How To Arrange Furniture In a Living Room with a Corner Fireplace

If you're trying to arrange furniture in your living room with a corner fireplace, how do you embrace the layout and create a balanced, inviting space? Take on the challenge with our design tips below! Make sure every guest and member of your home feels cozy and relaxed with your corner fireplace and surrounding furniture. 

Embrace Your Corner Fireplace

Making your corner fireplace the center of attention in your living room may require an unconventional furniture arrangement. At least one piece of furniture should face the fireplace, and the entire arrangement should be oriented toward the fireplace.

In many cases, this means abandoning the traditional arrangements that align furniture around the walls of the room in favor of floating sofas, love seats, and chairs for a more open flow into the room and toward the centerpiece.

The arrangement should include the fireplace rather than treat it as an afterthought. With the proper furniture arrangement, you can make your corner fireplace look even more extravagant and unique!

Tips for Arranging Furniture with a Corner Fireplace

  • Use painter's tape to outline your arrangement. Before you move your furniture or bring new furniture into your living room, measure each piece carefully for length and width. Place the same length of tape on the floor where you intend on placing the furniture. This will help you to visualize your furniture arrangement.
  • Be sure to consider where the eye is drawn as you enter and sit in the room. Choose a focal point for the room, and orient your furniture around it. This will ensure an organized and balanced look. If you have a corner fireplace, this should be your center of attention. 
  • Pay attention to comfortable traffic flow, leaving enough room between pieces for people to walk. If you change your mind, relocating the painter's tape is a lot easier than moving the furniture.
