Very interesting ideas to try. But I am a bit confused about when to move furniture away from wall. Are you suggesting for larger room, moving furniture away from wall and in a cosy layout? What about small living room? I have a small 3m x 4m living room where furniture are along the edges. While my family space 6.5m x 5.5m has raked ceiling going 4.5m high, like item 7, zoned into study area along wall and cosy seating. Should I try diagonal for large space?

Hi Sharmin,

You just need to try it, it is furniture, if it is not working you can place it back where you originally had it. Yes, smaller rooms can have furniture 200mm off of the walls. It makes the space look and feel larger. If your in Canberra, NSW south or Queanbeyan you can employ us to do all this for you, just give us a call. Happy furniture trials.

Thanks for your advice, but I myself am an architect and have some interior design knowledge too. I tried it 30cm in a large room, looked like galley behind sofa.
