What is Living Room?
Every residential building has a living room(L.R.), L.R. means the room we used to set up our T.V. Sofa set or many entertaining resources. When we enter the house from the main gate, The L.R. is the first room we enter in. Everyone in the house uses the L.R. because it is the room that consists of everything. We let the guests stay in the L.R. The LR is also known as the hall, there is no difference between the LR and the hall. You can refer to the below image to clarify your doubt about the LR.

The Standard Sizes Of Living Room.
There is no rule for standard size for the living room, It depends on our requirement and your plot size. Below we will suggest minimum sizes, Medium sizes, and Big sizes for the living room.
Minimum Sizes of Living Room.
The minimum size for the LR should not be less than 10’x12′ feet. Because we have to keep a lot of stuff like the Sofa set, TV unit, and Tea Table. If our LR is less than the minimum size, then it will be complicated to use. But if your plot size is small then, you can take even less size than the minimum size.
Medium Size of Living Room.
The medium size of the LR should not be less than 14’x18′ feet. Because we have to keep a lot of stuff like the Sofa set, TV unit, and Tea Table. If your LR is less than the minimum size, then it will be complicated to use. But if your plot size is small then, you can take even less size than the minimum size.
Big Size Of Living Room.
There is no limit for the big size of LR. It totally depends upon your requirements and your plot size. As per our opinion, the big size of LR should not be less than 14’x18′ feet. The size of the windows should be large for the large size of the Living Room so that fresh air and sunlight come into our room. Furniture should also be more for a large room so that it does not leave a blank.
