It’s always a good idea to order samples when possible. From wallpaper and paint, to flooring and fabrics, you should always order several samples before committing to any specific material. Place the samples together and visualize how all the elements will work together in the room. Save yourself a lot of time and expense by making educated decisions.
It’s very important to make sure there is room to move around in your home. For example, you should ideally leave about 18 inches between sofas, chairs and coffee tables. This gives you plenty of space for sitting and moving around while still having everything and everyone close.
