Our Living Room Is My Favorite Room In The House! The couches may be stained and drawn on, but my living room is still my favorite room in the house. I absolutely love our living room. It is cozy, clean, and homey.
Our Living Room Is My Favorite Room In The House
We purchased couches around 3 years ago, still, have them and they are COMFORTABLE. Yes, they are a bit soiled, drawn on, and have various stains that I am not sure what caused them, but they are comfy!
Don’t get me wrong, I do clean (and even deep clean!) my couches, but the stains and drawings don’t come out… and I am okay with that!
Of course, that doesn’t stop me from looking for new furniture when I am out with my family! Last weekend, my family and I were out shopping (there were so many sales!) and we saw sofa chairs for sale. I have to admit, I was really liking what I saw, so we window shopped until I saw one I really liked…
Seriously, doesn’t that sofa chair look AMAZING? I am not sure I would ever get up if I owned it, though! And that woman looks like she is not planning on getting up any time soon either… do I blame her? Nope. Looks like this is her Favorite Room In The House too! Yay!
One of my good friends has a leather sectional couch and though they look really nice, they just feel cold to me and not very comfy. I am all about comfort and warmth when it comes down to it. But, leather couches are very pretty sitting in a nice living room and it did look really nice in her home. It fit her and her style. It would stand out like a sore thumb in my home, though!
So, after a long day of window shopping, I realized that I am happy with my old, comfy couches. They look good in my living room, they have my kid’s drawings on them and they smell like us. You can’t get that with a new couch, now can you?!
Moreover, I absolutely adore my living room because of the great amount of light coming into the space. My couches are placed near the big picture windows with a huge glass area that allows for unobstructed, clear views outside.
According to Ecoline Windows, Canadian window installation experts, our living rooms and kitchens are spaces that require the most natural lighting. Adding more sunlight to these rooms will also make the space seem bigger and provide additional vitamin D for better health.
So I definitely recommend you get rid of your old drafty windows and install new energy-efficient units. You will not only boost your property value and make the interior look terrific but also improve your health conditions and overall comfort.

My living room is my favorite place to lounge in our house. If I spend too much time lounging in bed – I fall asleep. The living room is relaxing without inducing a coma!
I am always on my couch. I love it, but I do wish that I had purchased a different set two years ago. It’s holding up well, but I don’t like the neutral color I chose. I wish I’d picked something with more color!
So … anyway, I love lounging in my living room. 😉
With the exception of the stains I love mine as well. Super comfortable. However I am looking forward to the day the kids go off to college and I can buy new furniture. Until then I will live with stains.

We have leather in our living room and agree is it not as comfy as a material couch. My favorite room is my kitchen 🙂
