1. Arrange Your Room around the Sitting Area
One of the best decorating tips by interior designer DD Allen is to first pick where you want your main sitting area to be in a room, and then decorate the rest of your items around that. Featured in House Beautiful magazine, this tip is one I think is simple and very useful! For instance, if you have an open floor plan like we do, you may find it difficult to fit a couch, love seat, recliner and a television in the room if the area is laid out awkwardly with the kitchen or other adjoining rooms. You don’t want your guests walking straight into your sofa, or leaving the kitchen and walking into a room face to face with the television. Instead, pick where you want your sitting area to be and focus on moving the other items around that so things will be cozy, accessible, and easy on the eyes.
