9 Rules For Arranging Your Living Room

You want your living room decor to suit a particular style, or motif. When planning for a living room design there are things you need to consider first to achieve the overall look that you’ve always wanted. Based from the rules in this article I realize that I made some mistakes in designing our old living room. Well it’s not too late to learn them!

Our living rooms are often the center of the party: we entertain, hold meetings, host parties, and lounge. Some homes have very formal spaces, others quite casual. Regardless of how you use your living room, follow these rules of thumb to make your furniture placement functional and beautiful.

 Budget

The price points for a coffee table can range from ultra-expensive to very budget friendly, so before you start shopping know what you have to spend on it. Your overall budget should be broken down to into areas such as, accessories, lighting and furniture. The furniture line item includes the sofa, side tables, chairs and coffee table, with a larger portion allocated to the bigger pieces. The good news is that you can bend a little on your budget if you see something you love as long as it does not comprise the quality of the sofa or chairs.
