Why does furniture matter?
It may sound obvious, but furniture is so important when it comes to interior design. It works as a functional element as well as creating a sense of order in a chosen room. Furniture provides a context for the room and information on the purpose of the space.
Always think about how you would like to use the room before you begin designing. For example, if your kitchen is a large open plan room will you be entertaining a lot and therefore need plenty of seating. Or will you utilise the kitchen itself and need more worktop space for cooking and baking?
Furniture can also add interest and a talking point to your room, depending on the style and size of piece you choose. On top of this, furniture matters as it creates a flow of movement. Allowing enough room to move between furniture items and giving some ‘breathing space’ is something people often forget to think about. Getting it right may involve some trial and error before deciding on the final position. Remember that people like to have room to move, think and breathe so don’t cram too much in one area!
