Arranging your television set in your living room among the rest of your furniture might seem like quite a task. It works best if you can dedicate a separate room for your TV set while creating a seating space around it. But since a lot of people don’t have the luxury of space, the living room is often doubled up for both television entertainment and seating.
Most of the living room set up ends up with its furniture pointing towards the television set. No matter how much we try, the TV often tends to be the central attraction, while everything is just arranged around it. But if you are looking forward to re-arranging your living room set up, to not make the TV dominate its presence over everything else in the living room, then you are reading this just in time.
Read on to find some refreshing way of arranging your TV with your living room furniture. To see more ideas for decorating around a TV visit this page.
The Corner Spot – Living Room with TV in the Corner
That’s right! To make your living room set up different, the first way of arranging your TV is placing it in the corner. While the most common way of placing the TV is on the largest wall, so that you can sit and watch your favorite shows, placing it in a corner immediately makes your living room feel not so TV-oriented. While the corner can be occupied by the TV set, hang artwork on the adjacent wall with the sofa right opposite it. This set up ensures that you watch the TV usually while reducing the presence of the TV.
In this example you can see a living room with TV corner placement using an entertainment center rather than using a wall mount.
Create a Corner Media Center
To create a dual purpose living room layout for watching TV as well as socializing consider creating a corner media area. This living room features a corner TV positioned above a media cabinet with the emphasis firmly placed on the beautiful fireplace.
Living Room Arrangements with TV and Fireplace
What can be more attention seeking than a TV in your living room? Whether it a textured wall or any other decorative element, a TV placed among something that steals more attention makes your living room distinct. For example, a fireplace could be a great option to not just warm your living room, but also keep things casual and conversational. Place your sofa set facing the fireplace, while the TV set can be mounted above it with great results.
Living Room With TV in a Built-In Cabinet
This beautiful living room features a large built-in cabinet that accommodates a large TV with the furniture positioned around it as the focal point. This setup is ideal for those who can designate a room solely for the purpose of watching TV. A low positioned TV is great for eye level viewing and the built-in cabinet helps bring some custom style to the space.
Spacious Distance from Couch to TV
For homes with much more space, the living room set up can be spaced out to seem elegant and luxe. Arrange your sofa set while leaving enough space between it and the wall on which the TV is mounted. This arrangement gives quite a lot of space to move around and also creates a seating area away from the TV.
A Living room is meant to be a comfortable spot to sit and talk to your family & friends. But electronics like TV become such a prominent part of our lives that the living room ends up losing its charm. If you are looking forward to giving your living room arrangement a quick update then creating a cozy conversational spot with your furniture is the way to go.
While the TV can be mounted on the wall, ensure that your sofa set and coffee table sit opposite, facing it. Place the accent chairs right below the TV facing inward towards the sofa. This arrangement is perfect for all those who want to create a relaxing living room set up that doesn’t have the TV set as its main focal point.
