There are many different kinds of living rooms. Done up in many styles of décor. But there is one common thing that applies to all kinds of décor styles – Nothing in excess and ugly things out of sight!
Here are 10 things that definitely don’t belong in your living room and might be making it look, far from perfect. Let’s change things a little, shall we?
1. Ugly Wires
Cables snaking in and out of gadgets haphazardly can make a room look ugly and unkempt. But wires are inevitable. So what can you do about them? Get creative or hide them.
2. Clutter On The Coffee Table
A coffee table is a clutter magnet in every home. Make it a habit to keep clearing it, every time you pass by it.
3. Conversation Stoppers
The seating in your living room should be such that it encourages easy conversations. Make sure you get rid of everything that hinders them. Keep it warm and inviting!
4. Too Many Lamps
Lights help you highlight the aesthetics of a room But too many lights can make the room look cluttered. Time to find people to give them away to!
5. Stacks of Old Newspapers And Magazines
Get rid of the stacks of old newspapers and magazines lying around in your living room. Don’t wait for cleaning day. Get into a habit of putting them away for recycling the moment you’re done reading them.
6. Extra Furniture
Too much furniture, even if it’s beautiful and elegant, breaks the décor of a space. Keep things light and spacious. Find friends to donate extra furniture to.
7. CDs and DVDs
Let’s get real. Noone uses CDs and DVDs anymore. And no, they don’t make for great displays. Trash them.
8. Too Many Décor Elements
There’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. You don’t have to put everything beautiful that you own, on display. Rotate your pieces. Keep your décor light on the eyes.
9. Fake Plants
In the décor world, fake plants belong only in one place. The trash. Get rid of them.
10. Exercise Equipment
A living room is no place for exercise equipment. Find a new home for it.
