First, I measured the space and all the items I want in that space. That is what you see below. This room is 10'-4" x 11'-10 1/2". But when you are putting one large office desk, printer, files, another office desk (the hubby's), 2 sewing pieces of furniture and one vintage Singer sewing cabinet---it gets a little crowded. Right now, there's too much bumping into each other.
Next, came my preliminary plan of the space which I thought I could live with, but later rejected it. It's just too choppy.
|So, in the above view, you see where I put the sewing cabinets in the same corner, but positioned corner to corner. The 'x' in the top right of the paper in the corner of the room designates 'dead' or unused space. You try not to lay out space that way, but in this case the furniture will look better. Plus, I can hide something in that corner I don't get to often. Maybe I should put a big plant there near the window! That would be nice.|
