    Include before ~1-2 sentences about a basic layout of furniture in the living room. In general, living rooms are best set up with one focal point (e.g., a fireplace or large TV), and then two couches opposite each other with coffee tables in front. One couch usually has the back facing out towards the middle of the room, while the other is situated closer to a window for display purposes. Place chairs around couches, and put end tables by them if you want to have drinks without lifting off your seat. Include about 1-2 links for sources that provide information on sofa placement or decorating rules such as West Elm's guides to big spaces and small spaces.

    The goal of most living room furniture is to be as symmetrical, spacious, and comfortable as possible. Then the question then becomes one of placement. If you have a large sofa with two or more sides that can't be seen from the entryway, it's best to place it against a wall where all its perspectives are equally visible and accessible. So long as there is enough space in your room to accommodate both sides of the sofa (again, not likely if you live in an apartment), it will be worth starting at the door and walking around looking for good places to stand up sofa pieces before settling down on any particular spot.

    Well, the living room is typically the family area where people can relax. For this reason, it's important that you have enough space for everyone to move around comfortably and sit down without feeling cramped.
    If your sofa is too far away from the TV then you may want to put a loveseat or chair in front of the TV so people can gather there, or if not, they'll feel encumbered by all of your furniture. If you're considering putting 2 couches facing each other so friends can come over and watch TV please consider whether or not they would be fine sitting on uncomfortable couch cushions next to each other without being able to get up as often as they like.

    Good planning is necessary to create the best available use of living space. One of the benefits of online shopping is having a computer on site to help accurately measure space and explore alternatives. Another great resource for interior design ideas is Pinterest.com, where users share ideas and pictures of everything from modern furniture designs - including sofas, loveseats, armchairs, coffee tables-to styles both traditional and contemporary - oriental rugs, throw pillows, decorative bookends.

    Furniture placement in a living room is all about balance and aesthetics. Your furniture should stand out or blend in, depending on the type of space you're designing for. Rooms that have quieter tones traditionally prefer more blending because they want to create a sense of calmness. Rooms with louder colors are usually more energetic so they tend to need pieces that stand out since it adds personality and excitement to the space.

    The general rule is one focal point per room. This can be anything from an artwork, to a fireplace, sofa or chairs, a TV, or some other type of furniture. If you're having trouble deciding what to put in the living room and you have nowhere else to put it (for instance if you live in an apartment) then go for the TV.
