Rearranging Furniture

I think most people fall into one of two camps: those who find rearranging furniture refreshing and those who find it unsettling. I am the former and J is the latter. 

Earlier this week, I rearranged the nursery/guest room/office to see if I could make it feel more spacious. And to get a feel for whether or not we could actually go ahead with the loft bed idea I wrote about a few weeks ago. I moved every single piece of furniture multiple times and then found myself putting everything back the way it had been. What a drag. But somehow in the shuffle, I found a new arrangement and I actually really like it. Obviously we will have to adjust the art work and wall sconces, but I think it's a big improvement. 

Growing up, I moved the furniture around in my bedroom every six months or so. I just never get tired of walking into a room that feels fresh and new, yet familiar all at the same time. I also get miserably bored if things are just the same all the time. 

So which are you? A rearranged or a leave-it-be-er?

  1. I love to rearrange my furniture, but unfortunately the rooms in our city dwelling are too small to do this successfully. I definitely feel like there is only one workable configuration for each room. Sigh.

    1. I can totally relate. Our bedroom and living room are fixed arrangements. I love the bedroom so it's fine. But I made my brother spend an afternoon moving our hulking couch around, only to put it right back where we started one Christmas! ;)

  2. I love the new arrangement. It looks great and indeed it looks more spacious! Great job :-) I have never considered rearranging things at home, but I will think about it, it is a good idea. xoxo

  3. For me, rearranging my childhood bedroom was such a routine project that I even sketched "blueprints" of the potential plan before doing any heavy lifting. It's comforting somehow to know other guys and gals practiced the same habit. Hopefully J ends up coming to appreciate the current arrangement once the newness wears off. :)

    1. ME TOO! I was also a blueprinter. :) Rad. And, yes, he's already enjoying it. Just took a few days!
