Arranging your furniture becomes much easier once a focal point in your room is established. Your main furniture pieces are best directed towards your room’s focal point, keeping the major traffic areas open & easily flowing. You should aim to have a balance of furniture items around your room.
Or, if you feel drawn to start with another room, perhaps your sun room or child’s room, then follow your instincts & preference. It’s important that you don’t feel overwhelmed. Start small if you feel more comfortable. Feeling overwhelmed will most likely block you & you won’t move forward.

Go & visit home decorating stores - even if you can't afford to shop at the best stores, go there to see what it's all about. Don't slavishly follow everything, but develop your sense of what looks good.
Develop your style, your eye, your taste - If you don't think you’re clear just quite yet, or you feel you haven’t developed your own style, your eye, your taste, start going about learning & looking around you.
