Storage can be an issue in the living room. Even with the additional storage an ottoman can provide, you may need shelves. Shelves are not only for storing items, even though that is what they are the best at. Shelves themselves can be quite stylish and, depending on style, can really add to your design. Shelving can also hold different items that may accentuate your design as well.
Following these simple steps for your living room furniture layout will ensure a nice flow to the rest of your home as well. Other questions to ask yourself include: What is the first thing you’d like to see when you walk into the room? What do you plan to hang on the walls? Is furniture blocking air supply or radiators? Are there designated zones or areas within the room? Basically, figure out what is most important to you before you begin your furniture arrangement or buy furniture, and you’ll succeed in creating a special space that reflects your personal taste.
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.
