It’s been a little while *coughs* since I blogged and I have decided to give it another try.
When I started this blog I was really excited and I think I wanted to blog too much. I spend way too many lindens on new items than I could afford, so you can imagine the excitement disappeared quickly. Now I decided to start blogging again, but I’m changing the subject. First it was mostly about new clothes, new houses.. well everything new. Now I want to focus on what I love best in SL: my family. I love spending time with them, going on outings and decorating our home. I want this blog to be a source for other families to find fun things to do and items to add to their RP experience.
In this first new blog I want to introduce you to LAQ Decor furniture. I know it’s old news and a lot of people have their items already, but I am sure that a lot of you are not familiar with it yet. The best thing about LAQ furniture in my opinion is that it’s mesh and very low prim. When you have kids in SL, you use a lot of prims. Our household uses 855 prims at the moment (the house is excluded from this count) and I only have two kids! I don’t know how people with more kids do it to be honest.
If you’re a bit like me, you don’t use your bedroom that often. I am a single parent and I don’t have a clue what to do with my bed to be honest. Maybe once in a while it is used for RP when a child has had a bad dream.. but other than that… I only use my bedroom for changing clothes and that’s why I want to keep it low on land impact.
The LAQ bed is only 13 LI when you also rezz the nightstands like I did. You can fully customize the color of the wood, sheets and pillows. It has so many options that I guarantee you that it fits your bedroom as well.
There are more than enough poses in it for my taste. The thing I love most about the poses is that the sheet covers you when you sleep. There are some cuddles and kissing poses as well. So if you’re a couple and you’re looking for a nice PG bed with some extras, check it out!
The other LAQ items our house can’t do without, are the bathroom items and the dining table. The dining table is great for RP, since you can rezz decoration, dinners and coffee. The total set is only 5 LI and the animations are well done. I’ve been looking around many times for an affordable dinner table that is good for RP and I finally found it. Most tables that let you rezz food are very primmy and cost a fortune.
The tables that were to my taste usually didn’t have the animations in the seating for eating and drinking. This table set has that all. It comes in 7 colors and the table cloth has a texture menu. The table also gives out items like a cup of coffee and utensils. This table might not fit very modern homes, but it does fit any other style.
So last, but certainly not least: the bathroom items. When you don’t have a family, you probably don’t need or own a bathroom in your house because these rooms take up space you’d rather use for something else.
Let me tell you that the total of our LAQ bathroom is 11 LI. 11 LI! I never thought I would find a cozy bathroom that takes up so little space. You can even lower the LI count on that by taking away the decoration. But since it’s so low on LI already, it’s a shame to take this away.
As you can see in the picture, the decorations are real cute and give your bathroom the cozy feel you want. In this bathroom you can really relax. As usual, the items all come in different colors and have great animations. On the sink, you can turn the water on and off, wash your hands, brush your teeth and brush your hair. Or if needed, you can give yourself a good look in the mirror.
The bath has a curtain option (shown in the background) that is texture change. The bath seats one or two persons and you can also rezz a shower. The animations are mostly to bath and wash yourself, but there is also a hug and a kiss. Just like the bed, this bath is very PG and great to have in your family bathroom.
So in short (finally!): LAQ Decor has great mesh furniture that includes great animations for your family RP and has very low land impact. All items come in different colors and most have texture change options. The items are all copy/mod so you could even add your own scripts to it.
