Decorating Tips: Identify Traffic Patterns

  1. Consider the traffic flow from room to room.
  2. Leaving about 30" of space around your furniture makes entry and exit points easily accessible.
  3. Keeping the larger pieces to corners or centered along walls will help visual lines.
  4. Keep traffic from funneling through the middle of your seating area by placing a coffee table in front of the sofa. Or, if the room is large enough, create a natural path behind the sofa by pulling it away from the wall about 30-36".
