This arrangement is suitable for pedants, people who love perfect order. Symmetry is especially appropriate in square or rectangular rooms. Choosing a symmetrical method, you need to visually find the center of the living room, draw an imaginary axis through it. The central place in such an interior is usually occupied by a large and bright object, for example, a sofa. All other furniture should be placed symmetrically about an imaginary axis. Interestingly, this axis can connect the centers of the walls in a rectangular room and run diagonally in a square one. To prevent a symmetrical setting from being boring, it is recommended to think over color contrasts or play with the shape of the pieces of furniture. In walk-through rooms, rooms of irregular shape or kitchen-living rooms, it is best to use an asymmetric method. To maintain harmony, it is recommended to visually balance large objects with small ones, but collected in a group. For example, opposite a high partition with a TV, you can install a sofa and a small table. A circular arrangement of furniture is most acceptable for living rooms of the correct shape, because it allows you to create cozy functional areas. The easiest way to create a beautiful one is to move paper furniture mockups across the living room floor plan.
