The living room is often a gathering place for family, it’s where we settle in together to share our day, watch a movie, read, play games and the list goes on. In the colder months of the year when winter sets in, the living room becomes even more important to families as a gathering place when being outdoors isn’t comfortable any longer. With a few quality pieces of furniture and some added comforts, the living room can be an inviting place to spend time with loved ones.
Furniture in the living room should be both comfortable and easy to care for. Seating spaces such as couches and chairs should be cozy and inviting, with ottomans and coffee tables within reach for foot props and a place to put drinks and television remotes. With comfortable seating spaces, the family will enjoy spending time there and be more likely to gather than to scatter. Bean bags are another great furniture idea for seating spaces, especially for kids.
Pillows and Throws
Cozy comfort is a key part of the family living room, most especially during the winter season when the weather outside is frightful. Warm, snuggly throws and blankets tossed about on the couches and chairs make for a cozy space to curl up and read a book, watch television, and just generally hang out together. Pillows in soft textures invite snuggling and settling in together.
Carpets and Rugs
When setting up your living room for winter, it is important to remember the floor space. Uncovered floors are often chilly and hard, making them uncomfortable and not very inviting for kids and family. By choosing soft carpets and rugs, you can cover the floor space in the living room, keeping feet from getting cold and providing extra play space for kids. Little ones almost always want to be playing on the floor, so by keeping the floor coverings warm and textured, they can play in comfort.
By taking the time to choose quality, useful furniture and warm, inviting coverings for the body and the floor, you can make your family’s living room a great space to hang out and enjoy time together. While it’s likely to be cold and harsh outside, inside it can be warm and inviting in the living room. The living room set up for winter comfort can be a place to make memories that will last a lifetime. We invite you to come visit our store and find the perfect piece for you.
