Sending the right message.
Organizing a living room represents your thought process and what you want to convey to visitors or to family.
If a living room is condensed, cramped, or closed-in; it may exude a message of control or a fondness for breaking personal space. If a living room is spacious, open, or spread out; it may generate a message of openness and freedom.
Hundreds of messages can be created through the organization of a living room, and it can impress or intimidate new visitors. To avoid intimidating visitors, the best format for a living room are would be to keep it spacious and free. Walkways are important, but too much space may result in increased traffic. Chairs are best positioned at corners while couches are best served as the framework.
Since the room's purpose is for socialization or communication, it must be appropriately organized to keep all within view and to establish a sense of comfortable equality.
Communication is present in everything that we do.
