Open spaces do attract clutter. The more space we have the more we try and fill it, often with things that could easily be tidied away if only some storage had been planned for them. Built-in cupboards are a solution here but if your room does not suit this style, then think carefully about some other options. Solid oak sideboards or oak cupboards work very well.
A good sofa is high on the list of essentials. After a hard day at work you often cannot beat just throwing open the door and collapsing in front of the TV to catch up on your favourite programmes. Or perhaps you prefer to listen to music or even just flop around and do nothing. Whatever your choice, you need a comfortable sofa as a key foundation in your design. Be careful with the size and shape - if it is too large it will simply take up too much space and dominate the room, and if it is too small you may not be able to fit as many people on it as you would like to.
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.
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.
