If the PC was still available on a small desk in family homes just a few months ago, it has already given way to laptops, tablets and smartphones in many apartments, which no longer need a fixed station. But this is not the only change!
What is aligned?
Remarkable is that the living rooms of singles, couples and families differ in part significantly. The average values tend to coincide more with the family rooms, while singles are more individualistic. The typical US living room has a couch or seating corner, which is at least one other seating furniture, such as an armchair. In the center stands a table, which is still rather massive in older dwellings and in new dwellings mostly of glass. In single apartments, the seats partly deviate strongly from the standard.
Entertainment has priority
Alone cineasts orient their relaxing sofas and earcups mostly unobtrusively in the direction of the TV. And this is not enough: A simple TV is not enough for the home cinema for a long time!If a sufficiently large, white wall or a canvas available, it must now actually an HD projector to be or you have multiple monitors. Many still have their tube televisions to view low-resolution images such as normal DV-Pal TVs or DVDs, although for the picture in better quality, of course, a modern LED TV must not be missing. Even less common is the 3D device, as most buyers consider the technology to be too untrained. The work area in the living room is also increasingly rare, unless there is not a separate working space - the price per square meter not take currently precisely from. In this case, the room size decides whether the work area will enter the bedroom or living room.
Holz definitely celebrates his big comeback in the US living room. Once, this material was a bit frowned upon, as many of the wardrobe walls of the 80s and 90s seemed quite pliable, and there was usually also room for completely tasteless "nipples", which most of us still know through the parents or grandparents. Once again, Asian-inspired wood elements and decorative parts are back in fashion. But the good old bookshelf is again more frequently seen in the living rooms, as the appearance of a library on the one hand suggests cosiness and, on the other hand, intelligence - regardless of the actual readiness of the resident.
