We've all been in the living room with a sofa that's so stuffed with throw pillows that there's barely room to perch on the edge of the cushion let alone sit comfortably and relaxed.

Choose a sofa (and other furniture) that is proportionate to the room. While you may not want a single huge sofa if your living room is large consider purchasing a sofa and loveseat or two sofas to help keep ratios intact for optimum comfort and security.

When a sofa is placed on the opposite wall of a living room focal point (e.g. fireplace large picture window a TV eye-catching wall etc.) it divides the room and creates a feeling of discord. Instead position the sofa on the same wall as or the neighboring wall to the focal point so as to bridge the gap so to speak. The sofa's arrangement in this way allows people to enjoy the focal point(s) more fully without any division.

While the correlation might seem odd to some try it: float your sofa in the middle of the living room and see how it feels. Do the same with the sofa against a solid wall. You're going to feel inherently more vulnerable with it floating and more secure with it anchored against the wall.

If your family simply needs or really wants a sectional sofa consider lessening the harsh impact of the corner by placing a large plant behind the angle to serve as a buffer. Another solution is to position the sectional against a wall so the “arrow” aspect is decreased.

If you have two large sofas or a sofa and loveseat that need to comprise a conversational area in your living room consider angling one of the pieces of furniture a bit.
