Do you think the furniture and television set in your lounge room have been in their current positions for too long? If it has been six weeks, you may find reason to believe that there's no point in changing them around.
You may start to experience dissatisfaction with the present arrangement of lounge room furniture if, every time you enter the lounge room, you feel it's time for a change. Indeed, once you feel that your furniture is screaming for a change, then that is a sure sign that you need to take action.
The best thing to do is to find out what exactly the focal point of the room is. That way, rearrangement of furniture will follow its logical course. In most cases, lounge room arrangements are based on the location of the television set or coffee table. Try to move either one to a new place you're satisfied with.
Next, select your favourite couch or seat and shift that into the centre of the lounge room. If you have four other one-seat couches, arrange those in such a way that they, along with the central couch, resemble the five on a dice when viewed from the ceiling.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of rearranging your lounge room furniture is that, unlike other household inhabitants, they have no say in the matter.
My daughter feels the urge to re-arrange the furniture in her bedroom every couple of months and has been doing it since she was about eight - she's almost 18 now. It's always such a lovely surprise to enter her room after a make-over (pictures on walls and paint colours change too sometimes).
