    The placement of couches in a living room can be tricky because of how the lights work. Usually, placing two sets of two couches opposite each other across from each other with an empty space in the middle draws attention to the center and not around them. If you like this style, then remove one couch and put it at a diagonal to balance it out better. Instead of putting couches on opposite walls, try putting one set against a wall and crossing them with the second set along another wall.

    Couches in living rooms are usually best placed on a rug, or some other padding. They should extend from one side of the room to the other, so that those who occupy the two couches will be facing each other. If you have more than one couch in your living room, it's excellent etiquette for couples and friends to take turns occupying the same couches rather than sitting opposite each other - this will help maintain conversation during visits. It is often hard not to interrupt someone when they are speaking face-to-face with another person; by sitting across from them listeners may be tempted take over conversations or change topic if it suits them better at that moment in time.

    In order to make a living room livable, it needs to be defined first. There are living rooms that are used for entertainment purposes and those used as places of warmth and rest. These two different styles need to be taken into account when deciding where couches will fit in the room; based on what your goals are for the area in general, you'll want to place them closer to the wall or closer to the center of furniture. A good example of this is with media centers: a TV seated against a wall would work well with recliners off in the opposite direction.

    Where to put couches in living room can be a tricky decision. There are many factors that need to be taken into account before making the jump and actually purchasing couches for your living room. Your needs, lifestyle, budget, space limitations...

    The first thing you'll need to do is determine where your couch will end up being situated at. Factors that may influence this include its proximity to the TV set (and whether or not it will interfere with viewing), if it will go against a wall or lay out in an open space (if it lays out in an open space, you'll most probably want it at least 8 feet away from other furniture so people can walk around without knocking into anything).

    Putting the couches in the middle of the living room is not a good idea. Placing them against some walls will make for better viewing angles, and appearing less visually cluttered. It would also create conversation space, since sitting close to one another around a group of couches invite people to engage more intimately with one another. If having the couches up against two walls doesn't seem too inviting or feeling too boxed in, arranging them into a horseshoe shape around an open area would yield even better results.
