One thing that is incapable of enlivening the atmosphere in your living room or dragging the whole décor down is the arrangement of furniture pieces. Proper arrangement of furniture can really enhance the look in your living room and it can also allow you to make the most out of every inch of space. All it takes is following some simple steps and you’ll find out that it’s easier than it seems.
The first thing you need to do is to pick one piece of furniture to be the focal point of the whole room. It can be an entertainment unit, a fireplace, a painting, an artwork, or even a window. After that, you need to arrange the rest of furniture pieces around that single piece in a way that makes it somehow highlighted.
When placing chairs, make sure that they aren’t too far away from each other. You don’t want your guests to have to yell in order to hear each other. Also, make sure that the coffee table is easily reached from all seating areas. You can also look for complementing side tables to place next to the sofa.
Side tables can help wonderfully in displaying decorative items like flowers, green foliage, figurines, and vases. Remember though, side tables need to be as tall as the arms of the sofa in order to create a neat look. When you start shopping for accessory pieces, remember that less is always more.
Avoid over accessorizing the space as this could result in a cluttered space where no one can move around freely. Make sure that you’re leaving ample free space so that your living room keeps looking spacious and stylish at all times. If you’re blessed with a large living room, consider creating a multipurpose room.
You can divide your living room into several zones by using area rugs, curtains, or panel screens. You can create a dining area, a reading nook, a conversation zone, or even a study space. Whatever you decide to do, remember that your living room’s the very first place that reflects your lifestyle and personal taste to all your guests. So it makes perfect sense that you place utmost importance on the overall look and feel of your living room.
