  • Remove furniture from the walls- That’s one of the biggest mistakes people make in the living room, placing furniture to hit the walls. The closeness of the pieces provides a more intimate atmosphere. There’s no excuse not to reveal your hard work.

Where To Place Your Rug?

The last piece of furniture in a living room is the simplest, too: the rug. This should be in the middle of the main chair and spread over the sofa (or more) to anchor the entire room.

Coffee tables are always in the centre of your living room. However, remember that the height should be lower than the height of your sofa, and the surrounding chairs. The length of the table should also be about half to two-thirds of the length of the sofa.

If you don’t want to use a coffee table, try using a few smaller tables or benches so it can look similar to a coffee table. Just make sure they’re not too small. So, when people are sitting around them, they can lean over to sit down or take a drink without having to get out of their seat.

Consider placing living room accessories such as televisions, art and picture frames in the perfect places visitors can admire and view. Make sure you use all the dimensions, so you don’t have any unwanted surprises when you put the furniture in the room.
