A fireplace can improve the look and feel in any space and make you feel more comfortable when then the weather is freezing. It can also help you add some radiant glow to your home. Modern fireplaces are merely a decor for the space so there is no need to cluster the furniture around it. A contemporary, minimalist interior can feat a sofa placed directly in front of the fireplace, complemented with one or two lounge chairs.

You should keep some distance between the furniture and the fireplace if you want the fireplace to be a focal point. If your living room is small, then keep the wall on which is placed free of clutter and simple. Arrange the furniture on the opposite wall, so that all those sitting there can enjoy the relaxing and calming view.

AMAZING WAYS TO ARRANGE THE FURNITURE AROUND THE FIREPLACE

If you want to create a harmonious and balanced ambiance in your home, then you should opt for a symmetrical arrangement of your furniture. You can make the fireplace a focal point and place two sofas on either side, facing each other and two armchairs right in front of it with a small table at the center. If the fireplace is placed at an angle, then you definitely can’t go with a symmetrical furniture arrangement. Try instead to turn this zone into a comfortable nook.

The truth is that corner fireplaces can be a little awkward to arrange furniture around, especially when you don’t have enough space. There is one rule: to place the edge of the rug in line with the edge of the fireplace, and then position the furniture around the rug.
