The living room is the place where people spend time together, relaxing, talking, and more. Be careful and make sure it’s not a place for any of the following five things. So look through this list and banish any of these, if they’ve been taking place in your living room.
1. Apologizing For The State Of The Room
Are from those people who apologize for the mess or for the pet hair, or for the furnishing? Do you consider saying this to any guest that happen to visit your home, particularly your living room? So stop! People don’t care about the state of your room. The important one is you, so apologizing isn’t the right way to start hosting guests.
2. Hiding Stuff Too Often
A lot of stuff hangs around in every house. Some of it isn’t used everyday and is hidden in storage boxes or double duty furniture. However, if you have used your living room’s all hidden storage spots for whatever junk or clutter you don’t use regularly, you can still have a living room that feels scattered even if everything is “technically” tucked away. Even if your eyes don’t see the stuff, you will know that it’s there, lurking and waiting to be dealt with.
3. Rarely Cleaning The Hidden Spots
The living room is the most used place in a house. Most of the time, you clean and vacuum your carpet or rug, and dust the hard surfaces, but maybe you miss to clean a few key areas that make your room look dirty. Take for instance your sofa cushions or the ceiling fan. Can you remember when was the last time you vacuumed the window coverings? There are a lot of small spots that people forget to clean, but can end up to a dirtier-than-you-realized room.
4. Angling Your Furniture Away From The Used Space
Arrange your living room according to your lifestyle – either watching movies, conversing with friends, or playing games, or something else. The key to creating a usable, functional space is arranging the furniture around the usable space. Thereupon, first decide the purpose of the living room. then arrange it. For instance, if you want a room where people can talk out, don’t arrange your seating focused on the TV set.
5. Wearing Shoes
Wearing shoes in the house is a very nasty habit. It’s a fast way to make any space dirtier that it needs to be. If the living room is very close to a home’s entry, most people just walk in with their shoes. So you can work on creating a place in the entryway, where people won’t forget to slip their shoes off. It’s a guaranteed way to keep your living room cleaner for longer.
