Decorating Tips for Arranging Living Room Furniture

One of the most popular questions that I get from my readers is how to arrange living room furniture. It’s a great question, and it can be a little tricky. But don’t worry, we’re going to cover everything you need to know in this post!

In this post, I’m going to show you some tips for arranging living room furniture in your home. I’ll also show you some examples of how you can use these tips for your own space. Let’s get started!

Decorating Tips for Arranging Living Room Furniture

Arranging Living Room Furniture Around a Fireplace:

It is possible to arrange living room furniture around a fireplace and still have an open feel. This room has the fireplace on one wall, but there are no windows on that wall, so the room feels open and spacious.

The fireplace isn’t centered in the room because there is an entryway on one side of it, so instead of centering the furniture around it, they moved the couch off center and centered it with the TV (which isn’t even centered with the fireplace!).

This allows for a lot of visual interest, and it also gives the room an open feel. This is one of my favorite living room layouts!

Arranging Living Room Furniture Around a TV:

When you have a TV in your living room, you want to make sure that it is the focal point of the room.

You don’t want to have a TV in your living room if you can’t see it from where you sit. You also don’t want to have a TV in your living room if it’s the only thing that draws your eye.

A fireplace, or some other type of focal point (see below) should draw your eye first. This living room layout does just that! The fireplace is centered and gives off great light for this space, and the TV is off to one side.

It’s still an important part of the design, but it doesn’t take away from the fireplace or anything else in the room.

Arranging Living Room Furniture Around an Entertainment Center:

Arranging living room furniture around an entertainment center can be tricky, but I think this example does a great job!

The TV is centered with the entertainment center (which has doors on either side), but they added another tall piece of furniture on one side to balance out the space and keep things symmetrical.

This piece also allows for seating without taking up too much visual space. And if you look closely at this picture, you’ll notice that there are three areas of interest in this room: the fireplace, the entertainment center, and the bookshelf.

Arranging Living Room Furniture Around a Corner Sofa:

When you have a corner sofa in your living room, you can arrange living room furniture around it in two different ways. The first way is to put two pieces of furniture on either side of it.

This is a great option if you have two matching pieces that you want to show off! But sometimes you may not have two matching pieces that look good together.

In that case, you can still do something similar by putting one piece on either side and then centering your seating area between them. The key here is to keep things symmetrical and centered.

This example shows an L-shaped sectional with an ottoman and a small coffee table between them. I also love how they put some artwork above the fireplace! It really adds interest to the space!
