Designer Tips For A Stunning Living Room Arrangement… We’ve all spent countless hours on end, looking through magazines, searching the web, and flipping through magazines to try and come up with new living room design ideas. Because we all have rooms that we feel are underdeveloped and need some refreshing, we spend lots of money trying out different things. Sometimes those experiments pay off and sometimes they backfire. But for whatever reason you chose to put your house up for sale, there’s no reason why you can’t make your home an oasis of color and beauty with some simple living room planning and furniture placement.
Before you begin, though, it’s important to know exactly what kind of a layout works best for your space. In particular, your walls need to match your floor plan and any furniture or accent pieces you plan on using should go along with the walls. One of the best things about living room layouts is that you can pretty much keep them as is. There aren’t any rules to follow because it’s not your living room, your home, or your castle; your living room is simply a living space and your furniture should be designed to maximize your living space.
One of the easiest arrangements to implement for small living rooms is a grouping of couches, chairs, and love seats in a long line. This grouping creates a focal point that dominates the space, while also giving you more seating areas in a relatively small area. Keep the arrangement simple, by leaving plenty of open spaces between the seats and walls. You can add touches of color or unique architectural elements that set the seating apart from other rooms in the house by throwing in a beautiful crystal television or another unique piece of art.
Another one of the most popular living room arrangements for smaller spaces is a series of sofas, with an end table between them for added functionality. The most common way to arrange living room furniture for this purpose is to have the sofa act as the anchor for the series of matching sofas, which usually includes two end tables between them. This makes a much larger space, but it also leaves some open spaces between the sofa rows, allowing you to fit in more pieces of furniture, such as a recliner or wingback chair, without making the arrangement too cluttered. You can easily change up the arrangement of your sofas and tables by adding a couch with an interesting pattern or decorative touches to one corner of the sofa row to create an interesting pattern or texture, while keeping the other sofa in the same basic color and design.
Another option for a small living room grouping is to group a section of seating toward the front of the sofa, creating a grouping of chairs facing either side of the door, with a section of seating either side of the door, again with an end table between them. Again, arrange the seating so that each seat is facing either toward the door or a specific table, and then, if you wish, place a sofa in between the seats. This arrangement creates more open space between the seats and allows you to move freely within the grouping of seating.
These are just some simple ideas that you can try in order to help you create a more interesting living room layout that makes better use of its traffic flow. Don’t be afraid to experiment with various elements of furniture arrangement. After all, that’s what makes a living room interesting, right? Keep in mind that your goal is to create a flow through your living space that allows you to move comfortably between each of the different elements of your home’s living room. And by keeping some of the furniture around, even when you’re not using it, you will create a more attractive flow in your living space.
