First impressions are everything. When you have guests over, where do they usually congregate? And besides the hallway, what’s the first area of your house that guests usually see? Your home or apartment’s living room is one of the most important rooms to show off your style. Before purchasing your next sofa, love seat or even coffee table, be sure to check out these helpful tips on how to select the right furniture for your living room:
1. Find a focal point. If you have a 55-inch TV and you love having people over for the big game on Sundays, then it might be a good idea to make your entertainment center the focal point of your space. But if you’d rather kick back with a good book or family board game, perhaps the seating arrangement should be your primary focus. Whatever the focal point, make sure the rest of the room’s furniture and arrangement doesn’t overpower that.
2. Know your lifestyle. Are you big on entertaining? Do you always host the big family Thanksgiving? Having comfortable seating – and plenty of it – should be an important consideration. For these families, we like suggesting a stylish sectional or even a nice sleeper sofa for those out-of-town guests.
3. Plan ahead. If your current abode is an 800-square-foot apartment, then you might not be able to accommodate the love seat, sectional sofa and huge entertainment center you had in mind. Before you start making your mental wish list, plan ahead and get realistic. Buy furniture that will fit your living room without making it too crowded. If you relocate to a bigger place, Mueller Furniture will always be here to help you furnish!
