When sorting your living room, it's important to arrange the space so it's practical, but also so it's pleasing to the eye. You'll need to center the TV so that everyone will have a nice view of what's going on. It's best to arrange your room so that the TV is the centerpiece then, even if we're dealing with small spaces.
Consider TV sizes — don't buy a TV that's too large for the space you live in — and buy only what you need. While a larger TV can be tempting, it may be impractical for a small room or apartment.
Ensure that the TV is put at an optimal level for comfortable viewing — ask your partner or family member to help you get it just right. You'll also want to leave room for speakers if you have any. Mounting a TV on the living room wall is the most unintrusive way of decorating a room, but if you don't want to deal with a wall mount, then consider placing the TV on a nice stand or in a shelving unit that can double as a bookcase.
