Your next step is to measure the width and depth of all the furniture you want to keep. My comfy chair with its soft slipcover was another piece critical to my long-term well-being. After all, it had been my retirement present to myself. Even though it was big for a small space, I was determined to make it work.

16. Add right-scale furniture. Before you bring any piece of furniture into your small home, always measure it and make sure it’s the right scale. Crowding a living room with oversize furniture is not the best use of space.
