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.
The living room is a place for comfort and leisure. It's a place to relax and entertain family and guests, and in modern homes it's typically furnished with comfortable furniture and a number of electronics, including televisions, DVD players, cable TV boxes, sound systems and gaming consoles. Blending today's electronics with style and comfort to get the perfect living room for your home takes a little creativity and some interior design finesse. When arranging your living room, most people think of the typical configuration of a TV in front of the couch and chairs. But consider the way people move through the house and how they enter and exit the living room before placing your items.
