your living room. Dining room: Focal points in dining rooms are usually centred around the table and chairs themselves, as well as artwork above them. If there's no artwork above your table, try using a large mirror or wall sconces instead. Bedroom: The bed is usually the first thing people notice when they enter a bedroom - so it makes sense that it would be the focal point here too! If you don't have a bedside table or dresser against one wall that could serve as a focal point, then try adding other items like lamps or mirrors instead.

How do I know which furniture to pair together?

You don't need to be an interior designer to know how to pair furniture. The secret is to follow a few simple rules and use the right materials. The easiest way to start is by using a basic formula that works for most rooms: Two pieces of large furniture (e.g. sofa, armchair), two pieces of small furniture (e.g. coffee table, side tables), home accents (e.g. wall hangings, vases) and finally rugs or carpeting. It's always best to do some research on what kind of theme you would like before you buy; view our blog for inspiration on a variety of trends.

How can I make my hallway more inviting?

A hallway is often a first impression for guests, and can be an important part of your home’s overall design scheme. A console table can help you decorate your hallway in an inviting way. It can be used to hold keys or any other items you may want to keep close at hand. Try placing a vase with fresh flowers on top of the table for added visual appeal. Lighting is important too; a gorgeous lamp with a shade not only creates ambience but can help tie in your colour scheme throughout your home.
