Dividing the room into exceptional use areas is a excellent way to break up the space. Obviously a hearth is a outstanding focal point. Keep seating in front of it perpendicular (i.E. Sofas facing each other with ottoman or espresso desk in between) or L-shaped. Don’t forget about to place a small desk at each quit of the couch/love seat with desk lamps and area for a drink and a book.
Next, create a gaming place either for board video games or cards. A rectangular or round table with 2 – 4 chairs and a pendant light/chandelier is all you need. Add a ground lamp close by for greater ambient lighting. If not for games, how about including a bistro set for light eating or morning coffee?
I might take benefit of home windows and their light by constructing or improvising a window seat. Use a massive bench or settee or maybe a loveseat right underneath the window. Add a protracted cushion (you may even recover a frame pillow!) and some coordinating throw pillows, and your reading spot is ready! Keep an quit desk and lamp nearby for additional analyzing pleasure.
Fill in the corners with a screen and/or tall plants (can be silk). Don’t forget about to uplight them with canister lighting fixtures for dramatic effect. You may actually have room for a writing table and small bill-paying center. Use your imagination, study designing magazines and go for it! You’ll be glad you did.
