This episode discusses the basics of living room furniture arrangement with tips and ideas.
Living room furniture does not need to be placed against the walls. Use these tips instead:
Arrange furniture using a conversation circle or oval as a guide. The size of the circle depends on the amount of furniture you’re trying to include and the scale of that furniture, not the size of the room. For one conversation grouping, the circle should be no more than 18 to 20 feet max. (Not an issue in most living rooms.)
Direct your attention to the focal points of the room.
Leave an opening toward the entrance of the room.
Matched furniture can be used to create a relationship or balance.
