Since the before post, we had the fireplace installed and the drywall hung, taped, and plastered. We (I) did the priming and painting ourselves to save a little bit of money. Somehow the room grew in size even though we bumped out 21″ from the wall. I guess that's what happens when you draw the eye up and wide. Let's talk about storage for a second. Because we have a tiny 3-yr-old that has toys spilling out her nose. Someone asked why we went for non-functioning wood as opposed to cabinets below the benches. It's a really good question. This may sound crazy, but I didn't want to add anymore storage. Because when you have more storage, you fill it. And just a couple steps away, we have plenty of storage for her toys in the dining room (reveal coming soon). A couple steps more, and she can get to the rest in the office. There's one hidden spot of toys in the living room though. Underneath that side table is a basket of legos. That's it.
Don't make the TV your full-time focal point. Televisions, like smartphones, can deter conversation. Don't let your TV take away your valuable social connections. If you have the space in your home, move your TV to another room, such as a den. This way, you can actually live in your living room, whether that's talking to your significant other, kids or friends you're entertaining. If your TV must go in the living room, consider concealing it behind cabinetry. You can also partially or fully insert it into a wall niche or built-in and add doors, as shown here. Is your living room functional but not as inviting as you'd like? Don't fret. There are several simple ways to make it feel more like a room you actually want to hang out in.
