Living Room Interior Design Shopping Tips

No matter what your design style it’s important to always start with a floor plan of your space. That’s the only way to know exactly what will or won’t fit.

The worst thing that can happen is your furniture gets delivered and it’s too large or small. Either of these can be a problem.

Furniture that’s too big will not fit and have to be returned. If the furniture is too small it will be out of proportion and make your space look off.

Avoid this problem by measuring your space and doing a floor plan before you order.
