    You're midway through an epic Kimmy Schmidt binge session on the TV. Then your roommate announces she's heading to bed. In your approximately 300-square-foot apartment, that's code for, "Time to turn off the TV." Ugh.

    Sharing a living room with roommates can be tricky at times. Whether one of you wants to nap or two of you are dueling over what to play on the big screen, the drama is not always limited to what's happening on the tube.

    There are some tools that can help, though. Simply switching up some Netflix settings or buying a new streaming device can make sharing a TV among roommates a piece of cake. Ahead, all of the tips you need to make the living room more friendly and less complicated.
