Proper furniture arrangement is crucial to a well-designed and functional living room. Rectangular rooms can present a challenge when you're trying to determine how to fill a large space or how to place furniture in a long, narrow room.
6 Add Ottomans. Use in place of a traditional coffee table to make better use of your space (because, let's face it, a tiny house means your living room often does double or triple duty when people come over). You can top them with a tray to hold flowers and books, or call them into use as extra seating.
2. Place furniture in a corner arrangement with the foot traffic angling across open space. In this living room, the door opens right into one side, and a console table keeps you from walking straight down that side. But because the furniture has been placed in a nice conversational grouping in one corner, people can easily walk through the room past the furniture at an angle across the carpet.
Being creative in arranging your room can also be a great way to set your living room apart from every other on the block! Here are some great easy furniture arranging ideas & tricks to try to give your room a whole new flavor in just an hour.
The best way to start arranging living room furniture is to choose a focal point for the room, like a fireplace or a set of large windows. Then arrange the rest of the furniture symmetrically around it. You might, for example, place a couch so that it directly faces the focal point, and then place two chairs around the couch, facing inward.
If you're not sure how to arrange furniture in a living room, orient seating so it takes advantage of whatever view your room has to offer, whether it's a TV or a bank of windows. Create your own focal point by hanging a large piece of art on a wall or create a vignette of favorite objects on a console or bookshelf. If you can't decide between arranging the furniture around the fireplace or the TV, choose both and mount the TV above the fireplace.
