Furnishing Your Living Room

Tips for Furnishing a Living Room

When you shop for living room furniture and accessories, keep the purpose of the room forefront in your mind. Typically, this is a room where a lot of living will happen. It’s a room where family and friends will gather for fun, togetherness and much more. You want the furnishings you select to be compatible with your lifestyle and with the activity level of your family.

Make a General Plan

Before you buy your first piece of living room furniture, sketch out a plan depicting the final layout of the room. Measure the space where you plan to put seating, tables and the entertainment center. Be sure to leave plenty of room for easy traffic flow through the room. This is essential if you have young children who will be running and playing in the room. It’s good to have an unobstructed flow through the room whenever you entertain or when elderly family members with mobility issues visit.

Choose a Style

Browsing through living room furniture in Mesa is a good way to discover what types of furniture appeals to you. A small conversation area that leaves an open play area for the kids might be conducive to your lifestyle. A large sectional sofa with oversized ottoman might be ideal if you have children or teens that love lounging while watching television. Comfort is a key element in a living room where the family spends a lot of time.

Make Practical Choices

If you’re furnishing a living room that will be a place for kids, pets and adults to hang out, you’ll want to select furniture with upholstery that is stain-resistant and tough enough to withstand pet paws and energetic kids. Even if you’re not worried about the kids or pets staining the upholstery, there’s always a chance of spills occurring when you entertain guest. A lot of different activities may go on in the living room. Therefore, you might want to create some individualized spaces. Depending on your lifestyle, your living room might need a reading nook, an entertainment area and a space for adults to relax.

Furnish the living room so that it will be everyone’s favorite room in the house. Opt for durable and practical if you have small children. You can go for elegance after the kids grow up.

Swago Spring Edition Is Here! #Swagbucks

The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during their "Swago: Spring Edition" promotion, which runs from now through Monday, March 12th at 9am PT! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you're filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you're thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great chance to learn all about how the site works and earn bonus points while doing it, meaning you can get more gift cards faster. Here are a few tips: 

  • Each square on your Swago Board will contain an action item to complete. They can be anything from getting a search win, completing a survey, or just visiting one of our popular stores!
  • Once you complete the action item in a particular square the square will change color signifying the action item is complete.
  • You have until 12pm PT/3pm ET on Monday, March 12th to mark off as many squares as possible so use your time wisely.
  • Be mindful of the patterns and their corresponding bonuses located on the right of your Swago Board. The patterns will vary in difficulty and bonus value. Once you’ve achieved a pattern, the corresponding “Submit” button will light up. You can have multiple patterns available for submission, however, you can only submit ONE pattern so choose wisely.
  • Each activity you successfully complete on your Swago Board will give you anywhere from 1-20 spins on the Spin & Win Wheel. PLUS, when you submit your board for a bonus you'll get additional spins. The number of spins will depend on the pattern you complete. The wheel has all sorts of great prizes that you can win, and each spin is a winner!

The Spin & Win Wheel will be available all throughout Swago and you have until 11:59pm PT on Monday, March 12th to use all your spins. 

Fill up your board and then submit your pattern to get even more points - if you can fill in the whole board, you get a 500 SB bonus, which is enough for a $5 gift card from the retailer of your choice.  

Click here right now and click "Join" to get started! If you don't already have a Swagbucks account, you'll be able to quickly sign up; PLUS, if you earn 300 SB before the first of January, you'll get a bonus 300 SB!

If you haven't tried Swagbucks before, you can get a bonus $3 for signing up as my referral in March. Swagbucks is a rewards site where you earn points (called SB) for things you're probably doing online already, like searching, watching videos, discovering deals, and taking surveys. Then you take those points and exchange them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, or PayPal cash.
