Hey guys, it’s Bhanuja, interior designer in Korai Interiors and today I am going to give you some tips of how to lay out your living room. The living room is a gathering place for the whole family and it can be the focal point for your home. If you want to ensure that this is one of your most comfortable areas in the house, then you will need to pay attention to its layout. A layout for the living room will ensure that all members of the household have somewhere they can comfortably sit and where they can comfortably relax. While modern interior design focuses a lot on function, there are some things you should still consider when planning your layout. Here are some living room layout tips to help you get started. As far as function goes, you should keep the focus on making the most of the dimensions of your living room. If you look at most living room layouts, they are almost exclusively circular. This isn’t necessarily a problem. In fact, circular shapes are very easy to decorate around with furniture. There are plenty of ways you can arrange your furniture to maximize space without it becoming cluttered. The layout of the living room layout does not have to follow any strict rules. It is the place for you and your guests to be, after all. That means you shouldn’t need to focus on creating a design that has certain characteristics. Instead, focus on the basics and you will be able to create a layout that looks amazing. One of the first considerations when designing a living room or a dining room layout is the size. Both rooms tend to share a common size. Since both are used frequently by members of the household, both should have enough space for people to walk around. However, the layout of your living room will tend to be more efficient if you allow extra space for the larger members of the household like the children. One of the best tips when designing a living room layout is to use the space well. Your family members and friends will be spending a lot of time in this living room, so make sure you have lots of seating areas. You can divide a large living room into smaller spaces by placing a sofa or a couple chairs in each corner. Then, make use of side tables and accent tables. You can easily find sofas, love seats, and accent tables at most home improvement stores. Another way you can utilize the living room is by leaving some room in the middle. If you have a large living room, consider folding a sofa or love seat out of the way so that it leaves plenty of room for family members to sit and chat. Then, bring in a table and chairs so that everyone can eat comfortably around the table. Remember, too, that your living room is a room for entertaining. You don’t want to fill it with too much furniture or too many people. Leave plenty of space between your sofa and the wall so your guests can comfortably sit and chat. This will also free up the space in the center for gatherings and parties. Add a buffet table or collection of decorative serving dishes to make this area even more attractive. The living room is a great place for your family to gather, relax, and have fun. Make sure your living room layout follows these basic guidelines and you’ll have a fun, positive experience. Consider adding a few mirrors to make the space feel more spacious and give you a view of the activity going on in the next room. Create an interesting focal point by adding an antique coffee table. Your guests will love having a view of the living room so make sure you get it right when it comes to layout.
