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.
When considering storage for your space, start with media consoles and TV stands. Media consoles provide a stylish platform for your TV. If you prefer to conceal DVD players and other home media, select a console with plenty of drawers, shelving and cabinet space. Display books, framed photos and other knickknacks on living room cabinets, bookcases and shelves. Save space and organize with stackable storage. Modular cabinet pieces can configured in a variety of ways—side-by-side or layered.
When it comes to decorating a home, there are few things more intimidating than standing in an empty room and not knowing where to start. There are so many things to consider—personal aesthetic, lifestyle, budget and more—but the best way to begin is with the furniture layout. In other words, determining the arrangement of sofas, chairs, tables, storage cabinets and anything else that is involved in the room’s floor plan (any item that touches the floor). We’ve compiled a simple guide to follow that works for every room in the house, starting with the living room.
