Change is exciting, whether you are adding new furniture to your living room or simply updating your current layout to add a fresh look to a dull space.
Before getting started, it’s a good idea to have a vision of what you want the space to do for you and what things need to be taken out or put in. To help you get started, here are three tips to consider when planning your new living room layout.
Decide What You Want to Use the Space For
Understanding what you want to use your living room space for, will give you a much clearer direction on what to add and how the layout should work. Is this a formal space? Do you want the space to be used for relaxation and quality time? Is this an area for entertaining? Perhaps the space needs to cater for several activities.
From TV watching to reading books and game nights, the space needs to allow for this with comfort and no obstacles. Build the layout around what you will need in this space. Do your leather lounges need to face the TV, or do you want them to be more conducive to conversation when entertaining?
Are you able to comfortably reach a side table or coffee table from your lounge suite or recliner chair? Is there enough space for passage through the room, or an area for kids to play? These are the types of questions that will help you ascertain how to layout your room.
Choose Your Furniture
Once you’ve understood the space you’re working with, it’s time to acquire the furniture and decorative pieces that will bring it to life. Don’t be afraid to take your time searching for the perfect piece. You must be happy with your final purchases as this will add to the joy and comfort when you start using the space. Consider pieces such as lounge suites for the complete look or a trendy recliner and chairs to add more comfort into the space. If you are looking for functionality, maybe a lift chair would be a good addition to your living room.
Look for reliable items that will stand the test of time. Think of materials such as leather which can last as long as 20 years when taken care of properly. At IMG, we have a huge range of leather lounges and furniture available in different finishes and colours to suit your style.
Adjust & Re-evaluate for Maximum Comfort
Once your new layout is finally ready and your living room vision has been fulfilled, it’s time to enjoy your newly arranged space! As it’s a new layout it may take some time to get used to, and might require further layout adjustments for maximum comfort.
Don’t forget to re-evaluate your space every now and then. Rethinking your living space can give you and your family that fresh feeling or extra bit of comfort they didn’t know they had been seeking.
Bring your living room vision to life through understanding your space, what you want to use it for and finding the perfect furniture.
