On the other hand, it’s also important that your furniture is not too small for the room. It will make your living room appear empty and unfinished. Use the numbers below to help you plan out your living room layout and then make purchasing decisions for furniture.
Here are a few distance essentials to think about:
- Distance from your sofa to the coffee table: 40 to 45 cm
- Distance from your sofa to the opposite sofa or chairs: 2 to 2,75 meters
- Distance from your TV to the sofa: multiply the TV size by 2,75
Play with Different Color Schemes
Color Schemes to Consider:

Triadic: Triadic color schemes are made up of three colors that are equidistant from each other on the color wheel. A common example of this is red, blue, and yellow.
Triadic color schemes are great for people who want something that looks very artistic and unique, but they can be hard to pull off. They do require a lot of thoughtful planning but can be highly creative if done correctly.

Complementary: Complementary color schemes are made up of different shades of just two colors, such as blue and orange or yellow and violet. You can make a statement with these combinations because they stand out so much.
Split-Complementary: These color schemes are split complementary color schemes because there is a third, neutral color added to the mix. There are many different variations of this color scheme.
Be Functional with your Furniture and Living Room
When considering your creative layout, you should also make sure that it is functional. Functional means that you take advantage of your space. For example, instead of adding an extra table to your living room, consider shelving units for your accessories. This keeps your space open.

Also, be sure to stay organized. Keep unneeded items stored away. Storage ottomans are also an excellent way to create a functional living room. You can keep your extra throw pillows or sofa throws folded neatly inside.
