1. Consider your available space
It should go without saying that every room has limited space, therefore decorating a room with large, bulky pieces of furniture may not be the best way to utilise the space you have to work with. Introducing smaller, or more petite furniture to the room is the ideal way to balance the rest of the décor and furniture in the room. For instance, chairs without arms or compact chairs with be the ideal choice for a room with limited space available.
2. Think about placement
The layout of the space you want to utilise affects the placement of your occasional chair. Create a more relaxed atmosphere by positioning your occasional chairs opposite your main sofa or choose a multi-directional layout with your occasional chairs on either side of your main sofa. This gives an illusion of a larger, open space and is perfect for smaller rooms.
