5 Ideas to Make Your Living Room A Better Place to Live

Everybody wants to have a perfect home, and the living room is considered to be its face. Thus, you, like anybody else, would like to arrange your room in the most breath-taking way.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

That’s why we are here: to check what you might need and to see how it can be achieved.

Unclutter Your Space

A cluttered room never looks mice even if the items there are of the best quality. Thus, uncluttering your living room is your main task.

To do so, check if you can get rid of some things. Those can be old furniture pieces, accessories, etc. If you don’t find such things or if even after that, your living room doesn’t look as it shall, try to apply some advanced solutions to improve the situation.

A TV Lift Will Make Space

If you have a brand-new TV set, you know how much space it takes. Moreover, in some households, it isn’t even fixed on a wall but is just accommodated on a cabinet.

An advanced TV lift mechanism is your solution. Just imagine that the huge and, most likely, incredibly expensive item can be hidden in a cabinet. If you want your living room to look high-tech, a ceiling-mounted TV lift installation shall be interesting to you.

Automated Shelves to Use the available Space More Efficiently

You know how inconvenient all those old-fashioned shelves are. But still, you might need them because there are too many things to store. What about automating your shelves?

Divide a shelf into two parts: the front one and the backside one. Separate the two parts with a sheet of plastic, a piece of MDF, wood – whatever you believe is fine for your interior. Now, automate the backside. It shall be able to move down by exposing the available space. In the upper position, the shelf looks like a normal shelf but the space inside is more limited.

Now, you don’t need to arrange things that you don’t use in all those far corners. What to do with those things? Just throw them away. Now, you can place there items that you really need, and access them easily.

A Reclinable Chair for the Comfort You Deserve

After a long working day, we want just to stretch on a comfortable chair and watch a favourite movie. With a reclinable chair, you can appreciate these moments even more.

Remaking your good old chair into a reclinable one might be complicated. We would recommend buying one. It is an investment in your comfort and health.

Add Some Green to Make the Room Look Friendly

If you don’t have allergic reactions to plants, they are always to place. They make your living-room friendlier, healthier, and more beautiful. They also produce oxygen which will have a positive impact on your health.

Aesthetically, nothing can be compared to the bright flowers of your favourite plant. Don’t forget though that a dry or sick plant not only doesn’t add to aesthetics but might pose a danger to your health. Also, if there are small kids or pets, check in advance whether the plant is not venomous. Once you make sure the plant is safe, you can bring it to your home.

Pictures and Accessories Demonstrate the Taste of the Owner

Here, we would agree that people are different. Some people love filling all the available spaces with accessories, paintings, photos, etc. Others prefer minimalistic designs. We would say though that even in the most minimalistic living room, there is always a place for a good painting. It will create a focal point in the room and demonstrate your taste.

But in the very end, it all depends on your taste and budget. Just make sure all those beautiful statuettes, frames, photos, etc. don’t look as if you put them just for the sake of demonstrating them to your visitors. it makes your room look messy even if each piece is perfectly clean.

Final Thoughts

Your living room is the place where the main part of your life is going on. There, you rest after work, watch TV, communicate with your family. In the living-room, you receive your friends and relatives. Thus, try to arrange it conveniently.

It is clear that if you want to make it look modern and beautiful, you need to invest. Some items, such as a good TV lift, might cost a lot. To purchase other automated solutions, you will need to make some effort, too. Thus, if you cannot afford all of them, you can consider some DIY projects and automate some furniture pieces. Some of the automation projects are simple enough, you don’t require to have special skills.

Now, you can have a look at your living room. Check what things can be removed or hidden behind an automated panel. Consider automation ideas that you can apply there, and move on with the creation of the perfect hub for you and your family.
