Sofa So Good
Include plenty of comfy seating by combining two sofas and a single armchair. Group them together for a sociable arrangement and add occasional chairs, stools and floor cushions. A footstool is a handy addition to any living room as it also doubles-up as a useful seat.
Don't Get Square Eyes
Plan where you’re going to put the TV, so everyone can enjoy it. That doesn’t necessarily mean fitting it to a wall: try hiding it in a cupboard with slide-back doors. And think about the size of the TV. Measure the distance from your sofa to where the TV will sit (in inches), then divide by 2.5. The figure you get is the width of the screen you should go for if you want to get the proportions right.
Let Me Entertain You
Make room for entertaining by keeping side tables to hand. The classic nest of tables may seem a bit twee, but boy, are they handy! Combine comfort with elegance by choosing classic, well-made pieces that can withstand the occasional knock. After all, your living room is for living in!
Light Up Your Life
Ambience is everything, so create a relaxed atmosphere by hanging a large pendant light a metre above the top of your dining table or large coffee table placed in the centre of your living area. Hang it too high and you’ll kill the atmosphere, too low and you'll obstruct vision. Buy bulbs designed to throw light downwards.
Made For You
Incorporate plenty of storage and choose furniture that has a small footprint, but plenty of shelves and drawers – ideal for keeping toys, books and DVDs in order. Even better, why not let Sliderobes help you make use of those awkward spaces in your room that often go to waste. We can create a bespoke fitted storage unit for a practical room in your home.
