It is that time of the year again! As we are preparing our homes to welcome our close friends and relatives, we want to make our spaces as comfortable as possible. Here are some tips on how you can change your space to make it Raya ready!
Floor Sofa Beds
A terrific way to ensure that your guests are comfortable would be to invest in a floor sofa bed! They ensure that everyone gets a seat and doubles as a real bed, perfect for impromptu sleepovers. They are also easy to unfold and move, which will come in handy for iftar.
Unlike sofas, floor sofa beds often provide you with the flexibility to decide the kind of layout you and your guests would prefer. This helps with maximizing the seat capacity, allowing you to enjoy quality time with your family and friends.
Sofa so good
The sofa is usually one of the first things guests notice when they first enter your home. Changing your sofa from time to time will help make your living room look fresher and more vibrant.
Typically, sofas have a life span of about 7 to 15 years. However, if the cushions are flat and the lumbar support is gone then you might want to consider changing your sofa as soon as possible. An L-shaped sofa would be a worthwhile investment.
L-shaped sofas come with generous seating areas, allowing you to seat 3-4 guests at a time. On top of that, it takes up less space than having 2 separate modular sofas in your living room. Finally, it allows you to utilize corner spaces in the living room, leaving you with ample space for other living room essentials.
Your home is not Raya ready without a good, sturdy side table. Side tables are by far one of the most important pieces of furniture for your living room. Though often overlooked, side tables are perfect for holding your drinks or even books when you are seated in the living room. Side tables are especially useful for bigger living rooms or even sectional sofas. One may argue that coffee tables are sufficient, however, once you have had a side table by your side, you would not want to go back!
Armchairs could be a useful addition to your living room space seeing from how sofas typically only allow you to seat 3-4 people. Besides the fact that an armchair could seat one more person, it serves as a form of solace for individuals who avoid close interaction with others, ensuring that all guests are comfortable in your home.
Like the concept of an armchair, an ottoman provides an additional seat. It is a space saving alternative to an armchair. Ottomans can easily be stored away when not utilized, conserving space in the room while providing extra seating when needed.
Rugs are a good way to make your guests feel more cosier and give your house a homier feel to it. Furthermore, it helps to tie the room together. Most people view rugs as somewhat of the finishing touch to a room. Soft to touch and comfortable, rugs provide guests with an additional space for guests to sit on without feeling discomfort. Best of all, it makes cleaning less of a hassle. With a rug, all you would probably need is your trusty vacuum cleaner!
