Living Room Buying Guide
Find Your Style
One of the most used rooms in your home is your living room. Deciding on furniture for the first room that people will see when they enter your home can be tricky. Fortunately, you have options when picking your couches, coffee tables and living room sets. You can pick from traditional furnishing to sleek modern décor or a bit of both to create your own personal style.
What’s Your Size?
Measure your room before start the shopping process. Factor in the pieces that you are planning to purchase and where they will be located. Don’t forget the traffic flow, because you should have enough space to comfortably walk around your furniture.

Establish Your Seating Area
Pick a focal point of your living room and then face the sofa in that direction. Once you’ve placed the sofa, position your loveseat and chairs near it to create a conversation area, usually at ninety degrees to the sofa; if the room is on the small side, you may want to just have chairs instead of a loveseat. Consider making these arrangements in the middle of the living room. Placing all the furniture against the walls may make your room seems bigger, but when furniture is closer together it encourages conversation.

Choose your Texture
What type of material are you looking for? Leather furniture can give your room a high-end look, while still being very functional. A leather couch combined with fabric chairs works well to establish a prestigious look.
If you have a large family or just like options on where to sit, a sectional is perfect for your home. Sectionals now have a very contemporary flair with plush construction. The large amount of seating options a sectional provides creates a large amount of options for your room. Many sectionals now have the options to include recliners on each end. Some even have entire sectionals that recline. You can always opt to just have a chair that has a reclining feature as well.

Add You Accents
Position a coffee table in front of your sofa and place end tables next to it or next to your chairs. If you included bookshelves, they work great against the walls, or they may work on either side of an entertainment center. What is important is to keep everything in balance. For every heavy or tall piece of furniture, there should be another one across from it. Don’t forget about the walls, wisely chosen pieces of art can really pull an entire room together. Stylish cabinets are a great option for out of sight storage that focuses on giving a tidy and clean appeal to your room. The ultimate hidden storage solution is an ottoman. Many of them have removable tops or lids, that you can use to store lots of items.
