A proper arrangement of the furniture could accent the sliding glass doors at same time making small apartment living room more convenient for the family as well as for the guests. The sliding door to balcony or in patio being light to room and adds additional entrance and exit. This can be issue for people who décor home with four walls instead of three. Here some basic tips which will help you accentuate doors while keeping the living room comfortable and cozy.
Make layout of room, list of furniture and accent pieces.
Study layout of room and identify angle and relationship of main entrance of room and sliding glass door. Don’t arrange furniture such that it faces completely away from main entrance.
Place main seating of living room either facing or to sideways to sliding glass doors and in case main entrance is on opposite wall from sliders position the seating to face one of other two walls. In case main entrance is on wall adjacent to sliding glass door face main seating towards sliders with its side toward main entrance.
Position the secondary seating such as it faces main entrance of room. If sliders are on opposite to wall of main entrance this will mean placing seating in front of sliders and then select small pieces such as armchairs.
Space your seating according to size of available space.
Place the television or the entertainment related equipment on remaining wall. This will place entertainment equipment in view of seating area but it will not be focal point of room. Bookshelf can also be effective to fill space.
You will get light from sliding door so place art pieces and decorative items on wall opposite to doors.
Arrange rest of furniture pieces and decorative around basic layout.
If the sliders are in east or the west prepare of intense sunlight in morning or evening.
For small room secondary seating space is limited so best is not to overcrowd room with large pieces.
