Tips for Choosing the Right Furniture for the Living Room. The living room is arguably one of the most important spaces. Often the guest room will be the first place to meet when you enter, and maybe where you and your family spend most of your time together.
When you choosing furniture, it is important to consider factors such as quality, size and aesthetic appeal. You also need to consider whether you want to have a theme for your space, and whether you want a formal or informal living room. If your living room is open to the kitchen, you also want to consider coordinating with that space.
Now let’s look at how to plan and choose the right furniture for your living room.
1. Make a floor plan
If you are wondering how to choose living room furniture, remember the size of your room is the first step to planning what can be included in it. It’s a good idea to make a floor plan on paper so you can find various ways to install furniture that catches your attention. By using a tape measure (meter) calculate the dimensions of your room. Planning helps you make efficient use of all available space, thus avoiding chaos. It also helps you to enter space for circulation around your furniture.
Note: Measure your door. If the furniture you ordered arrives, make sure that the furniture can enter through your door when the delivery time comes
2. Note what furniture is needed
Remember, when measuring your space, note the furniture so that you do not order items that do not fit your living room. It is also important to choose the right sized furniture for your space. If your space is small, large furniture can look ‘arrogant’. Similarly, in a large room, chairs and small tables also look “dead”.
Some people only use their living room, while others use this space for everyday family needs. If you only use space from time to time, you can buy more complicated items without worry. However, for family rooms that are widely used, it is very important to buy stain-resistant and sturdy items, especially if you have children.
3. Determine the shape and placement of furniture
Think about the shape of your furniture and how you look in your living room. Furniture with a round shape occupies more space than square pieces or squares.
In the case of shared furniture, it is very important to place it in an easily accessible place to ensure that all families can use the pieces. For example, placing a coffee table in the middle of a room is far better than placing it next to a chair that is only used by one person. Also, remember to place the TV in a central location.
