new home build ideas
We at Phantom Screens often find that large living rooms can be made even more spacious by making use of the outdoor spaces - by opening French doors or installing bi-folding door systems, it is possible to create a living area that blends interior with the exterior. We have worked on several projects where designers and architects have specified motorized retractable screens and thereby created outdoor rooms that blend with the rest of the house and continue the selected theme and style of the home.
Rugs are perfect for defining areas — a large living room may need a few zones to make it work efficiently. Taking a color from one rug and linking it to another, like in this room, will also help. Using bold colors in your rugs means you can keep the more expensive key pieces neutral. You can match color in your cushions and lamp shades. Tip: If you have the room, lay your rugs opposite ways; this will instantly imply different uses within the room.
Make a list. To get an idea of what you already have, make a list of everything in your living room: furniture, rugs, lights, curtains — even accessories. What pieces do you love? What pieces should be tossed? Do you have any other pieces that you'd like to integrate into your living room? Maybe you have an inherited table or chair that would look perfect in your living room after you redo the layout. This also could be the right time to replace a few worn-out pieces or order new window coverings.
The sofa placement in this space provides a visual break from the kitchen. Two chairs side by side in front of the French doors provide additional seating but don’t block the view. The two smaller stools placed in front of the fireplace provide more places to sit but do not crowd the main seating area or block the view to the fireplace.
Something to consider....arranging furniture to take advantage of the view to the West. Then with a separate area for TV viewing. Start on a furniture floor plan by considering the various angles of the room. This gorgeous space in an open-concept setting takes advantage of the view with two floated sofas that create a version of a sectional focused toward the outdoors.
