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.
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.
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.
