When I think of a living room, two things come in to my mind instantly: entertainment and guests.
Entertainment is an essential part of every living room because of the television, DVD player, digital set-top box or stereo equipment. In majority of homes these devices exist there and we like to entertain ourselves for example by watching television, movies or listening to music. Also, your guests are going to be sitting in your living room couch for the most of the time during their visit, since it’s one of the most convenient places (in addition to kitchen) to have a conversation and have a great time. Then there is also education, which may also be part of your living room – at least it is part of mine. I for sure like to read and I have found living room to be one of the best places for that activity.
The ideal living room is very simple but functional. Sofas and chairs are located so, that it’s easy for guests to discuss with each other and have a good time. Television, DVD player, digital set-top box or stereos are located so, that they are easy to reach, use and see.
