How to arrange a living room?
A living room is usually the most representative room in the house. It is here that we spend a lot of time alone and with the family, here we also invite our guests. No wonder that we want the salon to reflect our tastes, tastes and individuality as well as possible. Devising it can be a big challenge, especially in the absence of previous experience with interior design and a stylistically coherent vision.
What arrangement of the living room will allow you to fully enjoy the time spent in it? Which elements will express the character of the house and its inhabitants? Here are some general guidelines that may guide you to your own dream vision.
The first step to success is a coherent vision. Think about which rooms you've always liked - spacious, with little equipment or, on the contrary, colourful, cosy and filled with objects? At this stage, the arrangement of the living room is only a collection of inspirations. Numerous websites and interior design magazines will help.
Don't be afraid to play with connections. Arrangement of the living room is not only boring beige and brown with an obligatory relaxation set and a coffee table. If you love oriental climates and vibrant, beautiful colors, don't be afraid to replace this routine with something completely new.
When places are for a cure
A separate challenge is the arrangement of a living room with a bedroom. Such projects are usually carried out in small flats, for example in studios, where it is not possible to find a separate bedroom. Such a combined space is a much greater challenge for the designer, because it must simultaneously perform the function of a day zone and "night", intimate. As usual, such a conflict of interest is resolved?
Tricks separating space
If the area is small and we want the bedroom and living room to be somehow separated, it is worth thinking about openwork steaming. A partition wall in a small room will not perform its function well - it will only create a claustrophobic effect. The space is also well divided by low furniture (e.g. a bedside table at the corner of the bed), garlands on the ceiling or plants in pots.
Two in one
It is also very popular to buy a sofa, which when unfolded serves as a bed. Of course, this is a way that does not fully satisfy the need to separate bedroom and living room. However, the arrangement of a living room in a block of flats, especially in a small flat, requires flexibility. During the day, such space serves as a living room where you work, receive guests or watch TV, and in the evening, when you turn on the curtains, dim the light and pull out the bed linen, it also takes over the function of the bedroom. Light works well in such a case - it is worth making sure that in the evening it is possible to light a few small lamps instead of a large chandelier.
