Your living room is the epicenter of your home. It's where life happens, where movie marathons take place, where great ideas are born, and most importantly, where your family and friends gather during hard times like these. For this holiday, you need a cozy room with plenty of seats for all your loved ones to draw close. Read through these helpful tips and be inspired with new ideas to maximize your seating space.
Scale It To Match
It is absolutely crucial to find the right size of furniture to match the room while providing plenty of spots for your gathering. If you have a smaller room, choose a modern sofa with modern chairs to keep the room scaled-down yet stylish. If you have a large room, a super soft sectional is always a great idea. Place it in the corner to maximize the space, giving it an open feel for you to place even more seating.
It’s always nice to have an extra seat to pull out when unexpected company comes over. Tucking stools or poufs under a coffee table or a shelf is a great way to beautify while keeping your space clutter-free and company ready. It also has the added effect of providing your guests with a nice little surprise when they realize there is indeed a comfy space for them to sit.
Having a fireplace in your house is a nice way to stay cozy during the winter, and a great place to add an extra bench seat. The fireplace bench seat creates a versatile space for decorations or guests to sit on when the room is packed out. Adding this little ledge will not only up your capacity, but it will take your room from drab to fab in an instant. Just make sure your bench matches the style of the room it is in.
Ottoman Over Coffee Table
When you have a small area, every piece of furniture counts. Instead of having a regular coffee table, try an upholstered ottoman. Feel free to add a large table tray or designer blanket to complete the look. Look for different ways to double down on the functionality of living room furniture.
