Decorating Tip: Using Sightlines

"A line extending from an observer's eye to a viewed object or area" - Sightlines are a key factor in both designing and decorating a room.

A clear sightline from your home's entry or other vantage point will make your room(s) appear larger and more inviting. Don't block doorways or traffic paths with furniture and keep the focal point in clear view. You want to be able to look across a room to a beautiful view, your new kitchen or from your kitchen to the family room.

Your home can have good sightlines without an open floor plan, and homes with open floor plans can have some poor sightlines depending on how furniture is placed. Don't block views with high backed furniture. Think of sightlines like traffic patterns...an unobstructed path to your destination.
