Lounge Furniture Tips for Large Living Rooms

Designate zones

In a small room, you will likely only have room for one ‘conversation area’ and no additional space for furniture groupings. Large rooms can function as so much more than just a large sitting area, but you might have to get creative with how to best utilise the size or shape of the room you have. Identify several possible functional areas within the room, such as a conversation zone (or two or three…), a media zone, an area for a writing desk, a console or a game table, a dining area or perhaps a reading area.

Anchor the room

Great rooms or large living areas can end up feeling a bit of a mess if you put too many small pieces in the room without at a couple of anchoring pieces. A sectional, large sofa, large coffee table and even built-in bookcases or a piano will help anchor a room so smaller pieces can be tucked in here and there as accents if necessary.

Avoid too much wall ‘hugging’

Somthing that just does not work is a sofa pushed back against one wall and the chairs on the opposite size of the room against the other wall, leaving too much open space in the middle. If you have to shout in order to have a conversation with someone sitting across from you in the room, it is likely your furniture is too far apart.

With a larger room you can pull seating out from the walls to create a much cozier conversation area around a focal point like a fireplace. Don’t fear empty walls, you can use wall space for art, buffets and consoles, benches and bookcases or additional conversation areas where the furniture can be pulled closer together.
