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.
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.
Deciding on a focal point will really help with space planning—a TV, fireplace, chandelier, artwork, et cetera. Once that is determined, the furniture arrangements can fall into place around it. If the living room involves a television, note that the viewing distance for a standard TV is between 8 to 12 feet maximum, and the viewing angle is no more than 30 degrees. So the main sofa, couch or sectional should be placed facing that wall.
