How to arrange furniture in the living/dining room?


living room furniture placement, partition furniture, open floor plan

Reader’s question

"I would like your advice on how to arrange the furniture in my living and dining area. I have attached some photos of my place and a rough floor plan."

Our recommendation

We would like to suggest two options for furniture placement, which differ in the partition furniture placement. The partition furniture can be either a bookcase or a sideboard.

1st option

We suggest placing a bookcase in the center of the space, which works as a divider and creates separation between entrance and the living and dining area.

2nd option

The second option involves a more classic suggestion for furniture placement, which can be a sideboard. The sideboard can be placed against a wall and the dining set would look beautiful in front of it.
