Location of the living room should be appropriate. It may be positioned to supplement the dinning area and outdoor living area. But it should not be a passage way. Rooms proportion, shape  and layout are more important than the actual dimensions. 

  • Typically 11'0" x 14'0" if a single conversation circle is planned
  • If circulation through the space is needed a width of 16'0" could be used.
Furniture placement : Size of living room and furniture vary dramatically depending the economic status and lifestyle of the user and relationship of room to the other area's.
