How can I change my furniture around in my living room?


Do you have any free advice or plans for changing up our living room. I've been debating if I should buy a new sofa but I really want a change. Their no sense buying anything if I can't change things up. I see all these nice pictures and I wonder how they do that. Any advice where to look?

    You really need to include 2-3 pictures so that people can give you specific advise. Your question is just too general.

  • Look everywhere! Magazines, Pinterest, etc. Don't forget that anything you see in a magazine or on tv is professionally "staged" just for the photo shoot, magazine layout or tv show. It is not how people really live. I move stuff around until I get a set up I like. Nothing to wonder about, it is generally just what looks good mixed in with just plain old common sense. If you like what you have done it works! It's not magic, it can be learned or some people are just born with a sense of style. Go take a design course at a local college extension to learn the basic principles.

    • Grab a friend or two and start moving things around. Then live with it a bit. Your furniture isn't bolted to the ground, everything can change when ever you want them to.

    Really need to see pictures to offer any decent type of advice Need to see room/wall/door/window lay-out and the furniture you have

  • Hi Dorothy,

    A picture of your living room would be helpful. When I need ideas I look on Pinterest. I recommend searching living rooms and seeing pictures that have a similar layout to your living room to get ideas of what could work.

    Before you move the main pieces, remove the distractions: pillows, throws, plants, knickknacks, pictures, books etc... Clear the shelves, mantels, tabletops. Once you are down to basics, rearrange until you like the change. Reintroduce the decor you removed gradually, if needed.

    Dimensions of the room as well as layout, pictures would be a bonus. Then you can get some real help.
