Van Soeren’s handy father made some of the apartment’s furnishings. Using scrap-wood pieces, he built the coffee table with casters. “It’s so practical when vacuuming,” van der Kooij says.Since the space is small, they went with a compact sectional to provide ample seating. “We managed to fit in everything we needed without the room being cramped or cluttered,” says van der Kooij. She bought the thrift store dresser next to the couch and painted it white. Sectional: Kwantum; banner: Buiten de Lijntjes

First, let’s get comfortable with sectional terminology. “Right arm facing” (RAF) means that when you are facing the piece or section, the arm is on your right. “Left arm facing” (LAF) means that the arm is on your left. Getting the proper-facing arm is critical, because you will be joining two or more pieces, and the placement of the arm will determine if your new sectional works in your room.The sectional shown here is composed of a left-arm-facing love seat and a right-arm-facing chaise.

3. Do coordinate with the colors of the room. Maintaining a color-coordinated design scheme matters, even when all you want to do is deck the halls in red and green. Remember, every room of your home should be as appealing as possible to prospective buyers. So, if your favorite holiday decorations clash with the colors in your room, think twice about using those specific pieces. Fortunately, there are tons of creative ways to add holiday accents without throwing off your palette.
