The living room is the heart of any home. It’s a place you can play with the kids, relax in front of the TV with a glass of wine, or entertain friends with nibbles before a dinner party. We’ve got a few tips to help you kit out your living room and make the most of the space you have to ensure it’s a room you never want to leave.

Tips to Help You Kit Out Your Living Room

Invest in Some Comfortable, Stylish Seating

The first thing you’re going to need for your living room is plenty of comfortable but stylish seating. Depending on the amount of space you have, there are many options for seating. If your room is a little on the small side, opt for a corner sofa to maximise the number of people you can seat in the room. Quirky items like bean bags can be the perfect comfortable furniture that you can move in and out of your living room when you have guests.

Make Sure You Have Plenty of Coffee Tables

There’s nothing worse than having a drink but nowhere to put it down. So buy plenty of coffee tables for your living room that every seat can reach. If you want to make the centre of the room a focal point, get a circular coffee table that will be perfect for putting nibbles on for everyone to share.

Don’t Forget to Point Everything Towards the TV

Put your TV in the corner of the room and point all of your furniture towards it to make sure that everybody can sit comfortably to watch the classic British shows. To make your TV entertaining at all times during the day, invest in a catch-up TV service such as Now TV, Netflix or Amazon Prime to ensure you’ll always have something to watch.
