From family game nights to book club gatherings, the living room is a social hub. The proper placement of the room's furniture goes a long way toward making the space feel welcoming. Nothing is worse than living room layouts—no matter how attractive—where people have to perch against the walls, as if stuck there by magnetic force. Rather, push seating together so everyone can sit close and converse comfortably.
How to arrange living room furniture is up to you and your particular pieces. Most of us have a sofa and another chair or two, which we can position and reposition as often as we like. When trying out new living room arrangements, make sure to allow enough space between furniture corners so people can swish past in search of a comfy spot. And give everyone a reachable drink rest, even if it's just a stack of books on the ottoman.
If you want the living room to be visually balanced and to feel harmonious, then take a different approach. When arranging the furniture, think of how it will impact the décor and what the relationship will be with the other pieces. For example, if you place a sofa on one side of the room, you can put two armchairs across from it to establish balance.
Whether your living room boasts a flat screen TV, sizeable windows or a cozy fireplace, angle your main furniture in that direction to highlight the feature. This layout design immediately gives your space continuity and makes people feel right at home.
