Experimenting with furniture layout will help create an interesting yet practical office space.
Furniture from elsewhere may work well in another room. Equally, items that have traditionally been in a room don’t necessarily need to stay there.
Scan your office for furniture swaps. Make a list of the items you want or need in your room.
Use the room plan technique to see how different furniture groupings might look on paper before moving heavy items.
Here are a few tips:
- Balance – a room where most of the furniture is squeezed into one area looks un-balanced. Draw an imaginary line through the room and balance the furniture placed in each half.
- Symmetry – this can help bring a designed feel to a room. For example, if a bookcase is placed to the left of the desk, position another to mirror it on the right hand side. You may not have the space, furniture or inclination to follow this rule completely, but it can inspire.
- Traffic – consider the most frequently used items in a room and the ease of access to them. In a kitchen, this principle is known as the ‘golden triangle’ and decides where to place the cooker and refrigerator in relation to the sink. Carefully plan your furniture moves and then go for it!
