While making the space physically larger would involve expensive remodeling, there are many ways to make the room look bigger that are simple to execute and budget friendly. Check out the following easy-to-do and creative living room decorating ideas.
This illustration shows several pieces of furniture commonly found in a living room. Your requirements will vary, but the principles are the same. You want the room to flow around the furniture for circulation and also have clear paths to the seating areas and exit points. Circulation paths need 30 to 36 in. (77 to 91 cm) of clear width. You can place coffee or cocktail tables as close as 12 in. (30 cm) from the edge of the seating. Other furnishings might need at least 24 in. (61 cm) between pieces for people to easily move about. Another important consideration is the conversation arc. Place furniture so that people can easily hear one another when seated. Eight feet (244 cm) is ideal; larger rooms may need to be broken into seating groups.
Consider the cushions. Most cushions have a core of polyurethane foam; the denser the foam, the heavier it is and the longer it will last. In the cheapest furniture, the cushion is filled with just the polyurethane foam core. In better furniture the core is wrapped with Dacron batting. Higher-quality options include poly-down cushions, which have down mixed with the batting; spring-down cushions, which feature a core of springs surrounded by foam and feathers; and all down, which is all feathers (and all work, so avoid this unless you have servants).
A sofa is one of the biggest furniture investments you’ll make — and one of the most permanent. Even if you’re just buying one for a temporary fix, it’ll eventually get demoted from the living room to the family room to the basement and, finally, the dorm. Before you know it, a decade or more has passed, and that impulse purchase has become part of your life. So give some thought to it before you buy. Then buy the best-quality sofa that you can afford. Your purchase will be amortized over many years.
