One of the secrets to learning how to arrange furniture is making sure you leave enough space between pieces. Allow 30 inches between furniture you need to be able to walk around and 14 to 18 inches between a coffee table and sofa, so drinks are within reaching distance. This should still be held true when planning a large living room furniture arrangement, because if a piece of furniture is too far away, it may look like it is floating in the room without purpose.
Before you break a sweat arranging and rearranging furniture, it is crucial to have a furnishing plan in mind. And, while this plan is entirely up to you, you’ll have a better chance of success if you establish a clear focal point. This can be anything that strikes your fancy: televisions, windows, fireplaces, even people. Once deciding this, the placement of furniture and the different types of furniture needed will become exceedingly clear, saving you hours upon hours of stress and back-breaking work.
Whether you have carpet or hardwoods, a focal area rug helps to pull together the overall design of a room. Be sure to size the rug appropriately for your space. Many times, this means making sure that the seating[sofas, loveseats, sectionals, accent chairs, etc.] overlaps the area rug at least half way. You can use the colors in a favorite rug to bring in accent items, throw pillows, or other decor into the space.
