5 Ways to position your couch

So let’s look at five different ways to position your couch in your mobile home. Most American households feature a couch in the living room. It’s a staple piece of furniture. Of course, these couches can vary in size, pattern, and fabric. Regardless of your style tastes, there’s a couch to suit anyone and everyone.

You’ll know how to position your couch in a way that complements your room. 

It’s all about balance and functionality when it comes to positioning your couch in your mobile home.

1 – For a window with a view

If you have a rather large window, you’ll want to take advantage of the grand view it affords. Set your cozy couch up against the wall, across from the window. This will be an eye-pleasing setup thanks to your room’s architectural design with the window. 

For another decorative tip, you can make your windows look bigger and grander with a few tricks. Consider some interior design tricks to make your windows look amazing. Don’t lock yourself in to what you see in your mobile home at first glance. There’s room to adjust the design and make it shine in a way that some might not think of at first glance. 

2 – Sofa to sofa

In the event that you find your living room boasts two sofas, this idea is for you. Situating the sofas so that they are facing each other brings balance to a room. If you have a small living room, you may wish to pass over this idea. However, if your living room is spacious, it may be just the layout you’ve been looking for. 

Another praiseworthy aspect of this design is that it’s conducive to hospitality. You can sit across from your company while engaging in enriching conversation. There’s no need to turn or tilt your head for a better view — your guests will sit directly across from you.

3 – Get some sun by the window

If your couch is just the right size, you can position it in front of the window, facing into the room. 

This can be a good look for your room, but you’ll want to make sure there’s about a foot of space between the couch and window for your window treatments. Additionally, this works best if the couch is built with a low back.

4 – Make the mantel the focal point

The mantel in any living room is, without a doubt, the focal point. Place your furniture in such a way as to highlight the mantel. 

Cozy armchairs are a must in this design. So while the couch is certainly a focus, don’t forget to cozy up your living room where a mantel is involved.

5 – Winning with an exceptionally large living room

For those of you who have exceptionally large living rooms — you have space to be a little more adventurous with your couch placement. You can place your couch in the middle of the room or in front of the room’s doorway.

If you choose to place it in front of the door, be careful that you’re not blocking the doorway. There ought to be ample space for foot traffic between the door and the back of your couch.

A couch isn’t just a place to sit. It serves as a key feature of your mobile home’s living room. It’s a place where you entertain your guests. It’s also a place where you kick back and enjoy a relaxing evening.
