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.
To do away with clutter, have enough storage spaces. Create smart storage areas in the living room that will make your room look neat and organized. Think of a way that it can add beauty to the area. If you notice that there is still some clutter, maybe it is time for you to add some storage space. You can have magazine racks for your reading materials. The key to having a neat storage space it to place only the number of items that can be accommodated in your storage area. Place the excess in other storage spaces.
