Guide to Arranging Furniture in the Living Room so that it Looks Perfect – The living room is the “face” of your home, so the arrangement must be harmonious. Arranging living room furniture can be quite confusing, because many people don’t know how to properly arrange furniture. Here are some ways to arrange the furniture and decoration of the living room so that the results appear balanced, separated from the breadth.
Creation of the Focal Point
The center of view (focal point) is a point where attention will rest, and serves as a counterweight when arranging a room, and emphasizes the function of the living room. Television and loudspeakers are popular items to create the focus of the room. By arranging television and other media products on one side, you can arrange each piece of furniture to face it.
Another way is to arrange a collection of photos at one point. For example, one large photo can be surrounded by smaller photos, both on the wall and on a small table. Photos can also be replaced with paintings and other wall decorations.
Create a Comfortable Conversation Area
The ideal living room must allow people to chat comfortably. When arranging sofas and chairs, make sure they are close or close to each other, so that people sitting on them can chat without sticking their necks or sitting in awkward positions.
You can consider this when shopping for furniture for a new home. Be sure to choose sofas and chairs that can be arranged close together without consuming too much space, especially if your living room is small. Avoid attaching furniture to the wall if your living room is spacious.
Give Enough Space for Walking Access
Make sure every piece of furniture arranged gives enough space to walk. Make sure people don’t trip over furniture that stands out, or are forced to jostle while sitting and walking around the coffee table.
Also consider the shape of the living room regarding access to other parts of the house. Ideally, people should be able to walk unimpeded to different parts of the house, without turning or doing odd maneuvers to avoid obstacles.
Consider the Size and Distance of a Coffee Table
The coffee table that you put in the living room must offer enough area to put a cup, plate, book, or a little display. If you don’t want to buy a large coffee table, you can outsmart it by putting two small tables side by side. Apart from being more space-friendly, this kind of coffee table is also easy to move around.
You also have to consider the distance between the table and sofa or chair. Make sure guests don’t stand up from the couch just to take and put down the cup. The coffee table should be the same height as the sofa stand (or slightly lower).
Create a Size Balance
If your furniture has a variety of sizes, be sure to balance its position, especially if the living room is spacious. Do not group all the same sized furniture in one place or corner. The living room will look out of balance with the furniture laying position like this.
Knowing the overall dimensions of the living room will help when you buy large furniture. Even though it doesn’t have to be accurate, you can save time, money and energy to buy and arrange furniture in a balanced manner based on the dimensions of the living room.
Install the carpet in a balanced manner
When choosing a carpet that does not fill the entire room (rug area), make sure the carpet is balanced with the furniture. Ideally, the carpet should be able to load all the main furniture in the living room, but still leave space 30 to 40 cm wide between the edges of the carpet and the wall.
Arranging living room furniture equally is important to create a comfortable atmosphere. Be sure to arrange furniture while considering the dimensions of the room, no matter how big your home is.
