Tip of the Day- How to Place Furniture

Think outside the box when deciding where to place furniture in a space.  Furniture doesn't always have to be placed against the walls.  Sometimes the best way to utilize a space is to place the furniture away from the walls.  Reasons for this could be space allotment, traffic patterns, design or storage options.  Placing furniture on an angle to a wall or in a grouping in the center of the room are sometimes a better option in a space.  Try different furniture placements to determine what works best in the space.  For more great ideas visit www.cheapchicdecor.com.

A question that comes up a lot is "How do I bring a Mediterranean feel to my space?"

Tip of the Day- The Right Height Coffee Table

When shopping for a coffee table keep in mind that the height of coffee tables varies.  Average, traditional, cocktail tables are usually 16”-20” high, while the height is usually lower about 12” for modern designed tables.  It is important to match the style of the decor in the room with the coffee table you choose.  It would look awkward to place a low sleek modern table with traditional styled sofas and chairs.  For more great ideas visit www.cheapchicdecor.com.
