Tips On How to Choose Living Room Furniture

The living room is the hub of the house, where we spend the majority of our time laughing, relaxing, chilling, and watching television. Being the most active location during gatherings our living room furniture will have to put in a lot of effort. So, how do you go about selecting furniture that is fashionable, affordable, and long-lasting? The section below covers everything from how to choose contemporary living room furniture to more practical tips on what to look for when purchasing your items.

1.Requirement of furniture

The sofa is the central piece of furniture for every living room, it should be big enough and comfortable to accommodate guests, family members, and relatives but at the same should accommodate the room size. Buy a couple of armchairs from our online furniture store ‘My Italian Living to ensure comfortable sitting for everyone in case the sofa you already have is not that accommodating.

If you prefer an entertainment unit, opt for our designer TV units that can be customized according to your living room needs. The coffee table is also a useful addition that provides a guest spot to rest food and beverages.

2.Set up of furniture

If you have a small living room, utilize the wall space with wall-mounted modern bookcases with the customized feature available in our store. Since a small room needs more space to move, so placing your furniture against the wall is a safe option to avoid people banging their shins on coffee tables. Ideally, you need at least 50cm between each piece of furniture to allow for optimum traffic flow. If you have a bit more space to play with, bring the furniture away from the walls to create a cozy sitting area. 

3.Living room storage ideas

Good living room storage is almost as important as a good living room layout. Clutter can build up quickly in a space that’s used by the whole household every day, so everything must have its rightful place.

An extendable coffee table with storage or a hidden shelf is perfect for keeping remote controls within reach but out of sight. Our Designer TV units with open shelves, cabinets, and drawers are a great way to display decorative pieces while hiding things like a remote, or laptop that you don’t want to show. However, if you have a big living room, then go with more modern bookcases- wall-mounted or freestanding, to showcase your reading collection and some stylish piece of home décor.  

Select our exclusive range of sideboards from our contemporary living room furniture collection, which can be used as a small media unit in case you have no space for an external media unit and in case, you need some extra storage space to tuck your home essentials.

Pro tip: if you want to give an illusion of a bigger space to your living room, then add stylish mirrors to your living room décor. 


The living room is usually the most spacious and attractive area of the house, and it must appear spacious and useful while maintaining its flair. A key to selecting living room furniture is to consider the room size, price, preferences, and function. some people search for a trendy piece of furniture, while others look for comfort and function with the twist of design. Whatever may be the objective, visit our online store, My Italian Living to select furniture that fits your needs and style.
