The living room is the room in the house that no one wants to leave. How you choose to decorate this space can determine the atmosphere of the room – most everyone wants their living room to be an inviting environment for friends and family to relax. Although no one wants to intentionally ruin their living room, the following list is a sure way to do it.
1) Buying uncomfortable furniture
That sofa you saw in the store may look great, but is it actually comfortable? A good looking sofa is practically useless if you can’t sit comfortably in it. The easiest way to ruin your living room is to fill it with useless stuff. It’s important to create a comfortable environment that you can see yourself spending hours binge-watching your favorite TV show or playing a board game with family.
When overnight guests arrive at your home, expected or unexpected, it can send even the most seasoned host into a panic. Remembering to set out everything they might need can be a daunting process! That’s why we’ve gathered the best tried-and-true tips to make your visitors feel completely at home in your guest room.
1) Add a bench at the foot of the bed or purchase a folding luggage stand
Your guests will appreciate a nice surface to put their suitcase on so they don’t have to rummage through it on the floor.
2) Have some entertainment available
As your guests are winding down for the night, they may want to read or watch their favorite show for a while. Having some books, magazines and/or a TV in their room is a great way to make them feel at home. Another nice gesture is to put the Wifi password somewhere visible – maybe in a frame on the dresser?
