Before choosing exact details, you should take into consideration some facts. Just because you’ve been in love with a certain layout doesn’t mean it’ll be the best one for your space. You should take into consideration, where your room’s basic foundational elements like outlets, vents, windows, and doors actually fall. So before you decide where all your furniture is going to go, make sure you’ve really studied the room itself.
For example, for doors, take into account whether it swings into the room or out, and whether you think you’ll have it open all the time, or will want to close it often.
With windows, consider how much light they provide and whether you’ll want to be near that light for something like reading or whether the window will cause any glares on a TV. There are solutions to these issues if you don’t have much choice for a certain piece of furniture such as a large sectional. But thinking about whether the window creates glare or draft when you’re watching TV will help you decide on the best location for seating and if curtains are a must.
The other thing, connected with a TV, is the placement of your sofa. The point is that people are uncomfortable, having their backs to the entry of a room, so it isn’t recommended to set up a sofa with the doorway behind it. Consider how the room will be used and how furniture placement can facilitate that, think about an area of focus, whether it’s to have a conversation with guests, to watch movies with a partner or kids, to lounge around with a good book or a glass of wine.
