Although the kitchen is often awarded the title of ‘Heart of the Home’, not all of us spend our precious time in the kitchen. For some, the living room is the heart of the home.

As the area of your home you likely find yourself spending time with family, entertaining friends, and simply relaxing, it is crucial to understand the do’s and don’t of arranging this precious space.

Clear Entryways.

There is almost nothing more off-putting than walking into the back of a couch or large plant when entering a living area. Similar to the vibe someone gives off when folding their arms, a blocked entryway is the opposite of welcoming. Open up your entryways and welcome people into the space, don’t shun them.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4969″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Keep It On The Rug.

Make sure all furniture fits on your rug. The front two legs of all pieces of furniture should fit on your rug. Don’t have a rug? Place your furniture as if you do. This brings order and intimacy to the space.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4964″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Light Up Your Space.

Ambience is crucial to the mood of a room. By adorning your space with a mix of overhead, ambient, and task lighting, you provide yourself the necessary tools to create an ambience appropriate for any situation. Proper lighting also makes everyone in the room look better.

Use Different Patterns.

We recommend using 3 different patterns in your room. A variety of patterns brings contrast, personality, and focal points to your room.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Use A Small Rug.

Possibly one of the biggest mistakes made by homeowners, fitting your living space with too small of a rug leads to an undesirable disconnect. It also make the middle of your living space seem more empty than it actually is. Use a rug that allows you to place the front two legs of each piece of furniture on it, as well as allows for enough room to comfortably move around.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4970″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Flood The Room With Pillows.

While decorative pillows are important to the personality of your space, flooding the space with too many pillows leads to a claustrophobic, unwelcoming mess. If you reach a point where you would need to remove pillows in order to comfortably sit, you have gone too far.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4963″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Create Spacing Issues.

This pertains to multiple situations. First, don’t let your furniture sit against the walls. Pull your furniture away from the walls. By leaving, at minimum, 12” of room between furniture and the wall, you avoid creating empty space in the middle of the living room. Second, don’t cram all your furniture together. Follow the ‘3-Foot’ rule when spacing furniture – while still following our rug rule. Three feet between pieces of furniture (except end tables) allows for the free flow of foot traffic.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”4965″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]

Choose Paint Color First.

Don’t put more stress on yourself than you need to. It’s much easier to match your paint color to the furniture and decor than vice versa. Design your living area and then choose a paint color to complement it.
