If you are using a TV set as your focal point, place it in an attractive setting such as a wall unit, hanging above a media cabinet or in a hanging media cabinet that can be closed off when not being used while providing yet another conversation piece to enhance your décor. In other words, make it earn the cherished position of the focal point of your room. The largest of your art pieces should be placed with the largest furniture pieces; something that says I'm special! If you don't see the perfect piece, head to thrift shops, yard and garage sales and Flea Markets. You know what to do!
Changing your window treatments is another way to change the look of your space, without completely replacing everything in the room. Using a different color or style of drape will alter the look of your living room and the furnishings in it. Going with a different type of window treatment can also dramatically change the appearance of your room. For example, going from cellular shades to drapes, or shutters. The amount of light in the space may also be affected by the change. More light may be brought in to the living room or more light might be filtered out. Also how you hang the window treatment can highlight high ceilings or a nice view, or conceal shortcomings.
Place your sofa in the area with the largest blank space open that also allows the people in the room to enjoy the focal point. Leave at least two feet between sofas, chairs and love seats and the coffee table. Anything less is uncomfortable, feels crowded and causes knee injuries and a painful experience in your home.
