The living room is a place where we spend a lot of our time. It’s the one room in the house where we go to relax, chill out and forget about the stresses of the day. There are many things we all do in there; watch tv, read books, play board games, chat with friends or just lay on the sofa listening to music.
Due to the fact that it’s such a key part of every household it is important for us to make it as cosy and comfortable as possible. So we have taken the time here in the office to discuss what we think are 3 items that every living room must have.
The sofa is a key component of any living room, so it is imperative that you make the right choice – you may even have more than one. The main things you need to look for in a sofa are; comfort, size, design (how it matches the rest of the room) and how easy it is to clean especially if you have kids.
A rug adds so much to a room and can also give you that always needed comfort for your feet. Sheepskin rugs are perfect for making you feel cosy during the colder months and they seem to match every room, their design appears timeless. They also look super cosy too which means you’ll feel relaxed even if you don’t have your toes on it.
The lighting always needs to be spot on in a living room because the room has so many functions. We think that a lamp or two works wonders, plus dimmer switches for the ceiling lights. This way someone can be reading a book in one part of the room under the lamp whilst another person has the lights dimmed watching a movie – it also means there will be less arguments over whether to have the lights on or off!
