Toys can be seen in the living room especially when the kids stay there during the day. You can do away with this by having a playroom. All their toys will be placed inside the room and they do not need to carry it anywhere for everything is already there. Inside the playroom, have a children's table, a bookcase and some storage places for their toys to make sure that it will also look organized.
If you have observed that trash has accumulated in the living room, it might be time for you to place a wastebasket to trim down clutter. This is applicable especially if you have kids in the house who would be throwing their trash anywhere. Be smart in choosing a wastebasket and in placing it in the living room. Make sure that it would fit in the room's decor. Always deodorise your trash bags to avoid foul smell. Also, use one that has a cover or a lid so that it would not be ugly to look at.
Most often, a living room has a focal point like a fireplace or a television set. You can arrange your furniture around your focal point. As you do this, allow some open space for easy access when one walks into the living room. If you have a large area, you can have more than one set of sofas or conversation area to do away with an empty look. You can also use larger furniture for your space.
