Living room is called the face of your house. It is as important as other areas of your house. However, the most common question we hear is how to decorate your living room or what kind of furniture will make your living room spacious. Thus, in this blog I will give you some ideas about arranging your furniture to suit the way you use your living room:
Arrange for Face To face Conversation
Arranging the seating pieces to face each other over a shared coffee table makes conversation easy, and the table keeps drinks in easy reach.
Divide the room with Furniture
Divide a large living/dining space into separate zones with furniture placement. A sofa facing away from the dining room defines the conversation area from the rest of this open layout.
Seat Four with Chairs
If you don’t have room for the usual sofas and love seats, four comfy chairs will serve as well–or perhaps better. In this clean, crisp setting, matching white slip covered chairs define an orderly, compact, yet welcoming seating group.
Pull Furnishing Together With a Rug
Use a large area rug to unify a seating group within a larger space. If the rug isn’t large enough to contain all of the seating pieces, make sure that those farthest from the wall are solidly anchored on the “island.”
Enlarge the Space with Diagonals
Placing the furniture diagonally gives a boxy room some flavour. The diagonal also creates a welcoming pathway into the seating group. Use the sofa and coffee table to establish the diagonal axis and arrange additional seating on the same axis. To subtly anchor the seating group to the room’s architecture, align the area with the fireplace wall.
Make Space for Lounging
In living rooms where lounging and TV-watching are the main activities, a sectional sofa offers flexible, comfortable seating. Sectionals come in a variety of units, from armless chairs to love seats, ottomans, and chaises that you can combine to fit your space. The sofa in this living room is oriented toward the TV (not shown) and the extra seating is lightweight and can be easily rearranged to face the TV.
Divide Large Spaces with Seating
If your living room is the setting for large parties, bring intimacy and a comfortable sense of scale to the room by dividing it into two conversational groupings with a path between them. Placing one sofa with its back to this path underscores the separation between the two groups, as do the rugs anchoring them.
Arrange in an L Shape
In this large living room, a sofa and a love seat form an L framing a large coffee table. This simple arrangement provides a convenient conversational cluster. A single chair at the other side of this group can easily be moved closer to the conversation grouping
