How to Arrange a Stunning Living Room

How to Arrange a Stunning Living Room

The living room is more than just a space in which you can entertain your friends and wind down in front of the TV after a long day. It is the heart of the home so you should dedicate time to designing it. Some problems always come up when you are trying to arrange living room furniture so we have developed a guide to help you arrange a stunning living room.


Furniture Sizes and Placement


The size and shape of your furniture matters if you are trying to arrange a stunning living room. Before you start to arrange any of your furniture, you should make a note of the dimensions of your living room and any furniture you are moving, and then sketch out a floor plan so you can see how much space you have to work with. This will help you see what works best visually and how possible arrangements can impact the room’s traffic flow without doing any heavy lifting.



Your sofa should be proportionate to the size of your room. It is often the largest item in your living room, and because of this, it will draw the eye to wherever you place it. Take advantage of this. Instead of pushing your sofa against a wall, pull it away from the wall by a few inches; this will create the illusion of more space.


Coffee Tables


The length of your coffee table should be roughly half the length of your sofa. Its height should be slightly lower than the seat height of the sofa and any other chairs next to it, and it should be about an arm’s length away from the seating area so sitters can put up their feet and put down their drinks. When you are trying to arrange a stunning living room in a smaller space, you may find that a coffee table of this size is not practical. If this is true for your room, we recommend using two smaller tables to obtain the same look.


Side Tables


We think side tables are just as important as a coffee table if you are trying to arrange a stunning living room. The symmetry that a side table can create in a room is unparalleled by any other piece of furniture. The number of side tables you need is dependent on the number of seats you have in your living room. Place a side table on either side of a sofa, and next to any other chairs in the room. The side table should be the same height as the arm of the chair they are next to. If they are noticeably taller or smaller, then this will make your living room look disproportionate.
