If you’re decorating a sunken living room, a built-in couch may best complement the space’s architectural features. Construct it along the edge to enhance the layered effect of the flooring’s different tiers.
Built-in couches are great for sneaking in seating in a streamlined fashion. By carving out a little niche in the built-in cabinetry, this area now benefits from an extra space to sit for a chat.
Here is another clever, streamlined built-in couch design. By taking advantage of this space, the room can now seat three extra people comfortably. This is a great option for smaller spaces that may feel tight with too many freestanding furnishings.
If you want to keep the budget down on this project, design a simplistic base for your couch. All you truly need to make it work are seat and back cushions, and perhaps a few throw pillows.
Don’t forget the extra storage that built-in couches can provide. This makes them optimal for areas that come with lots of excess stuff, like the playroom.
