Arranging A Small Living Room

When you are arranging a small living room, it is important to make sure that the room is not too crowded or cluttered.

You will not only arrange where the TV and the fireplace will be positioned but you will arrange where all of the furniture will be set.

This can be difficult, especially in a small living room. 

Arranging your living room well can completely transform the space, so it is an important design to get right.

There is a way to arrange a TV and a fireplace in a small living room, but how?

Position The TV And The Fireplace On The Same Wall

If you have a small living room, making the most of the available space is important for keeping the room tidy.

If there is too much going on at different points of the room, it will look cluttered and overcrowded, so positioning the TV and the fireplace on the same wall will make them both the focal points of the room. 

You simply need to mount the TV over the fireplace and make sure that it is secure.

You can then position your furniture to face the fireplace and the TV, making them the main focal points.

This will avoid any problems with where to face the furniture in the room as they can all face the same way. 

Why Position The TV And Fireplace On The Same Wall?

By positioning the TV and the fireplace on the same wall, you will be saving a lot of space in a small living room and you will create the main focal point of the room.

In a small living room, you cannot have too much going on at once as this can be distracting and challenging to declutter. 

Having both of these features on one wall means that you can create a cozy environment in your living room.

This will be very appealing for you and your family to relax in as you can feel comfortable and warm in the room.

Having the fireplace by the TV means that you will feel the warmth from the fireplace when it is on, feeling the full benefits.

Avoid Large Furniture

In a small living room, you want to avoid having large pieces of furniture that take up unnecessary space and look out of place.

They will overcrowd the room and become the focal points of the room, which will take away from the fireplace and the TV. 

Having smaller sofas and comfortable chairs in the living room will allow everyone to sit down comfortably, avoiding unnecessary space being taken up.

This will create a cozier atmosphere and will create the right balance in the room. 

Decor

If you are adding decor to your living room, you will need to make sure that it doesn’t throw the whole room off balance.

Having a side table that matches your fireplace will allow you to display ornaments or plants, but the side table needs to match the color scheme of the room, otherwise, it will look out of place. 

You can also display mirrors or art on the walls of the living room, but you need to maintain the balance throughout the room.

Adding decor to the wall opposite the TV and fireplace will balance the room, but adding decor to one of the side walls will throw the balance off.

You can add photos on both sides of the TV, but make sure that it doesn’t look too crowded. 

Do Not Block The Windows

Blocking windows with furniture is very common in small living rooms as people feel that they do not have enough space, but you should avoid blocking the windows.

Having windows in the room creates the illusion that the space is larger than it is, so blocking the windows makes the room look a lot smaller and less open. 

If you want to make the room look larger, leave the windows exposed so that light can get in.

You can also add a mirror onto the wall opposite the TV and the fireplace to make the room look bigger and maximize the light in the room.

Do not add too many mirrors as this can make the mirrors look less effective and the room will look too cluttered. 

Final Thoughts

To conclude, the best way to arrange a TV and a fireplace in a small living room is to mount the TV over the fireplace on the same wall.

This will create the main focal point of the living room and it will save on space in the room.

You can then position the furniture to face the TV and the fireplace, making the most of the space and preventing it from looking overcrowded. 

Adding decor to the room can be difficult as you want the room to look well-balanced, but adding it in the right way can make the room look larger and cozier.

You should avoid adding too much to the same wall as the TV and the fireplace as this can cause it to look cluttered.
