How many people set up their living room only to find that they are not completely satisfied with the finished look? It is a common issue. Why not make your rooms mobile? This does not mean taking your room out for a walk. Whether it is your bedroom end tables, your living room sofa, or your kitchen island, your living space can reach great potential by thinking outside of the box. This can be accomplished easily if you add wheels, ready your floors, and acquire convertible furniture.

Add Wheels

It may sound odd but adding wheels to your heavier furniture can liven up a room. Think of the changes to your social life if you can move that sofa around to face the fireplace instead of the TV. Do you need space for charades? You have it. Do you want a cozier environment for date-night inside? You have that too. For the really heavy stuff, you may need to buy heavy duty swivel casters. After that though, your room will be ready for any event. As a bonus, this will make moving to a new house a breeze.

Ready Your Floors

With tables and sofas on wheels, you are going to need a floor that can take the changes. A good tile may serve you well, in addition to making clean up easier for the new party life you may have. This goes the same for linoleum. You may wish to go with hardwood, but make sure to get a good sealant so that your beautiful floor does not get scuffed by the movement. Carpet may be used too, but be sure not to get anything too thick. The wheels, even the casters, may snag on the fluffier textures.

Acquire Convertible Furniture

Mobility does not need to rely only on wheels. The true changes in a room can come from transformation. Think of ways that your furniture can be used besides its traditional purpose. Besides that, there are many stores that sell items that collapse, telescope out, or even flatten out to make more room.  This end table can also store pillows or blankets.  The possibilities are endless.

Your living space’s potential is waiting to be maximized. Just take some time to add wheels to your heavy furniture, consider your floor’s feelings through all of this, and either buy or rent furniture that has a couple of faces to wear. In the end, you could thank yourself for preparing a home that can change with the seasons.
