Looking for open-plan living room ideas? Open-plan living has slowly become part of our everyday lives, from a home office within a living room to a kitchen-diner. These spaces should be well designed and able to utilise the best of the overall room in their function. Clever decorating and styling ideas will keep the spaces looking separate but seamless. Sounds complicated? Well fear not as we have compiled our top five tips for making the most of your open-plan space, without breaking the bank. You’ll be the envy of your friends and family.
Happy, cheerful colors evoke a fun, kid-friendly atmosphere. In her own home, designer and mom Alison Kandler paired a navy sofa with wicker furniture and a distressed coffee table, but the brightly striped area rug and candy-colored pink and floral pillows help tie all the hues together. The family space serves multiple functions: a place for kids to create art and play, a home office and a spot to relax as a family.
Optimise your open-plan living room by designing it to flow seamlessly out to an adjacent outdoor space. Consider wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling patio doors – they will extend your room and optimise light. Make the transition from inside to out seamless by colour-matching internal flooring with external decking. Choose a decorating palette that complements the garden and position all your furniture to take in the views so it’s easy to supervise little ones when they are outside.
Bring a personal touch to your living room with pillows showcasing your child 's artwork. Here, the homeowners scanned the artwork, uploaded it to a digital printing company, then had their little one 's masterpiece printed onto canvas and stitched into pillows. Check out online sites, like Shutterfly, to create your own photo-based decor.
