You can use many living room appliances that can be the replacement for other stuffs, so that you don’t have to put to many objects into a small and narrow place. For example, if your living room floor doesn’t large, you can use a small table with chairs that can used for 3 purposes: dining room, working room and living room. Or you can use some table with drawer underneath to be an additional place to keep other things.
- Using cushion chairs or bench instead of living room table.
You don’t have to use a table for your living room if it’s too large or the traffic in the room is interrupted. Instead, try using cushion chairs or long benches.
