When it comes to decorating a home, there are few things more intimidating than standing in an empty room and not knowing where to start. There are so many things to consider—personal aesthetic, lifestyle, budget and more—but the best way to begin is with the furniture layout. In other words, determining the arrangement of sofas, chairs, tables, storage cabinets and anything else that is involved in the room’s floor plan (any item that touches the floor). We’ve compiled a simple guide to follow that works for every room in the house, starting with the living room.
A sofa may be primary seating that offers the most seats, but the right chairs can have a large impact on your living room as well. A chair can accent a design, match the sofa to extend that design element, or add contrast to bring some drama and layers to your design. A chair or multiple chairs can change the balance of a room, shifting it, or bring it together to make the entire room feel unified and complete.
When arranging living room furniture, there’s no need to crowd; leave room for traffic and an entry drop spot. Cozy key seating pieces up to the fireplace facing each other. Use end tables as landing spaces on both ends of the sofa. Pair chairs to balance the visual weight of the sofa and to maximize seating. The living room furniture arrangement should account for visiting guests, but still feel cozy when it is only you and your family.
