5. Rearrange the Furniture
This one may seem like a no brainer, but it’s often overlooked redecorating. The placement of furniture should be thought out with function, comfort, and cooperation in mind. The ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui asserts that everything has a perfect spot in relation to its qi or energy. Furniture pieces should work together based on the purpose of the room they’re in.
One trick for updating a living room is to get the sofa and chairs off the walls and float them in the center. This allows for more intimate conversation and easier movement through the space.
