How to Arrange Furniture in Your Living Room

The space size does not matter, if you have the furniture arranged right in your living room – you will enjoy it to the full extent. Just use few of our quick advice and make your living room truly cool!

When arranging furniture, leave room for traffic and the ‘entryway’ free. Make several seating islands (landing spaces). If you have a fireplace in your room – place cosy sofa and a pair of chairs facing each other. Add end tables for visual balance and a touch of functionality. Facing chairs and sofa towards each other are good also because it does encourage conversation. Our tip: place seating no more than 8 feet apart!

Place the seating so it takes advantage of the view your room has to offer. It might be TV or spacious window. Or you might like to create your own focal point by placing the wallart or making photo wall, or even placing console, bookshelves or etagere with your favorite objects. Another useful tip: It is better to place the television so the screen faces away from the sunlight.

Coffee table in between the seating island is a must. Frame the space with cabinets for storage, placed around the perimeter of your room, along the walls. If the space is shrunk, use round tables between chairs and a couch. The curves of the round tables are better for moving around them without sacrificing the territory invaded and for the safe navigation around.

Family and living rooms are usually considered to be the storage hub. Keep it organized if it’s your case as well. Here come entertainment walls and media consoles with storage for rescue.

Living room should have enough of light to be beloved spot. Let the windows provide enough sunlight into your room. For the evening cosiness use the lighting: chandeliers, sconces, and lamps keep it bright. Use your creative imagination flow and make the marvelous room for you and your guests to enjoy!

Tips for the Best Dresser Choice

What is a dresser in your room? Undoubtedly, it is not only the functional chest of drawers to store your socks and hoodies, lingerie and pajamas. It is one of the major parts in your overall room decorating, reflecting your design ideas, the look that you adore and that inspires you when entering your room. Still with no loss of functionality! Thus, to find the right piece for your personal room, studio apartment, spacious bedroom or a cubicle, making budget meet style desires, it deserves a better care than only ‘˜one click’.

HOW TO CHOOSE A PROPER DRESSER FOR YOUR ROOM?

First measure the space the dresser will occupy. Think of the place available for this furniture piece and where you’d like it to go, find several options and choose the right one. The space available for it will give you an idea of the shape and size of the dresser appropriate for your room. Keep the width, height and depth written, so it won’t slip out of mind, when you are swept by the style and options available online at Furniture Cart.

When measuring, take precise attention to few things around the space available for your dresser:

  • Make sure you have enough clearance and it is not too close to the bed, any other furnishings, or the door of your room (when closed or opened)
  • Check if there’s room to open the drawers easily with enough space to take out the stuff you need from it
  • If you are planning to put it under the window, mirror or the wall art piece, pay attention to the height of the dresser.

A dresser fits the best at the plain wall, allowing you to hang a mirror or a decorative piece above it. We don’t recommend placing a dresser with a corner sticking out on your way to bathroom or entrance to the room to avoid any kind of traumas when being in a hurry or making your way to the bathroom in the dark.

Consider your storage needs and put attention to the quantity, shapes of drawers and shelves available. Decide what stuff you are going to keep in your chest. If it comes only to lingerie and sweaters, you will have to look for different sized drawers and available shelves only. However, if you want to keep a lot more versatile things, like jewelry and clothes, then you’ll have to look for more options available by manufacturers.

The practical considerations of measurements and storage assess will help you narrow down your options. Afterwards you are welcome to make a decision on the style, color and design within the budget available and in the frames of the measurements and storage needs.
