The first step towards transforming a house into a home is the process of adding some colour to the barren floors and walls by laying out beautiful items of furniture.
The act of decorating one’s house in a soothing and peaceful manner is not just a matter of luxury anymore but is rather a necessity since lives all around us have become so hectic and exhausting, coming home to a lovely, organised and harmony-filled environment and decor could be calming to the senses and somewhat therapeutic in nature as it will give us the chance to relax our minds and escape the worldly worries.
One of the most essential components of decor and furniture that one could fill their house with is tables and chairs. They are subtle pieces of furniture that can be adjusted in accordance with the rest of the furniture to make a room pop out with excitement and glow.
Tables and chairs are also the ingredients of a soothing home that can be made a part of multiple rooms like the living room, kitchen, and bedroom.
Hence, to help with the process, people can always get inspiration and take certain pieces of advice on how to organise the tables and chairs in each of these rooms to bring out a soothing vibe in one’s home.
Organising the Tables and Chairs
A Focal Point
A coffee table, by most people, is treated as an important feature of their living room around which they tend to arrange their sofas and television sets while also placing minimal yet impactful decorative items like small pots of plants or books and magazines on the table.
However, it is often necessary to select a focal point in the room that is in need of furnishing, in this case a living room. This focal point acts as the heart of the room and all the furniture in the particular room is directed towards this focal point including the coffee table and all the other tables and chairs.
Choosing a set of tables and chairs in the right colour contrast is another important step towards creating a soothing effect in the living room. The tables are mostly either wooden in colour or are painted in soft and light colours such as white, sky blue, etc.
Anything too gaudy or bright will be a stress on the eyes and could lead to a disturbing effect. Chairs follow a similar rule, however, they should be chosen in a colour that either matches with the corresponding table or provide a calming contrasting effect, for example, a set of black and white or any other combination as such.
Many contemporary living room designs include chairs as a solo item that is not paired with a table and this too can have a very calming effect on someone’s mood and mind. Such chairs are often adorned with decorative items like a small cushion and are directed at the corners of the room which gives the room a filled yet uncrowded and appealing appearance.
The art of arranging furniture in a manner that is believed to equip its environment with peace and positivity is an ancient tradition and although denoted as ‘feng shui’ in the Chinese culture, is actually a part of almost every other culture and ethnicity.
This can be applied to the tables and chairs too as the basics of feng shui and other similar practices lie in creating a space that allows easy flow and a sense of equal weightedness. So the residents can make sure to keep their arrangement clutter-free and aesthetic in order to awaken the sense of feng shui.
Decorating a home is not as daunting a process as many believe it to be. With the right amount and arrangement of furniture especially the tables and chairs, any house is capable of spreading a soothing vibe.
