Change is as good as rest, at times we work so hard to achieve gratification and motivation in our lives while in actual sense the answer lies right in front of us, to be precise in our living spaces. When was the last time you took a leave just to re-decorate your living room to give it that much-needed re-vitalized feel?
You may never know, perhaps that redecoration is what it takes to stir up your mind to greatness at your place of work. Researchers have placed much effort to draw up a correlation on how our environment affects our personality trait. This could to some extent add up if at all we judge people according to their home set-ups which is largely represented by the most commonly accessed area, the living room.
Use Quality Material
Invest in quality material like leather that can withstand years of wear and tear from children especially if they are still young and pets if you are fond of them. Leather is not only a durable decorative material but is also easy to manage. Leather stains can easily be wiped off with the use of a damp cloth or even a spray while still maintaining its original look over time. You can take care of scratches by opting for a distressed leather that conceals them.
A good redecoration is one that gives one the liberty to be themselves. If you are a bubbly, friendly and outgoing person, you can still maintain that atmosphere in the house by creating an exciting place by using a brightly multi-coloured striped-up or mosaic rug as the living room’s centrepiece alongside floral pillows tat fuse the colours. This will definitely serve as a beautiful indoor recreational area for the children and a beautiful place for the whole family to relax.
Perhaps you already own a Paleck chair and spend quite a fortune on it and are not about to dispose of it. Well! You can still get around it by using different sets of slipcovers and throw pillow covers as redecoration accessories depending on the occasion and mood. The advantage is that they can always be washed.
Make it Accommodative
Take an inventory of the households’ personalities and needs and use it to negotiate a compromise by providing at least something for everyone in the living room. For example, incorporate sufficient flat surfaces like a flat bench, table up to and including the floor to serve as the children’s play side. Use amenities from Ben’s furniture store of Farmingdale with doubled up functions as a built-in bookshelf with closed cabinets at the bottom for storage and open shelves on top out of reach for children while still allowing parents exhibit their favourite decorations like trophies, books and awards.
Maximize the Floor Plan
Avoid bulky furniture like TV stands which occupy unnecessary space that can be compensated for elsewhere. You can save quite some space in your living room by mounting the flat-screen TV and the surround system as a wall decoration especially if your living in a small house. You can further employ a scheme of soft neutral colours which tend to make the room look spacious.
