Living room – a place for many activities – relaxation, entertainment, watching TV, listening to music, socializing…
This is the place where most people spend their time with each other when they are at home. In some homes it is united with a dining area or with a study. In that respect, the furniture placement and décor should be used in a way that reflects togetherness and family.
Use natural materials, lots of colours, and arrange the space according to its size – large living rooms should be divided into smaller ones with furniture placement. Cluttered living rooms are not a constructive living room idea so do not try to accommodate too much furniture in the living room. Divide a working area of the living room with a partition so that you do not think about work while trying to relax.
Chairs and couches should be facing the door, or at least never with their backs towards it. If couches are not placed by the wall, place a bookshelf behind to give it an effect of stability. Furniture should be with curved edges. TVs and similar metal objects should not be placed as one of the central pieces of your living room. This room should be nice, comfortable and open for people to congregate, and not a `home cinema`. TVs and similar objects disrupt the flow of the energy.
The central position of the TV is counterproductive to family interaction. Sitting, with furniture pieces facing each other is more convenient for family and for social gatherings. `Circle` was used in all cultures as a symbol of community. Seats should be placed having in mind social factors and TV position which is good for gatherings because it enables the flow of the energy.
The living room's main table should be clean and tidy because this table symbolizes health of your family and the entire home. Corners or dark areas should be lightened up through the use or combination of clear colors, plants, mirrors or light. Brighten all dark corners up by placing a beautiful piece of art or a colorful painting there or a potted plant that has round leaves to help the flow of energy.
Wide wall spaces in the living room can be used to accommodate a mirror that makes your living room look spacious, and they must reflect a beautiful painting or a plant.
