For many of us the living room is connected to family activities and fun you can have on your spare time, watching shows and generally relaxing. For a lot of families and homes however it serves as a dining room and living room at the same time. This will make the living room work out a lot better if you work on subtle changes instead of going too big with what you may have planned. Pinpointing your exact needs will make transforming your living room a lot easier and much more useful in the long run, as it will lower your expenses, allowing for much easier house cleaning and specifically carpet cleaning as well.

If you are wondering whether it is a good idea to work on a larger scale decorating solution, then you will need to consider making use of decals and paint.

  • When I need furnishings and other home stuff, I look to a marketplace of “used” items. All the furnishing in my living room (excluding the artwork) were found on my local craigslist website (couch, lamps, ottoman, chairs, side tables and throw rug). Not only did I save water by purchasing “old” versus “new,” but I saved a whole lot of money. All the furniture cost me just shy of a $1000.
