Choosing living room furniture based on what you need from it. How big is your layout? Will large-scale furniture or smaller designs best suit your space? Determine how you will use your family room to decide what styles you need. Next, decide on the sofa type you want. A quality sofa is the foundation of every great family room. Consider seat height and cushion softness and depth. Take size into consideration: a compact loveseat for small living rooms and a full-sized or sectional sofa for big spaces. If you frequently entertain guests, consider a sleeper sofa. Do not forget to accent with living room chairs or a daybed. Complete your living room furniture collection with ottomans and side tables.
Floor lamps take the place of side tables, so the coffee table should come within arm’s reach so guests can set drinks down. There are some floor lamp designs that come with a table attached as well. Table lamps are self-explanatory—just make sure they don’t take up the entire table top. Chandeliers should be centered above the main seating area, or flush-mount fixtures make sense anywhere on the ceiling since they don’t hang down. Spot lighting can call attention to art works, sculptures or library built-ins as well.
There are plenty of shelving options available in all kinds of materials, including metal, plastic, and wood. There are shelves that hang, shelves that are built into your walls, or shelves that stand free so that they can be placed anywhere. With the right shelves, you not only clear up storage issues, but you can compose a great design. You can expect to spend $20-$25 per linear foot on shelves made from basic wood materials. If you do the labor yourself, you can save some money. Professional labor could you be between $30 to $60 per hour of their work.
