The whole idea is to place the furniture pieces in such a way that the room looks and feels comfortable and everyone has room to move around freely. You should also find a way to make each piece of furniture stand out. For example, if you have a fireplace, make a sitting area around it.

At the end, add the finishing touches. A floor lamp can complete a cozy sitting area and automatically make it look more inviting. A chandelier can add spark to the room and a beautiful piece of wall art can be the missing link between a bland décor and one that bursts with energy.
