Before choosing family room furniture, decide on the overall style of the place. Traditional furniture, such as tufted sofas and upholstered chairs, are perfect for classically-styled spaces. If you are drawn to a more contemporary, on-trend look, you may opt for modern or mid-century modern furniture designs. Somewhere in the middle? Mix and match items from different sets and collections for personalized look, or create your own custom furniture.
Once the seating area has been set (around the focal point), placing tables and storage cabinets is next. In a living room, the main coffee table or ottoman can be placed in the middle of the sofas and chairs. It’s best to allow 18 inches between a coffee table and sofa so drinks and the tv remote are within reach. Sofa tables are long, narrow tables that go behind a sofa, against its back. Side tables go next to the armchairs and on either side of the sofa. Be sure to allow at least 30 inches between furniture pieces in places where people need to pass through.
Sure, you need a spot to set your drink and maybe display a book or two, but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to the standard square or rectangular cocktail table. Try grouping smaller round tables or go for an ottoman topped with a tray for a comfy spot to kick your feet up also offers extra seating for a crowd.
