There are a considerable number of ways in which you can plan the living room with a TV. If you have a living room with fireplace, first is to mount the television on to the wall which is adjacent to the fireplace. Your sofa sets and the chairs of living can then be arranged in an L-shape opposite to the television. Make sure that one of the arm of the ‘L’ shaped arrangement, points to the fireplace and the other one to the TV. Behind the seating arrangement you can also have a living room table which you can use as a game table, dining table and also as a general writing-table. Make it a point to orient (point) chairs around the table in the direction of the television so that you can easily view the television. Now this kind of arrangement is best used where you hang or mount your TV set on the wall. Alternatively, a large entertainment unit placed on a ground-based support such as a showcase also works equally good. Then, living room with large seating arrangement, sometimes, the seating arrangements tend to consist of several elements or pieces such as more than one sofa set, 4-5 chairs or so.
The sheer bulk and large number of pieces often makes the furniture unmanageable, especially while doing a layout. Here you can use a good centerpiece, such as a small glass top table or a very short and small island in the middle and set the seating pieces in such a manner that they surround the centerpiece in a ‘U’. In such a case you, can mount up your television on the wall, which is nearest to the seating arrangement. If you want to orient the seating arrangement in another way that too, in accordance with the TV in the living room, then you also have the option of arranging it in a ‘C shape’.
