My living room is 4.4 meters at its widest part. Therefore it is not very big at all and it doesn’t need to be as there is only me and a couple of cats living here most of the time.
It used to look like this -
Then it looked like this -
And now it looks like this -
I created a space i could live in. My daughter Bethany thought i had gone a little crazy when i told her what i wanted to do, but she helped me anyway. I no longer have the ability to clean and clear my house every day. It can take me several days to clean/clear just one space. The problems come when we live with too many other people’s expectations of what we should and should not do.
Here is a good idea! Go into a room and remove as much of the stuff that is in there and then only put back what you want in there. What do you do with the rest? That comes down to personal choice. Do you want to see grandmother’s vase has you walk in the room? Or is that old tattered rug seen better days and need replacing. You need to decided has you will be living in that space. Do you want to be a minimalist a live with one sofa in a white room? Or are those floral curtains really what you want to keep? It is up to you!
This is not done, the corners still need doing but they will have to wait for another day. However no matter which way you put the furniture the cat will always get the best seat in the house.
