What would you do if you hated your living room? It’s the most enjoyable place in the home for most people and if you didn’t want to spend any time there it would make for a boring life. The kitchen is a lovely room that ensures you never go hungry, but you definitely wouldn’t want to spend much time in there. Everyone loves to sleep and the bedroom is high up on the list, but when you spend too much time in your bedroom you feel like your life is passing you by.

Nowhere comes close to the living room and that means you want to make yours look amazing. Not just decent, but amazing.

A fish tank is definitely not the cheapest thing in the world you can add to your living room, but once it’s installed it’ll look like your room is worth a million bucks. The enjoyment and relaxation you will get from looking at it is worth all the hassle. If you’re going to get one you need to remember that fish don’t feed themselves and the tank can’t clean itself. You’ll need to either learn how to deal with both of them, or hire someone who can do it for you.

How great would you feel when watching TV if you could just kick back your chair and swing your feet up?

You certainly won’t get bored of sitting around in the living room watching TV all day and it’s possible you might forget to eat because you don’t want to get up.

Throw out most things

One of the best things about this plan is that having less stuff equals less stress, plus you have less cleaning to do.
