There can be as many as 10 different layouts you can try in a space measuring only 100 square feet. Take this cozy seating area for example. All of these different configurations feature the same constant focal point around which everything else is organized and that would be the fireplace. Several different combinations can be created, including a series of furniture pieces such as a sofa, a couple of armchairs, a coffee table and in some cases a sectional.{found on apartmenttherapy}.

The first thing you need to do, before starting to plan a layout for your living room, is to determine which are the essential pieces of furniture, the ones you absolutely must include in your design. Once you know what you need to work with you can start developing a plan.{found on blulabelbungalow}.

Arrange all these essential pieces of furniture by starting with the largest one. This would usually be the sofa. Then build your design around that piece. The armchairs can go on the opposite side and in between you can place a coffee table. Or maybe you prefer to place all the seats on one side so everyone can see the TV.

Experiment with different configurations. Sit down and analyze the situation. See whether or not everyone would feel comfortable in that particular configuration and, if not, make some changes. Usually the furniture is organized either around the TV or the fireplace so decide if you want one of these elements to be the focal point. {found on ctaylor}.

Once you’ve decided which element should be the focal point in your living room, highlight it by placing the seating units directly in front of it. This way, those sitting there can admire whatever it is you’ve chosen to highlight. {found on coddingtondesign}.

Usually, the coffee table, side table or whatever other kind of table you choose to use should be placed in the room at the very end. When you do that, make sure it doesn’t block the traffic and that everyone can sit comfortably without having to change their position because of the angle or shape of your table.
