How to Arrange Your Living Room Furniture
If the kitchen is the heart of your home, then the living room is undoubtedly the soul. The living room serves many different functions, so arranging it can sometimes be a nightmare of competing priorities. We often get sick of it and throw a sofa here, an armchair over there, and a TV on the shelf and be done with it.
To help you understand it all, we have created the ultimate guide on arranging living room furniture. Discover the dos and don’ts of living room design.
Build Around Your Focal Point
Building around a focal point is a great place to start when arranging living room furniture. A focal point may appear naturally in your design through bay windows or fireplaces, while at other times, you might need to create one yourself with a tv stand or feature rug.
A bold tv stand can make for fantastic focal points in modern living rooms, especially for movie lovers and Netflix enthusiasts! Whatever you decide to make your focal point, the most important thing to remember is to stick to it. Let the rest of your furniture develop around this point.
The Best Living Room Arrangements are Flexible
Flexibility should be top of mind when arranging your living room furniture. Whether your living room is a part-time jungle gym when the kids are home or a full-time office on work-from-home days, your choice of furniture and its arrangement must be flexible enough to meet your whole family’s needs.
Super Outlets boasts one of the most diverse ranges of lounge furniture in NZ to ensure your living room is prepared for anything and everything you throw its way. From armchairs and ottomans for extra seating to foldout couches for makeshift bedrooms, we can help transform your living room into a Swiss army knife of entertainment.
A Rug May be the Finishing Touch You Need
Overlooked and constantly trodden on, rugs are the unsung heroes of living room arrangements. The right rug will help unify seating arrangements and ground your furniture within the room. With plenty of styles to choose from, from sleek and contemporary to Persian-style rugs, Super Outlets has something to suit everyone.
However, it’s important to note that rugs belong under your furniture—all of it! When using a rug, no matter the style, it should be big enough to fit all your living room furniture, even if it’s just the front legs. A rug can be the perfect cherry on top of (or rather underneath) your living room furniture arrangement.
