Work Your Weird Angles. Wondering if your living room furniture is working for you? Are you making the most of the space available to you? Is your current living room furniture arrangement making the room feel cramped or crowded? First you will want to consider the layout of the room, its function and how you prioritise the different elements of the room. Think about foot traffic when arranging furniture, as you don't want to be creating too many obstacles that disrupt the flow of the room. People don't want to be navigating a maze to sit on the sofa from the entrance of the living room. An awkwardly shaped living room can be baffling to decorate. Here's what to mull over if you're working with an odd space. You can turn a weird wall into a focal point. The owner of this apartment turned the vertical space around her bedroom door into a salon styled gallery wall. Not sure where to put the sofa? A bold pattern can establish a center point in an oddly shaped area. Here peonies wallpaper anchors the living room.
From family game nights to book club gatherings, the living room is a social hub. The proper placement of the room's furniture goes a long way toward making the space feel welcoming. Nothing is worse than living room layouts—no matter how attractive—where people have to perch against the walls, as if stuck there by magnetic force. Rather, push seating together so everyone can sit close and converse comfortably. How to arrange living room furniture in a rectangular room depends on the natural focal point of the space. In some rooms, this is architectural, such as a fireplace or a set of windows. In other living rooms, the focal point is a television. Once you determine this feature, orient the seating toward it. This feature now has the attracting qualities the wall is used to—let the furniture gravitate there. For a large living room layout, find ways to create zones in the space.
If you want an intimate seating arrangement that allows your family or guests to converse with one another comfortably, keep the seating positions within an 8ft radius to ensure a natural distance (and volume!) between people for conversation. There should be an obvious surface that is easy to reach from every seat in the living room, in the way of side tables or a coffee table or both! Nothing's worse than sitting down in somebody else's home not knowing where to put down your cup of coffee. Just make sure that there is sufficient leg room when you have a centre coffee table. In the diagrams above, these simple living room furniture layouts show different ways that you can arrange furniture in context to where the room's entrance or entrances may be. A living room should welcome you in from the moment you step foot through the door, so ponder on that as you arrange your furniture. If you arrange your living room furniture asymmetrically, your living room will feel a lot more casual.
