Did you know that people in the United States spend an average of 2 hours each day sitting on the couch? 

Since the beginning of the pandemic, more people are spending time at home with their families.

If you want to enjoy your time on the couch and with your family, you should consider updating the furniture. 

Keep reading to learn about the different types of furniture that can liven up your living room and keep you comfortable! 

1. Bookshelves

One of the best types of furniture for the living room is bookshelves.

Bookshelves can be built into the walls, which look unique and will impress guests. It might even inspire your kids to pick up a book! 

This is a great way to improve your living room with furniture, and you can make a larger statement with a bookshelf than you can with a chair. 

2. Leather Couches

If you want to spruce up your living room with new furniture, but you have dogs, you should consider leather couches. 

You can find leather Sofas in a variety of colors so that they match your living room decor. This is the best home furniture to get when you have pets because their hair or fur doesn’t stick to the leather. This is also a popular choice since it is easy to clean and care for. 

Keep in mind, a faux leather couch won’t be able to handle dog and cat nails as well. 

3. Storage Coffee Table

Do you have blankets, kid’s toys, or other items in the living room that don’t have a storage spot?

Many companies make coffee tables that open on the inside and can be used for storage. A lot of these tables have shelves or cabinets to store your items. Certain table styles will allow you to lift the top (to bring it closer) so that you can adjust the table height while holding blankets. 

This type of furniture is practical and can be found in stylish designs that will fit your decor. 

4. Modern Recliner Chairs

When people think of recliner chairs, they often imagine a chunky chair that looks comfortable, but tacky.

Although these chairs are extremely comfortable, they can disrupt the design of the living room. If you want to ensure comfort and a good image, you should consider getting modern recliner chairs.

Modern recliner chairs are still comfortable, however, they aren’t as bulky as the Lazy Boy option. These are the perfect piece of furniture for the living room because you can watch movies in them, rock your child to sleep, or read a book. 

Try These Types of Furniture 

Some of the most common types of furniture bought this year are practical and look great. 

Furniture can serve a much larger purpose than to be just sat on or for storage. Getting storage tables and bookshelves can change the appearance of the room and organize your belongings. 

Don’t forget to think about your kids and pets when picking the best furniture for your home.
