DESIGNING A LIVING ROOM | SIZES

LIVING ROOM SIZES: To allow for comfortable  arrangement of furniture, spacious feel and easy movement in a Living room, some minimum basic sizes should be followed as suggested here:
WIDTH:

  1. In small sites though it is difficult to have wide living rooms, one should  at least have the bare minimum width of 11’0″. If this can be increased to 12’0″ or at least 11’6″, then it will allow for the comfortable arrangement of a furniture group along the width of the Living room.
  2. A comfortable width for a Living room is  13’0″.
  3. A luxurious width will be about 15’0″ or even more, depending on the size of the site and  budget.

LENGTH:

  1. In a small site, the length of a Living room can be a minimum of 15’0″, in order to have a reasonably spacious feel and to arrange two seating groups.
  2. A comfortable length for a Living room will be at least 18’0″, as this allows for spacious arrangement of seating groups, easy movement space as well as comfortable distance for TV viewing.
  3. A luxurious length will be 20’0″ and above. This solely depends on the site size, budget, and how often and how many people have to be entertained. It also depends on whether there is requirement for additional furniture like a Piano, or a Game table for cards etc.

  1. BASIC MINIMUM11’0″ x 15′0″ and above.
  2. COMFORTABLE – 13’0″ x 18’0″ and above.
