Living Room Layout Ideas

Share |

To create a perfect living room layout first estimate how big or small is the room or living area. Choose a spot for a furniture set. Start arrangement with a sofa as it’s the largest furniture piece of the whole set and it makes a great focal point. If you have other focal points as windows or a fireplace consider arranging furniture set around them.

Living room layout – sofa at the opposite wall from fireplace


Since fireplace is one of the main focal points in a room you can arrange furniture arround it. You can, conversely, place a sofa at the opposite wall while leaving armchairs at the sides of a fireplace.

Bay Window

Bay windows make great breakfast zones and nooks, but if they are wide enough, they can easily fit a sofa creating a living area. If the windows are small sofa can be placed sideways to them and a small table set can be placed at the window instead.

Glass Wall

A glass wall provides more light and views than a window so it only makes sense to place a sofa facing the outdoors, especially if the surrounding views are green and beautiful.

Open Layout

In a house with an open layout living area can be placed anywhere. Usually sofa is placed backwards to an adjoining area to demarcate space and thus separate two areas from one another. It’s a great practice and works every time.

When creating a living room layout try to expertiment and get away from the walls. Place furniture at different angles from each other and walls to achieve most interesting arrangement and layout. Make sure there are convenient pathways around the room. It’s especially important in open layouts as there are no walls and pathways between areas should be open and clear of obstacles.
