Living rooms can have many purposes.
1. Decide what your living room will be used for and create areas for each activity – watching TV, listening to music, reading, entertaining, office/desk work, or relaxing.
2.Use task lighting as needed for each activity. Floor lamps, table lamps, wall-mounted or ceiling lights help to make the room perfect for any task.

3. Additional hidden storage can be added to the room, such as an ottoman or footstool with storage, a chest, or a coffee table with shelves or drawers. The space behind a couch is great for storing flat items such as pictures or dining room table leaves. Bookcases or floor-to-ceiling shelves can be used to decorate a wall and store items.
4. Too many pictures? Instead of trying to hang them all, rotate them each season. It will give your walls a face lift. Storing you pictures behind your couch is a great way to keep them handy but out of sight.
