Whether your living room is your favorite room in the house or just a spot to entertain guests, you’ll want the space to be as inviting and comfortable as possible. Your living room needs a few must-haves and here’s our list of what should complete your family room’s set.
Of course, you need somewhere to sit. But the possibilities are endless when it comes to seating choices in your family room. You can choose a large sectional, an Ashely sofa, a La-Z-Boy recliner, a pair of matching armchairs, or a combination of any of these.
Rug (to protect your hardwood!)
There are many reasons that hardwood should be your living room’s flooring choice but there are also several reasons that you should lay down a rug on top of it. A rug can prevent those scratches that are inevitable from furniture feet and sandy shoes. It’s also a great buffer for tiny hands and knees looking for a space to crawl around on.
There are a few other things you might consider putting in your living room.
Beanbags – For the kids or the kids at heart, place a beanbag on the floor and sit in style. These comfortable and unique chairs are great for extra seating or fun times in the family room.
Timber Blinds – One great way to keep your home cool and the sun out is to invest in some quality blinds. These are sure to lower your energy bill by keeping the air you pay for in and the heat of the sun or chill of the winter out.
