The 4 Secrets to a Perfect Setup
You can take some of the guesswork out of arranging your living room furniture using a few simple questions:
Measurements: Where can furniture fit, and will it fit?
Natural Pathways: Is there anything obstructing walkways? Can someone easily maneuver in, out, and around the living room without disrupting others?
Focal Point: What is your living room’s intended focal point? (fireplace, television, window etc.)
Purpose: What is your living room’s main purpose? Social space? Consider staggering seating around a central point, such as a coffee table. Prefer to catch up on your favorite shows? Try to make sure that the majority or all seats in the room have a good view of the television—a method that also works well for homes that want to direct focus to a picture window. Crave more relaxation? Embrace unused corner space by adding a chaise longue and small end table.
