Furniture Arrangement Tips

The process of arranging your living room is not always the easiest task. Depending on the size of your space and the furniture itself, sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right. Well, we want to save you some time (and possible back pain) by sharing some of the best furniture arrangement ideas we’ve stumbled upon.

Area Rugs
Don’t be shy about the size of your area rug. For the most part, the bigger the better. These make such a great addition in any living room because of their ability to bring warmth to a space and create a much cozier environment for everyone.

Find a Focal Point
No, we’re not talking about the 60-inch flat screen television. Try to find a natural focal point such as a fireplace or big beautiful window to have the furniture directed towards. As a bonus, this doesn’t put so much attention on conversing and allows it to happen more naturally.

Create Zones
When working with a larger room, feel free to divide up the space. A small table and chairs in one half of the room along with a loveseat and coffee table on the other allows for two different activities to take place in one location.

Find a Balance
An easy way to make a room look well put together is by symmetrically balancing the furniture. This is just a fancy way of saying that if you were to divide the room in half, each side would match up perfectly.

Make it Personal
Arranging the furniture face to face makes it easy for all guests to participate in conversation no matter where they happen to be sitting. 

Think Big
Another piece you really can’t go wrong with buying oversized is a coffee table. Be sure to find the right shape to compliment the space you are arranging but use it as a connection for all of the surrounding furniture. 

No matter which way you choose to design your space, what’s important is that the end result is a welcoming area you can share with family and friends. Life’s greatest joys come from these special moments with loved ones. Our team at Hennen Furniture is always ready to help you with your furniture needs.
