One of the reasons why the dining room stands out as a special place is because most of the family meetings are carried out in the dining room and the dinner is time for every member of the family to be there. You therefore don't want those embarrassing moments when your guests are present. Off particular interest is the number of seats that your dining has, compared to the size off the family. This is one of the most important things that you should always consider when you are procuring the dining room furniture.
How to use your serenity room? Take an hour per week, or day, or whatever time you decide, and go there. Light the candles. Draw the shades.

2. The living room - if you have hardwood floors, they should not be scratched and should be bright and shinning or if carpeted the carpets should be clean and not worn. The furniture should be the right size for the room and not oversized and should be in great shape and not covered with electrical tape trying to hold it together, do not laugh, I have seen it. The walls should be painted in a light color and windows clean and shinning, the drapes should match the room and have eye appeal. The just read newspaper should not be open and lying on the coffee table. Everything should be in its place. Fresh flowers always look nice.
