When considering storage for your space, start with media consoles and TV stands. Media consoles provide a stylish platform for your TV. If you prefer to conceal DVD players and other home media, select a console with plenty of drawers, shelving and cabinet space. Display books, framed photos and other knickknacks on living room cabinets, bookcases and shelves. Save space and organize with stackable storage. Modular cabinet pieces can configured in a variety of ways—side-by-side or layered.
While some people enjoy the perpetual flicker of a flat screen television, others would rather spend their leisure time in conversation with friends and family. For a more social space, it is a good idea to place your furniture with people as your focal point, i.e. in a circle or parallel setup where everyone can see each other. Shea Homes, an online furnishing resource adds, “Make your guests as comfortable as possible by allowing them to sit in a seat where their backs are not facing an open space or door. Research has shown that this position can help lower blood pressure and make people feel more at ease.”
For face-to-face chats, place seating no more than 8 feet apart. In a large living room, use furniture to create comfortable islands. Face two sofas in the center of a room, and place a group of chairs and side tables at one end to create a separate conversation area. A furniture arrangement that encourages conversation is the best kind for making memories in your home.
