The first step that gets things moving along is designing a firm, fixed schedule for cleaning your home. It doesn’t matter whether you do it every day or once a week or even once a month; but having a well-defined schedule is crucial. It is one thing to have a schedule and a whole different proposition when it comes to following it strictly and without fail. Have the discipline to do so.
Would you want your car parked right inside your home? For many, it could appear bizarre. But there are a few who think otherwise. There are indeed many who cannot bear even the thought of leaving their beautiful beasts out while they sleep inside in luxury. Let’s look at how the décor of your home would change if you decide to park your car right inside your living room.
Both the sofa and the trunk look cool and fun, adding a tinge of color to any home decor. But the question is, are you going to be just as excited when the Olympics games are over?

If you are living in a shared house with your friends, assign specific tasks to each member of the home as this helps in avoiding unwanted hassle and tussles during cleaning.

Be sure there is plenty of seating and, if possible, arrange all furniture so those seated in the living room will have a clear view of each other and the entertainment center if one exists.
The light is filtered through a precious shade of reflecting and refracting mouth-blown glass and polymethylmethacrylate beads to create subtle and intricate models on the walls.
Painting walls with stripes is a good trick. Horizontal stripes make the room spacious, whereas vertical stripes give an impression that walls are taller than they appear. Use multi-purpose furniture wherever possible. For instance, an ottoman can serve as cushion, footrest or coffee table. Lots of space are thus saved, which would otherwise be consumed by separate pieces of furniture.
Next we see a New York City loft living room, which reminds us of how 3-sided seating can be perfect for large spaces. In other words, create a U-shape with your sofas and chairs, moving them away from the wall if necessary. Add a fun touch here and there, like the 1960s Pedro Friedeberg Hand chair and Alvar Alto lounge chairs shown below.
