Many times, living spaces become somewhat of a "catch all" for belongings, toys, and other random things. By providing a place for some of these items to be stored, you can help to alleviate some of the eye-sore factor that comes with a cluttered mess. If you have wall space, consider adding a bookshelf for storage. You can use the lower shelves for larger items contained in baskets or bins and the higher shelves can be reserved for lighter items like books or accent decor. You can also utilize floor space by selecting a coffee table that doubles as a storage ottoman, which can be a home to a wide variety of random items.
A large family will need a sizeable sofa and a couple of armchairs at least to make sure everyone has somewhere comfortable to sit. If space is tight, beanbags and poufs are a smart way to sneak in extra seating, and can be stowed away easily at times when there are fewer people in the house. If you like to entertain in your living room, it’s a good idea to have a few lightweight side chairs that can be moved into more sociable arrangements when people come to visit. Small side tables or nesting tables are another handy addition, giving guests a place to perch their drinks.
Online shopping is the new normal. And while getting paper towels and your multivitamins on repeat order is a no-brainer, there are some areas of the home that most people find a little intimidating. Furniture can be a fairly large purchase for a home, and shopping sight-unseen can be, in a word, daunting. While the showroom experience appeals to many, unless you live in design meccas like New York or Los Angeles, you may have to head to the web to get the best options, brands and designs. And like buying anything online, taking your time and getting the details right can make the difference between a deal and a disaster.
