It is always fun to spend time with family and friends in the living room. Make the most of your time together by creating a warm and inviting space that will make all family members and guests feel comfortable. After finding great new pieces of furniture and accessories from a consignment shop, consider these factors before arranging the pieces in your living room:
The Size of the Room
Size is one of the most important factors to consider when decorating any room in the house. Use a tape measure to accurately measure the length of the walls and the distance between them. Think about which parts of the room are suitable for which pieces of furniture and decide what layout you like best.
The Shape of the Room
Shape is another factor to keep in mind when arranging furniture in your living room. Some living rooms are square-shaped, while others more closely resemble rectangles. Square-shaped living rooms often have furniture closer together while rectangular-shaped living rooms have wider spaces in which to spread furniture out. Determine how the shape of the room dictates how the furniture should be arranged.
Design Elements of the Room
It is also important to think about the design elements currently found in the room. Look around to see where windows, doors, and other features are located in this space. Consider which parts of the room get natural light, and which parts serve as walking areas. Keep these factors in mind when placing furniture in the room.
What You Will Do in the Room
Furniture provides seating and other comforts in the living room. Think about what you do in your living room to find the perfect spots for each piece of furniture. Work with your family members to create a layout that works for everyone.
