3 Essential Pieces of Living Room Furniture

Your living room is one of the most important rooms in your house or apartment. It is where you are going to spend a lot of your time, so it is important that is fit for purpose and that you enjoy being in there. There are some essential pieces of furniture that should be in your living room, and here they are:


You need to have a couch. You might go for a classic two-three seater, or you might want to get a corner or L-shaped couch. These will fit better into the corners of your room and make better use of the space you have available. The last thing you want is for your couch to be too small and for you to have to squish on to it and for it to be an uncomfortable experience. As well as the couch, you will also want to have some cushions and a throw. These make the couch look much nicer and can be used to add extra colors and jazz up the room. The cushions are also great for cuddling up to, and the throw can help make the couch much softer to sit on and can even double as an extra blanket for those cold winter nights. The throw will also help catch and spills and stop you from damaging the couch as easily. Since the throw can be easily washed and dried and the couch can’t, it can be a real life saver.


You should have some sort of table in your living room. That might be a side table next to the couch with magazines and space for the TV remote or a coffee table in front of the both the TV and couch. Each will serve a different purchase, so you might even want both. You can find coffee tables for sale from plenty of furniture stores and they come in many different shapes and sizes. This means that the perfect coffee table for you might be the worst possible option for someone else. This makes shopping around important. When it comes to side tables, you want something that is roughly the same height as your couch and has a good number of storage compartments. However, it really does depend on what you want to use the side table for as to which one you get. Either way, a table of some kind is rarely missing from any decent living room.

TV Stand--

What else is your TV going to sit on other than a TV stand? You want to get one that has enough space under the TV for games consoles or satellite/cable boxes. You might also want to leave room for DVD/Blu-Ray and game boxes, too. TV stands come in a lot of different sizes and styles, too. This means that you will want to get one that works best for your specific TV’s size and the style of your room. It can sometimes be best to get your coffee table and TV stand at the same time so that the style is consistent.
