How to Make Your Living Room Warm & Cozy for the Holidays

The holidays are fast approaching, which means that snowy nights and cold winter weather are right around the corner. Before your home is filled with family and friends partaking in holiday festivities, make sure that your living room provides a cozy atmosphere to help your guests beat the winter chill. At Jerusalem Furniture, we have a wealth of affordable options that will help you give your living room a holiday upgrade. Learn more about how you can bring warmth to your living room d├ęcor without breaking the bank.  

Add Warmth to Your Color Palette

One of the simplest ways to transform your living room is to change the color palette. When wintertime rolls around, it’s time to put away the bright colors and pastels to make room for warm neutrals and earth tones. Colors like brown, burgundy, and forest green will add visual warmth to the room, making the space appear toasty and snug. Integrating a new color palette doesn’t have to be expensive—all you need are a few carefully selected home accents placed throughout. For example, you can utilize this warm color palette with a few decorative pillows or an area rug.  

Consider a Fireplace Unit

Nothing says the holidays quite like the warm glow of a flickering fire. Adding a fireplace to your living room may seem like a big expense, but believe it or not, we can provide you with options that cost less than $200! We offer a selection of LED fireplace units that provide all the beauty and warmth of a traditional fireplace, but without all the mess and expense.

Purchase Cozy Throws

When nighttime falls, there is nothing better than snuggling up on a couch with a soft and cozy throw. Our throws are a wonderful addition to any living room because they are lightweight and can easily be tucked away in a storage ottoman after use. Our accent throws come in a variety of attractive colors and fabrics that are guaranteed to add comfort and beauty to your room.

Ready to give your living room the holiday transformation it deserves? Come to Jerusalem Furniture today and see all the great selections we have to offer. You can visit us in Pennsauken, NJ or at any one of our four furniture showrooms.

Simple Tips for Furnishing Small Spaces

Everyone deserves the home of their dreams, no matter how big or small their space. Even if you live in a studio or a one-bedroom apartment, with the right home furnishings, you can create a space that is just as stylish and inviting as a larger home. At Jerusalem Furniture, we have a diverse collection of products, with furniture selections suitable for homes of every shape and size. With our quality furniture collection and a few simple tips, you will be able to make a big statement in any size home.
Think Vertically
When furnishing a smaller room, try to build upward, not outward. In other words, look for furniture pieces that are tall and thin, as opposed to short and wide. This rule is particularly useful to apply in your bedroom, where it can often be difficult to find enough space for all your personal belongings. Instead of purchasing a dresser, you can purchase one of our bedroom chests instead. A bedroom chest delivers virtually the same amount of storage as a dresser, but it features a slimmer design. Choosing a bedroom chest over a dresser will help you to conserve some much-needed space.  
Take Furniture Size into Consideration
Even if it is possible to squeeze a large piece of furniture into a room, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should. Always make sure your furniture has room to breathe and that you leave enough space for people to easily walk in and out of the room. Choosing appropriately sized furniture is especially crucial in your dining room, since guests will need room to walk around your table and slide in and out of their chairs. Round dining tables are a great option for smaller dining rooms, as their circular design eliminates wasted space. We even have drop-leaf dining tables that you can close or expand as necessary.
Choose Multipurpose Furniture Pieces
When trying to conserve space, multipurpose furniture is extremely beneficial. Why take up room with two furniture pieces when you can achieve just as much with one? For example, consider one of our living room storage benches or storage ottomans. These versatile furniture pieces provide seating as well as well as discrete storage, helping you to keep your living room neat and tidy.
