Use the room's focal point such as a TV or fireplace, to orient a room's furnishings. Arrange seating around the focal point in a way that provides a clear view for all seating options, but also allows people to interact with one another. Keep table surfaces nearby for placing drinks, refreshments, books, or TV remotes within reach. Arranging seating in a half circle around a coffee table that faces the wall with the TV is more intimate and user-friendly than pushing couches and chairs back against opposite walls from the focal point.
If you use your living room for TV viewing, gaming, listening to music and surfing the Internet, your electronic items will quickly add up. DVD players, cable or satellite TV boxes, Internet boxes, game consoles, and speakers can clutter up your space and get in the way of style and decor. Reduce electronic clutter with an attractive entertainment center that incorporates cabinets and shelves to organize electronics and store accessories. Living room storage options include hutch-like cabinets with shelves and bookcases on either side of TV stands.
