What pieces of furniture and storage etc do you have in yours? Including the little things eg magazine racks and toy boxes? We are decluttering as ours is ridiculous but would be useful to have a benchmark!

Two sofas
Coffee table
TV bench
Two side tables

The only storage we have is a couple of drawers in the coffee table for things like remotes and magazines.

5 seater corner sofa. Armchair, footstool with built in storage, grown up console wot the boys aren't allowed their toys on, IKEA Levsvik TV cabinet with extra bolts inside, battered old metal computer desk, small set of dark oak nesting tables - also battered but bought very cheaply second hand - quite cute and useful. There's a spare chair comes in and out from the dining area (through lounge!) to be used at the computer table.

2 sofas and an armchair,
A footstool,
A bookcase,
TV unit,
Tall narrow wooden drawers containing CDs,
and a small 2 drawer unit that the phone sits on and a couple of magazines etc.
Oh and a log basket!

We had a de clutter when we had wood floor put down. It looks much better without the stuff we had before.

One L shaped couch, a coffee table with no internal storage, matching TV shelf and TV, wine rack (mostly empty hmm) and a very small collection of toys.

We live in a new house where the kitchen, dining room and lounge are totally open plan so I have as little stuff as possible. The overflowing bookshelf and toys are in the second lounge that is used as a play room and has a door that shuts it all away.

Dining table and 4 chairs

It's a fairly large room smile

Are you happy in your lounge? Do you have enough breathing space? Are you more or less tidy or able to clear up reasonably quickly. Do your belongings give you pleasure and comfort? A home is about comfort, not meticulous tidiness. I
I like a cheery room,containing things I enjoy ahead of a recipe for placing furniture etc in particular places. Relax and enjoy your home and family.
