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.
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.
In an all-white room, there should always be some sort of pop of color. Doing so breaks down all the white and brings a focal point to the room. Focal points are always good and interesting. Choose a bold hue such as blue, red, yellow or green or use accent chair in one of those shades. If you want to add an intricate touch without adding color, texture is the way to go. The easiest way to do just that is to add a rug. Rugs are great for added décor and they come in multiple different colors, designs, patterns, and textures. You can pretty much use any rug you desire and bring the area back to life.
