From early times in the United States (United States) until the 1970s, much of the family activity was centered on the living room of a home. Also known as "the reception room", the home makers took the guests as soon as they entered the house. This room contained the best seats and furniture. There the draperies hung neatly around the windows. A small piano could reside in the room. A vase with freshly cut flowers and a bowl filled with nuts or mints can rest on the coffee table. "Eat something while I'm going to get some coffee in the kitchen," says a craftsman to his guests
The lounge area, kept immaculately clean, allowed the housewife to entertain the guests without having to wait. they penetrate far into the home. A house builder could engage comfortably in polite and interesting conversation, and make an impression on the guests in the living room. This place, the most formal room in the house, exalted sophistication and cleanliness, and identified the family as increasing its social status (or not). But housing changed in the United States in the 1970s, when people wanted to express themselves, have more choice, and they cared less about what guests thought of them.
They were more concerned about setting up their home with an imaginative and useful living space. Yet even today, most newly built homes, as well as those built before the 1970s, have living rooms. Still, the family room (where the radio once rested, then the seated television set, and now the widescreen TV mounts on a wall) virtually centers the family and its guests. Entertainment in the digital age, and not just conversation, requires access to digital content (no coat or tie needed or necessary).
Owners began to transform their living room into home offices, a special room with a desk, a computer workstation desk, and online access. Then, the computer workstation has evolved to become the source of computer games and many old living rooms and offices have become online gambling halls. Now neither the computer nor the game requires sequestration in a room. A tablet or laptop allows mobile computing and a smart phone allows online gaming.
Where does this come from in the old living room? Some people place a bar there, with a pool table. For others, it became the guest room (closed with a door to a full bathroom). Pets sometimes have room for themselves, with their bed, their toys, a hundes bar (a dog bar with water and croquettes) and an access door placed at the base from the entrance door. No matter which of these ideas makes more sense than a living room devoid of life, a ghost haunt of bedbugs and dust bunnies. # Tag1writer
