For any number of different activities, your living room is a social hub. The proper arrangement of the furniture in your living room goes a long way towards making the space functional and welcoming. Nobody wants to spend time in a room where they feel separated from each other, stuck against the walls. Pushing your seating together helps people converse more comfortably. Positioning your furniture is dependent largely on the size and shape of your room, but here are some tips to get you going:
Arranging your furniture is a very personal choice, and no two living rooms will ever be identical. Most people have a sofa and a couple chairs, which we are able to position and reposition whenever we want. When trying a new furniture arrangement, always be sure to leave yourself enough room between the corners of your furniture so people can make their way around the room with ease.
The Straight On Approach
Perhaps the most commonly used and functional furniture arrangement is to place the sofa directly across from the focal point of the room, whether it be an entertainment center or a fireplace, with all other pieces angled to face the same direction. This allows everybody in the room to easily watch TV or enjoy a nice fire.
With a room that has multiple entrances, try drawing an imaginary line connecting the two doorways, and place your furniture in a straight trail along that line. This allows you to keep the focal point of the room in mind while directing people through the space properly.
