The living room is often one of the most-used rooms in a home, so when redecorating or remodeling think about how you can maximize utility and comfort. And whether the focus of the room is a home entertainment system or a functional space for conversation, a good way to anchor the room is by using a focal point. Sometimes your living room will have one already, like a fireplace and mantle, but if not you can create your own.
“Think about what activities you want to take place in that room,” suggests interior designer Amy Luff at Margaret Donaldson Interiors in Charleston, South Carolina. “Do you want a dedicated TV spot? ? Or do you prefer a conversation area? That will give you a jumping-off point for how you might break up the room.” Sometimes the best way to deal with a long, narrow space is to divide it into two seating groups. That will allow you to fill the space without giving up normal-size furniture. It also will give you the opportunity to customize each area for a different activity or level of intimacy.
A single sofa. This tailored tight-back keeps this small living area neat. Sofas are used frequently in most households. Buy a good-quality one so that it holds up, feels comfortable and maintains its looks. On average sofas are about 84 inches (213 centimeters) long and 38 in. (98 cm) deep. Find a sofa that’s 72 in. (183 cm) long for a modest apartment and save the 96-in. (244-cm) overstuffed one for the ranch house.
