Top 4 Tips For Arranging Your Living Room Furniture
There are a number of factors to consider when arranging your living room furniture. Whether you have just bought a discount living room furniture set, or have selected a few pieces individually, we’ve got a list of the top tips when arranging your living room.
One of the major factors to consider when arranging your furniture is the amount of space you have. If you have a small space you want to limit the amount of unnecessary items you have and choose items which are multi-functional. For instance, sofa beds are a great idea if you do not have a spare bedroom and will be having guests staying with you.
An ottoman is another great item you can have which takes up little room, but if you buy the right one, can be used as an extra seat, a coffee table and even a small space to store things.
If you have a large space to fill, you do not need to worry about size so much. Large coffee tables and large lounges can help fill areas without cluttering.
Your lifestyle is also something you need to consider when arranging your furniture. You may work from home for instance and like working in the lounge room so it is important to have the computer and a desk incorporated into the space.
You may entertain people a lot, so therefore the lounge room area needs lots of seating. If you have small children you many want to make sure all of your furnishings have soft corners and sharp edges are away from where anyone might bump their heads.
A rug is also a great addition to a lounge room and can add colour, serve as a feature, or simply protect the carpet from grubby feet.
Distance between furniture
Your furniture should be arranged in such a way so that it does not appear cluttered. Be careful not to over-do the amount of furniture you are putting in one space. Chairs should be kept away from walls and there should be a good distance between your coffee table and lounge setting.
It is also good to make sure your couch is not too close to the television. Chaise lounge chairs are great for comfort and extra seating, just make sure they don’t stick out too far in a narrow area as this may block people from being able to walk freely around the room.
If you have a more open plan space to work with and want to divide it up a little, a lounge is a great piece of furniture to segment a room.
Consider where your natural and artificial light sources will be in the room. You will want a light source near the seating area. Lamps are great to create soft lighting. Experiment with the lights off at night, where the lamp light looks best. Windows are a great feature to any room so work your furniture to make sure the window is utilised.
Arranging living room furniture can be tricky. I hope our tips have helped you decide on the best way to arrange your living room furniture that suits your lifestyle and creates the look you want.
