Living Room

Your living room is the space where you relax, spend time with family and entertain guests. It should be a comfortable, inviting but also functional space that everyone enjoys being in.

A warm, welcoming living room is a combination of tidiness, good organization and style. Clutter is the biggest enemy because it spoils the overall look and prevents you from making the most of your space. It also defeats the main purpose of a living room, which is to relax; it’s very hard to wind down when you are surrounded by mess and clutter.

Here are some easy hacks to help you organize your living room and keep it looking it’s very best.

  1. Consider reorganizing furniture

A bad layout can make a living room look messy, cluttered and much smaller than it is. By simply reorganizing your furniture you can create better flow and more space.
Assess how your furniture is currently placed and whether reorganizing it is an option.

For example, if your room is big enough, you can create more space by grouping furniture into mini sitting areas with room to move around in between,

You can also get rid of furniture pieces like extra tables and chairs that aren’t used. Too many rugs lamps and knick-knacks can also create a messy look so you may want to consider this as well.

  1. Use a big decorative basket or box

If you don’t have shelves or drawers in your living room, place a big decorative basket or box in a corner that will hold magazines, newspapers, remote controls, toys and other miscellaneous items – and it will look pretty as the same time!

  1. Make the best use of your coffee table If your coffee table is big enough, it can creatively be used as a storage space. stack books and magazines you are currently reading neatly on it or on the lower shelves if it has them.

You can also use the lower shelves to stack board games, and frequently-used gadgets and items.
Another way to make your coffee table more functional is by not using it as a display area for knick-knacks. Use it to hold the things that you and your family use regularly and make sure they are organized neatly.

  1. Donate duplicate items

Donating duplicate items like chairs and tables that nobody uses is a super-quick way to free up space and make a room look tidier.

This can include cushions, knick-knacks and books you won’t read again. Anything that’s just taking up space but isn’t used.

Simply sort everything and donate to someone less fortunate. Remember to thank your blessings for all that you have already!

  1. Clear up cord clutter

The most stylish living room in the world will look untidy if there’s a mess of tangled cords trailing across the floor. This can be downright dangerous as well if you have small children or pets who like to chew on things.

Thankfully, there are many clever solutions such as wall holders, cord covers and other fixtures to keep cords tidy and out of sight.

Do a quick online search and choose one that suits you best.

  1. Keep storage space in mind

When purchasing new items of furniture, chose pieces that have drawers or storage areas. This will help you stay more organized and keep clutter out of sight.

You can also invest in floating shelves and place them in creative places to keep books and other things nearly organized

Conclusion

These were just a few helpful tips to show you how easy it is to keep your living room tidy and clutter-free. However, every space and every family is different, so get creative and look more ways to organize and streamline your living space to make it ideal for you!

    before.

    see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has
    83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!

    are talking about on the internet. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. A lot more people ought to read this
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you certainly possess the gift.

  23. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  24. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s
    to be exactly I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to
    write content for you personally? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or
    elaborating on a few of the subjects you write about here.
    Again, awesome web site!

  25. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog
    writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for inexperienced
    blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  26. Heya excellent website! Does running a blog like

    blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just needed to ask.
    Appreciate it!

  27. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems
    of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of
    exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any
    methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  28. Howdy! This blog post could not be written much better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I’ll forward this article to him.

  29. Hi would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different

    quicker then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

  30. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little
    homework on this. And he in fact ordered me

    issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any suggestions?

  33. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s
    hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say that you’ve done a fantastic job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick
    for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!
