The square living room may seem a bit rigid in terms of layout. Furniture will generally find its place in a geometric way. A sofa which will face one or two armchairs, a minimalist wall decoration not to overload the room and why not a few shelves to accommodate some decorative objects. The main thing in such a room is not to overload it with bulky furniture in order to balance it visually.

For those looking for fantasy, it will be advisable to break the wise atmosphere of this room by trendy furniture with roundness like an elegant designer sofa slightly curved or a round coffee table. In this living room, the sofa will be the king of the decor, it will set the tone hence the need to give it a nice room. In terms of colors and decoration, we will play the sobriety card so as not to overload this small room. The decor will go first through elements that bring comfort and personality such as a thick carpet or designer wall lamps and suspensions.

The lounge, long in length, although complex to arrange a priori, has more than one asset. It opens in front of us like an expandable decor. All in depth, its configuration in the shape of a corridor displays a certain charm which it is good to emphasize first of all by a special floor covering which will underline its character all in length like a parquet with long strips rather than square tiles. An elongated carpet will also be welcome. The walls will be dressed in light colors to gain brightness.

Besides the floor and the walls, it is necessary to also question the question: what furniture for a long living room ? And yes, in such a room it is impossible to afford imposing furniture such as a large corner sofa or several designer armchairs. In a long living room, you should favor a straight sofa preferably without armrests to gain fluidity. Side coffee table, same round or rectangular table will have the right to sit but will however have to display a threadlike size.

Finally, such a space will make it possible to arrange other living spaces within the living room. An office area, a reading area or a play area for children can easily be added as a continuation of the space devoted to the sofa area.

If the reduced surface area of ​​a studio requires certain obvious precautions to preserve the space of a sitting area , it will also be necessary to provide some scalable or even retractable layout solutions to adapt the layout between day and night. This is often the case with the sofa which should act as a bed when the evening comes, hence the preference for a convertible sofa in this type of accommodation.

When the room is furnished with a sofa bed, it is necessary to provide a circulation space of 60cm around the unfolded bed, and if it is located in an alcove, free at least 15 cm from either side of its head. It is also necessary to be able to quickly deploy the bed, by installing a low table on casters in front of the sofa, providing a place to evacuate it overnight. In a reduced space, the most suitable location for a sofa remains along the wall, preferably facing the window, allowing a distance of at least 30 cm on either side of its ends to install small occasional furniture and light fixtures that will be used as a bedside table once the bed is deployed.

When the space allocated to the living room is reduced, it must focus its layout around the essentials. First by limiting the number and size of furniture to avoid unnecessary congestion. The lack of space to create a completely natural intimacy, it will be a question here of articulating the arrangement around a central point such as a fireplace or a window, spacing the seats as far as possible. This centered arrangement will accentuate the conviviality of the room and make it possible to make the most of the available space.

The more the volume is reduced, the more the shape of the room will frame the possibilities of arrangement. For a very square room, prefer several models of small seats, but the more the room is rectangular, the more the use of a single multi-seater sofa will be indicated.

This is the most common configuration for a salon. Especially since, for reasons of privacy and conviviality, even in the case of additional space, the surface used to set up this space will rarely exceed 25 m2.

Because it is always necessary to respect the same rules of arrangement, whatever the space available: space the seats about thirty centimeters and position them about 40cm from the coffee table. Depending on the configuration of the room, this basic planning rule will mark out the furnishing possibilities.

For a very square room, two sofas facing each other around a centered coffee table make the most of the interior architecture. Conversely, the more rectangular the room, the more play between the sofa and several extra chairs will be recommended. Whether or not they are leaning against the wall, the seats must be arranged so that they form a closed perimeter, arranged around a point of view (a window or a fireplace ). It is around this social enclosure that the other furniture, lighting, and storage space essential for the comfort of your living room can be grafted.

If the place is necessarily synonymous with comfort, it is not, however, a criterion of conviviality. Because a stay, however large it may be, must always preserve a certain intimacy. And even by multiplying the seats, a too large living room will have to be the subject of a specific arrangement, by dividing the room between different zones.

We can choose to increase the conviviality spaces by fitting out several seating areas at different strategic points in the room. But it is also possible to take advantage of this available space by declining other functions. By keeping the rules for fitting out a standard living room (seating arrangement 40cm from a centered table), you can take advantage of the space available to set up a reading corner or even an office corner.

Arrange a living / dining room

An absolute classic in terms of layout, the living / dining room must, however, meet certain invariable rules. The first of them being to clearly separate the spaces, we can then use the sofa to divide the room into two separate parts, provided that the latter has a rigid back and high enough to screen. If this is not the case, you can also choose to separate the two areas using a highlight, such as a bookcase, a dresser or a tall console.

In all cases, it will be a question of preserving comfort and accessibility in each part of the main room, by clearing circulation spaces of at least 60cm to reach the different seats of the room. As for the location of each of these areas, if the living room should be articulated around a fixed point (a view, a fireplace, etc.), it will also be necessary to provide some accessibility to the dining room from the kitchen .
