How to position living room furniture

Your living room is where you relax and entertain family and friends. So, it’s important it’s well laid out to help you do both.

That’s why we’ve put together some things to consider when it comes to rearranging your living room furniture.

Allow for movement

Too much furniture can make your living room look smaller. So, if you’ve already got a small room, limit yourself to one large sofa and an arm chair or two-seater. And keep at least two feet of space between each of them.

Create a focal point

In most living rooms, it’s a TV. Therefore, your main seating should face said focal point while your secondary seating can then be positioned around the main seating area.

Keep the conversation flowing

If you have a large living room it doesn’t mean you should push all your furniture up against the wall to make it look even bigger.

Arrange your sofa and chairs so they don’t sit too far away from each other and place a coffee table in the middle that’s reachable from all seats.

Don’t block heat sourcesĀ 

If you have underfloor heating, luckily, this won’t be an issue. If not, try not to position any chairs in front of your radiators as this can block the heat, making the room feel cold and therefore uncomfortable.
