In a large open-plan space you also have the freedom to experiment with oversized designs, everything from statement furniture, wall art or a bold, large-scale design on soft furnishing fabrics or an eye-catching rug. Create zones for different activites so that an open-plan space works well. Furniture can be used to cleverly break up an area with pieces such as storage cabinets being used as a room divider.
A good starting point is to think about how many people you need to fit in your living room on a regular basis. This will help you to choose the right living room furniture. A large family will need a sizeable sofa and a couple of armchairs at least to make sure everyone has somewhere comfortable to sit. If space is tight, beanbags and poufs are a smart way to sneak in extra seating, and can be stowed away easily at times when there are fewer people in the house.
Go for a smart piece of furniture that has a mix of open shelving and concealed storage space so that you can view the television and display books and a few favourite accessories. Stow away more day-to-day items in drawers and cupboard space. Choose from design-led floor-to-ceiling furniture or sleek modern sideboards. A modular, L-shaped sofa and stylish armchairs can be arranged to create a living area for relaxing and family gatherings. Add a rug and table or standard lamps for a snug look.
How to light your living room. Living rooms are multifunctional spaces, so they need lighting for all the different tasks they need to perform. First, you’ll need a general light source – a ceiling pendant light, for example – that will light the room at darker times of day when the household are milling about. Wall lights and table lamps will give a softer glow when it’s time to relax. An adjustable reading lamp next to a comfy chair will allow readers to focus on their book without dazzling the rest of the room.
