Now think about what you actually need, and what you might desire to have space for - in other words, separate your needs from your wants. For instance, you might need space for a sofa, TV and music, lighting and a coffee table and sideboard. You might want space for toys and books, DVD and CD storage and your hi-fi speakers. What you can actually fit into your room will depend on the size and shape of the space you have. You may have to be ruthless in your choices - it is important to obtain a balance between the areas taken up with furniture and open areas you use for access around the room.
When opting for a traditional décor it is advisable to select furniture that represents many styles and eras, from Chippendale to Queen Anne and Sheraton to Victorian. Small touches of Oriental influences also look very attractive in this setting. Painted landscapes, a Queen Anne table or lampshade or a Chippendale highboy will immediately give your living room a traditional touch.
Before buying a living room sofa, make sure that you have measured the area of your room where you will be placing your sofa. However, if you have decided to transform your room completely, then it would be helpful to take measurements of the whole living room. You might have an idea of placing the sofa against the wall but what if you change your mind later on? A perfectly sized sofa will adjust itself to any corner of the room. A large over sized sofa will cramp up a small room whereas a small sofa would go unnoticed in a big room.
This is where you need not go minimalistic at all. Get a large TV screen, the larger the better, not so large that it grabs all the attention though. There is nothing like enjoying a sports match or watching a movie with friends and family on your television screen in your living room. Make sure the screen is placed at n appropriate distance from the seating furniture; it should be neither too near nor too far. Do not let your imagination go wild and keep the wall simple on which the TV screen is mounted.
