Choose the right living room design for your personality

Choosing the right living room layout can prove to be a more challenging task than initially perceived. However, selecting a design which matches your personality can be a fun way to spice up the interior of your home. A layout of a room can affect your day-to-day routine as well as your mood, so maybe it is time to shake things up a bit!

Gas fires

There are many designs where can make you get the most from your living room, as well as creating an inviting room, but incorporating your personality into the design can be fun, and give your home a much-needed injection of your personality as well as taste.

Below you will find some layout design ideas to suit your personality:

The focal point

A focal point can be anything you want it to be, including a fireplace, bookcase, television, etc. You can adapt your layout to make sure each piece of seating is facing towards this point in the room. You can change this space for entertaining by rotating chairs and adding floor pillows to create a conversation circle. We have a number of gas fires for sale, which will act as the perfect focal point in your home.


Your living room should be arranged so that people can walk around the space and not through the conversation area. The layout is usually sofas and chairs which are grouped together in a circle so that everyone can speak to each other easily. This type of layout is perfect if you are hosting a party.

Child friendly

To create a natural feel to the room, create ‘sections’. This can be done by creating a divide between the kid’s area and the adult’s space, just use simple partitions like a table, and this will work as a natural boundary. Be sure to arrange a suitable storage solution for any toys and games.

A visual balance

A visual balance within a room is the relationship between the pieces of furniture in relation to one another to form a pleasing balance within a room. Consider the relationships between items i.e. the balance of large or tall items by placing another piece of visual similar weight across the room from it.


By using pairs of furniture and decorations, you can create a symmetric look within your living room; this can include lamps, chairs, plants and art. This symmetrical arrangement can work well if you are looking for a formal appearance.


Try to marry together fabrics that work together as a family, things like throws and cushions. If you have hard floors such as wood, a rug is another must-have to create an inviting and warm space.

The secret to the perfect living space is seating, so it is wise to invest in a decent sofa, as well as surrounding furnishings. Sometimes it can take a while to get the space to how you want it, and you may be moving things around often. However, it will be worth the wait once you discover the perfect living room layout.
