People think it’s very easy to arrange the furniture in the house, especially in the living space. But it takes more than spreading the furniture pieces randomly in the living area to obtain a good impression, a balanced living space design that feels welcoming, cosy also nice looking, all at the same time.
Have you ever felt that a area was just "off" somehow, but you just can not place what it was? Living rooms are arguably the most used rooms in the house, as well as need a good layout that advertises good "traffic" flow. Furniture spacing with placement is key to comfort plus function.
The first rule in arranging the furniture in a living space is to see where the wall plugs are together with to shun covering them with any furniture. If you do that it would only make things more complicated, as you won’t have easy access to the outlet also you would have to use extendable ones as well as this way you increase the hazard risk. So shun covering them.
The second tip is to spread the furniture in an even manner all over the living area. Avoid placing all the furniture in one place, for example one one side of the space or near the same wall, as it would be totally asymmetric plus it would give the viewer the impression of a "sinking ship". You remember the "Titanic".
Don’t place the whole furniture against "the walls". The living area is a place where you are supposed to socialize, to talk to friends, so if the chairs with sofas are against "the walls" also off from each other this would make the conversations impossible. So make certain you produce conversation areas like a sofa with two chairs placed around a coffee table. If the living space has a large TV set, create the interest area around it.
Consider the room’s dimensions when arranging the furniture because you mustn’t use too much furniture when the area is smaller or it would look really crowded. It is also important to leave enough space for traffic lanes, at least 20‐24 inches. Today people prefer the minimalist type in decorating the living space, but you can produce your own choices as long as you keep these basic rules.
