Living Room

Your living room should be a space you can actually, well, live in. So think about the chaos on the coffee table and the cords that are creeping all over the floor—can you clear them out to eliminate some clutter? Real Simple has compiled living room organization ideas that will work no matter the size or layout of your room. Lacking square footage? Top designers have weighed in and shared their tips for creating the illusion of more space, including which paint colors to use and how to fake bigger windows. Consider furnishing your space with double-duty pieces, like a storage bench or multi-purpose coffee table so that remotes and extra blankets can be tucked out of sight when not in use. And if your living room is in need of a deep clean but you don’t know where to begin, our 11-step guide will help you eliminate any dust bunnies and cobwebs.
