Often times a space only needs a few additions or shifts to feel “just right”. This Somebody’s Home reader shared a photo of her living room for the first example of this SHIFT feature. Check out the before and after photos and notice the difference a shift can make.
Along with her photo, the reader shared the following regarding the layout:
Korean apartments don’t have an interesting layout…. My living room is very square so I have hard time placing furniture.
TIP: The challenge with this space is that there are many large pieces of furniture, making the room seem angular and small. Try omitting the armchair to leave the space more open; with an area rug under the coffee table and sofas, the room still feels anchored. Another idea is to get rid of the sofa against the window and perhaps replacing it with the armchair + a small side table; this also will make the room feel less cluttered.
