Do you need a SHIFT? {Somebody’s Home Interior Free Tips}

Often times a space only needs a few additions or shifts to feel “just right”. This Somebody’s Home reader shared a photo of her living room for the first example of this SHIFT feature. Check out the before and after photos and notice the difference a shift can make.

Here’s the breakdown:

Along with her photo, the reader shared the following regarding the layout:

Korean apartments don’t have  an interesting layout…. My living room is very square so I have hard time placing furniture. 

TIP: The challenge with this space is that there are many large pieces of furniture, making the room seem angular and small. Try omitting the armchair to leave the space more open; with an area rug under the coffee table and sofas, the room still feels anchored. Another idea is to get rid of the sofa against the window and perhaps replacing it with the armchair + a small side table; this also will make the room feel less cluttered.

What about you…are you in need of a space SHIFT?

  1. Thank you Christine! That looks so much better. I guess just a little bit of shifting helps a lot! I shall try your suggestion for sure.

  2. This is such an interesting feature! I love it Christine, The tips you offered are perfect and the way you communicated the idea visually is so helpful. Great idea and a great service for your readers 🙂

  3. Yes, great feature and idea for your readers. It was interesting to see how long it took me to see ‘the difference’. I spotted everything except that 3rd print immediately.

    I think your idea of moving the sofa away from the window and replace it with armchair and side table is perfect. Instead room to breathe!!

    Great post! x
