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.
Furniture is an important part of our everyday lives. When taken care of, the life span of furniture can be extended much longer. Although accidents are inevitable, there are ways to keep your furniture looking as good as the day you brought it home from the store. Taking care of the furniture you currently own can save you money instead of having to always buy something new.
1) Keep furniture out of the sun
Direct sunlight can fade and cause different materials to rip and crack over time. It’s best to place your furniture a few feet away from open windows where direct sunlight won’t directly hit it. Another option is to get protective covering to drape over your furniture, if necessary. Being in the sun for an extended amount of time can distort the original color in your furniture.
