Focal point

One of the most important things to consider when deciding on placing the furniture in a living room or living room, is to decide on a focal point for the room. The first thing to consider is the focal point of architecture which is a window, a chimney, major door, such as French doors or sliding glass doors. You can also create a focal point with a large important piece of furniture as an entertainment center. Once you have decided on your focal point, everything else in th

e room will be placed depending on the focal point.

Placement of seats

Now, the largest piece of furniture should be placed in front of your focal point. This can be placed at a specific angle if there are angles in the walls or ceiling. You do not need to put the furniture against the wall unless the room is very small. In fact, place furniture away from the walls tends to make the room look bigger. From that moment, the rest of the room should be placed according to the placement of the first unit and in line with the first part.

Usually the largest piece of furniture is a sofa and the next piece can be a two-seater sofa or a highchair that would have to be placed at right angles to the sofa to form an “L” shape. Other chairs should be placed diagonally across this group, but at right angles to the sofa. In this way the seats are arranged in convenient conversation areas. If a room is too long, more conversation area can be created.

Tables and other furniture

Once established the seats, tables and coffee table can be placed accordingly, usually with a small table between the sofa and the seat or the love seat and another end table among other chairs in the room. The coffee table should be set before the couch with enough space to comfortably walk between the couch and the table. Be sure to leave enough room to walk around the room, but not quite right. There should be more than one tissue, zig-zag motion traffic in the room, but all tables should have seats on hand so that the drinks can be placed on them and they can be reached comfortably without going up.

Other furniture such as tables, shelves, piano, boxes should be placed on the walls appropriate to the size of the furniture and spaced around the room so that they are not too heavy balanced parts and are on one side of the room. Carpets also help anchor a room and define a space activity as a conversation area or dining room. When choosing a carpet, be sure to select one large enough to cover all types of furniture, or at least the front legs of the seating arrangement.


The next task is to select the lighting. Table lamps, floor lamps, hanging lamps can be used, but must be chosen to suit the space and dimensions of the area. If the tables and other furniture were placed correctly, the lamp placement should be properly spaced diagonally across the room for balanced lighting.


Once furniture and lighting have been established, works of art and decorative objects can be hung on the walls. The most important thing to consider when hanging wall art is size and shape, and how it relates to furniture, is hanging space or wall. The size and shape should be similar to the furniture that is suspended. For example, it would not be hanging a large vertical image on a long horizontal sofa. You could hang two photos next to each other that are linked so that the executives do not go beyond the exterior horizontal dimensions of the sofa. The work must be linked to the furniture so that the dimensions of the furniture extend up or to one side.

Small pictures of groups can be arranged in galleries as the general shape is similar to that of the box that is associated and does not exceed the horizontal dimensions of the furniture. These can be spread on the ground to get the best deal. If the walls have an angle in the ceiling or an angle of the staircase, tapestries should follow the same angle. The best place to hang a mirror on the opposite wall is a window to reflect the natural light in the room.


The last thing to do in decorating a room is to organize the fixtures. These are the objects of art that they put on the tables or shelves. This includes floral arrangements, small pictures, books, candlesticks, glass or ceramic objects, etc. When organizing a group of accessories start with the first and largest item work up to the smallest items. Keep the sets and similar objects together instead of separating them, and arrange them in a rather symmetrical asymmetric group like the same candle stick on either side of a fireplace. Use heavier objects on heavy furniture and light objects on smaller furniture. In addition, when placing items on shelves or in cabinets, place the heaviest objects on the lowest shelves and light objects on the top shelves.
