It is not necessary to put all of the furniture in one direction. A conversation area using a few chairs is a great idea for a different area of your living room. You can catch up with an old friend over a cup of tea in comfort.Use warm flooring in the bedroom. A cold floor can be a nasty shock first thing in the morning. Be sure to use something like carpet or wood flooring in the bedroom. Avoid ceramic, marble, or any other cool surfaces. If warm flooring isn’t an option, put a rug down under or near the bed.When selecting paint don’t forget to go green. Make sure you look for low VOC paint. VOC’s are the cause of that harsh “new paint” smell that many find offensive. The US Green Building Council recommends no more than 50 VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). VOC’s are emitted as gases from certain liquids such as some paints. These gases include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects.
