Whether you do it to impress guests or to make your lounge area more comfortable, it pays to spend time sprucing up your living room.
- Display furniture: Take a cue from this couple who hung extra chairs on the wall and can take them down whenever guests arrive. Doing something similar with lightweight pieces will save you plenty of space — plus, it acts as striking decor and will certainly start up conversations.
- Tuck extras away: A trip to the flea market or resale store may uncover something like an old library-card organizer. Use it to store all the things you want to keep handy (pens, papers, phone chargers) but that you don't want everyone else to see.
- Invest in adjustable shelves: When you can move shelves up or down, you're able to rearrange your books and frames however you please; this will make a world of difference in terms of organization and flexibility.
