If you’re looking for a change in the look and feel of your living room, sometimes it can be as simple as rearranging the furniture. There is obviously more than one way to do this, but it depends on the space and the type of furniture you have to work with. Here is some inspiration on how to make the most out of your living room space.
The Mirrored Look
One classic look that many homes opt for is having two identical sofas facing each other from opposite sides of the room with a space in the middle. This space may have a shared coffee table with a television at one end for easy viewing no matter where you are sitting. Additional footstools can be added at the sides of the couches for extra seating if need be. This layout is great for entertaining.
Two Plus Two More
This one is very similar to the mirrored look above, except with two identical armchairs added side-by-side to one end. This look is ideal for those who need extra chairs for entertaining or if the sofas are on the small side. This rectangular look is cosy and is good for bringing people together.
Sofa with Two Chairs
If you have a small space, then fitting two sofas in may be too cluttered. It can also be pricey. Instead, one sofa against one wall with two small chairs facing opposite may be better for your living room. This look can seem a bit spread out, but simply add a rug in the centre to bring it all together.
Mix and Match
Mixing and matching different types of furniture can also be a fun look, especially if you have the space. It allows people not to be sitting so close to someone if they choose. This can include a small couch and a couple of different styled chairs.
With this approach, it is good practice to put pencil to paper and draw out the layout to see what works for you. Ensure you factor in the furniture you have or will get, as well as tables and electronics that will need to be close to an electrical socket.
Say Goodbye to the Sofa
The first piece of furniture for the living room that people tend to think about is the sofa, but there is no reason why you need to have one. They tend to take up a lot of space and become the focal point. Change up the style by introducing just chairs instead. A few chairs really open up the room, but the disadvantage to that is you won’t have a sofa to lay about and relax on.
