What with COVID-19 and the Christmas festivities, we have seen a lot of our living room recently. Perhaps after 2020 it is now time to give this much-used room a facelift and invest in a new sofa. Alternatively, by adding a statement chair or rug, or even just a new painting, we can give the space a fresh lease of life. The layout of the room should always be carefully thought through so that it is functional for everyday use. For example, if the household members are television watchers, seating should be placed so that everyone can view the TV set comfortably.
