The living room
by Deb from Mink Home Staging.
- Do not use oversized furniture and remove all small excess items to create a sense of space & “flow”
- I recommend using a large rug to add softness & warmth
- Bookshelves should not be filled entirely with books! Fill up only 50% of available shelves- and don’t only use books. Add some small picture frames, simple vases and décor items.
- Coffee tables complete a living area as they make the room looked lived in and more ‘usable’ and I would always recommend using one if you have the space. However, I often see coffee tables that are either too large, heavy and dark or too small and looking lost. Make sure you consider proportion, colour and style of this piece and add a few books & some accessories to create instant appeal.
