The size of the room will dictate how far you can pull your furniture away from the walls, but even in a small space you’ll want to give pieces a little breathing room by allowing a few inches between the backs of furniture pieces and the walls. Despite popular belief, this little bit of space can actually make rooms feel bigger. Of course if you have a larger space feel free to arrange furniture in such a way that conversation areas are created in the middle of the room, leaving several feet between the walls and the furniture.
Using area rugs is a great way to define seating areas, but the number one mistake people make in the living room is using an area rug that's too small. Remember that all of the furniture should be able to comfortably sit on the carpet. If space doesn't allow it, make sure that at least the front legs of any large upholstered pieces are on the rug. (Small pieces like side chairs and tables should always have all four legs on the rug.)
When it comes to living rooms, don't settle for so-so. It doesn't take a lot of money to create a fabulous space. You will probably spend much of your hours at home in this space, so make it fabulous without spending a fortune.
Living room lighting serves a dual purpose: it works as a light source, but also as a decorative accessory. It's important to have a variety of lighting that not just accommodates whatever events take place there, but also looks great in the space.
