However, a living space that is perfectly laid out, comfortable, have enough storage space and is pleasing to the eye, now that sounds hard to accomplish. Luckily, we as Born Furniture is here to show you how easy it can be to use your space properly.
You have to find the right balance in your space, you have to consider the colour you use, the lighting and the design. Colour has everything to do with the ambiance in a room. Choosing the colour for a room is based on the mood you want and how well the light supports that illusion. Using light colours will open a room and create a sense of space and dark colours contract a space. Therefore, use colours that suit your space.
Furthermore, create harmony in your space by considering balance and proportion. Balance the elements in your space, for instance if you have large pieces of artwork on a wall, pair it with a floor lamp on the opposite wall. The proportion of your furniture also should be considered.
Whether you are planning your living space for a new home or just want to change things up a bit, you have to understand the scale of furniture and its relationship to the room. Understanding this can help you create a comfortable and functional space. We can also advise you on the size of your furniture when we help you choose the right pieces for your room
Keep in mind the proportions of your furniture you want it to coordinate with the proportions of the room. Bulky and overstuffed furniture are overwhelmingly comfortable, however if your space is small large furniture will let your space seem overcrowded. Likewise, if your space is large and you use small-scale furniture the furniture will fade in the room. Therefore, use furniture that will suite your space.
Frequently used in most households are sofas. Buy a good-quality sofa that is durable, comfortable and maintains its look.

Another option is to use a Chaise or a window seat.
