Join Christopher Matthew Spencer for an in-depth discussion in this video Living room tips, part of Making Money with VRBO.
- The core of every living room, is comfortable seating.…For each bedroom in the accommodation,…you'll need two seating spaces in the living room.…A studio apartment can have comfortable chairs.…Chairs that you can tuck away in the closet…are even better because of the limited space.…In a one-bedroom, you'll want a love-seat or sofa…that seats at least two.…A two bedroom requires a sofa for four people,…and you can keep scaling this up…as you increase the number of beds.…You can mix a sofa and some individual recliners,…or go with a combination of comfortable chairs and a sofa,…depending on your budget.…
Moving furniture is a bear, so order in-home delivery,…and you'll thanks me, and you'll save your back as well.…I don't recommend fabric.…I prefer leather, bonded leather, or high quality vinyl.…Spills will happen,…and it's easier to clean surfaces that don't absorb liquids.…Always pick comfort over aesthetics.…If you can have comfort and aesthetics,…for an affordable price, then you're in an ideal situation.…
