What Houzz contributors are saying:
Shake up the routine. When we picture certain rooms in our heads, we tend to imagine a specific furniture layout, and this can be especially true in the living room. You might envision your new space having a classic sofa, a love seat and two chairs, but this isn’t the only layout that works. So don’t get hung up on your first vision.Every space and every set of furniture have their own limitations and their own possibilities. Try laying out your furniture in a different way, either in real life or in a pencil sketch, to see what can work and what can’t. Figure out where furniture fits best, and then you’ll have an idea of what pieces you’ll need to add, move or eliminate to bring the room together.
