First, draw a box, noting the measurements on all sides. Whether you create it on a computer program or hand draw it on graph paper, having a scale floor plan is helpful for space planning. Most of the time, converting feet to inches at a 1:1 scale is easiest. For example, a living room that measures 16 feet by 10 feet would convert to a 16-by-10-inch box. Then measure any furnishings that you’ve decided to include and create a separate uniquely-sized box for each piece. If drawing by hand, one idea is to create paper furniture cutouts (to scale) so you can play with different furniture arrangements.
The sofa can be an integral part of your living room. It is the place where people are drawn to sit, as well as the piece of furniture that you are likely to point toward your main focus. Whether that focus is a television or a fireplace, your sofa will likely face it. There are a number of sofa options to choose from. The most traditional of which is the classic sofa. This is a standard in most living rooms and typically offers seating for three persons comfortably. This kind of sofa comes in a wide variety of styles, materials, and designs and is often very easy to reupholster.
When arranging living room furniture, there’s no need to crowd; leave room for traffic and an entry drop spot. Cozy key seating pieces up to the fireplace facing each other. Use end tables as landing spaces on both ends of the sofa. Pair chairs to balance the visual weight of the sofa and to maximize seating. The living room furniture arrangement should account for visiting guests, but still feel cozy when it is only you and your family.
