I do a lot of home staging, and one thing that drives me crazy are long rooms! I thought I would share with you different ways for furniture placement in a rectangular room using my own home for example.
All of these furniture placements I actually like when I did them, but when you’re a DIY blogger, things get changed a lot! At one time, my living room furniture is moved more to the front of the space with the long couch floating a bit. I like it ok, it just closes off the room a bit, but it does give a nice walk through to our entry from the dining area. This view has the buffet against the wall with the round table centered and the long couch against the window.
The only thing I did like is it delineated a place from the entry to the rest of the room, but it also made it feel a bit more closed off. I do like the set up this way,this was about 2012, but it left a lot of wasted space in the front of the room. So this one I pulled from the waaaaay back machine from about 2010.This give the room a nice square feeling and cozy with the slightly angled coffee table. So I hope if you are struggling with furniture placement and your room is a bit like mine, this gives you some ideas!
