01-Apr-2015
Sometimes, all you need to do is move your furniture to fall in love with your space all over again. Here are some tips for rearranging your living room to get exactly what you want.
A living room layout doesn’t have to focus on the TV. This illustration highlights, using green, how you can have a face-to-face seating area as the rooms focal point instead. Roomplan
For the social butterfly
If you love socializing (of the easy going, stay-up-all-night-talking variety) then this set-up is for you.

First step? Get rid of the TV and media cabinet (who says it has to be in the living room anyway?). That way, you’ll have more space for a face-to-face seating area (and a gramophone, if that’s your thing). By adding a couple of comfy armchairs and footstools, we even get extra seating for additional guests. A rug anchors all the parts of the seating area together to create a cozy, welcoming space.

For the (wannabe) masterchef
If you love to entertain with food (of the wow your friends with a three-course meal variety,) then this is the set-up for you.
The table gets the pride-of-place focal point in front of the window. It’s now a table with a view and there’s plenty of space for all four chairs. Think about adding a ceiling light to create an inviting glow over the table.
Swap your bookcase for two glass-door cabinets filled with glasses and dishes. Placing them close by the dining table means less back and forth to the kitchen.
You can make space for a reading corner in your living room. This illustration highlights, using green, how you can make space for a cozy reading corner in your living room.
For the avid reader
If you like nothing more than curling up with a good book then this reading corner is for you.
By pushing the dining table up against the wall, you could win enough space for a mini library in front of the window. A couple of bookcases keep all those good reads within easy reach. And a proper (and comfy) reading chair and floor lamp for nighttime reading finish it off.
You can make space for a study space or work area in your living room. This illustration highlights, using green, how you can turn your dining table into a desk and create a work space in your living room.
For the work-from-home creative
If you work from home, or perhaps you like to blog, craft or draw then this work area is for you.
A dining table can make a great desk. Just add a proper work chair. By moving the bookcase to the area behind the desk, you’ll have easy access to reading material, craft and art supplies and a few inspirational bits and bobs. With your dining chairs stacked close by, you can easily switch it back to a dining table.
