Replacing Furniture

I just moved into a town home and my existing furniture seems bulking. What should I do?

Every space is different and has to be dealt with individually. People often spend more money on furniture than on other things in the home and letting it go can be emotionally difficult. The reality is that you may have to sell what you have and get something that suits the space better. Think of it in this way: if you were to lose 50 pounds would you wear the same clothes? The answer is absolutely not! The same is true of space. Try and remember that the space and the house are meant to work for you. Having furniture that is too big will make the house a pain to work in.
