Design Tips: For Creating A Perfect Coastal Furniture Layout

Create a more inviting coastal design with these great coastal design tips.

Coastal Living Room

Clean Slate. It’s much easier to envision the best room design when your space is empty. Pull everything in the space out. Next you want to work out from the focal point in the space and arrange your furniture around it.

Name The Space. Consider how your space will be used, will it be the living room or family room? What is the purpose in the space, who will be using it and how will traffic flow? It should be coastal comfy and have seaside style.

Create The Floor Plan & Furniture Layout, Draw the room’s dimensions, noting the placement of windows, focal points and doorways. Using graph paper and a drafting ruler calculates your dimensions and makes the planning easier. Then measure the furniture , draw scaled replicas, cut them out so you can move them around on your floor plan so you can find the arrangement that works and fits best.

Remember these guidelines when creating your floor plan:

Allow 18 inches between the coffee table and the front of your slipcovered sofa.

Leave at least 24 inches of walking space between the coffee table and the entertainment/TV area. 

Place the largest furniture pieces first.

Conversation areas should have furniture arranged no more than 8 feet apart, and all seats should face each other for best conversation.

Remember to include adequate lighting, especially for reading areas.

Allow enough room for cabinets, doors and drawers to open easily.

Dining space, you need to keep at least 2 feet of space between the back of each chair and the wall.
