Homeowner Hacks: Bring your Living Room to Life

Wrapping up our weekly #HomeownerHacks for National Homeowners Month, we're heading into the living room for a few helps and hacks that will make your living room come alive this summer:⁣

1. Make furniture do double- or triple-duty. For example, a small ottoman can be extra seating, a personal tabletop, and extra storage all at the same time.⁣

2. Hang them high. Placing curtains high above the windows will give the illusion of higher ceilings. -The change is small but dramatic. Give it a try!⁣

3. Splurge on fresh flowers. It may seem extra, but when you can, snag a bouquet for the living room. Extend their beauty by replacing the water daily. Another trick? Use ice cubes in the vase instead of water. Flowers like the chilly temp.⁣

How do you keep your living room functional and beautiful? Share your top living room tip in the comments.
