Division of the living room space

The main division of the space is achieved by appropriate arrangement of the furniture, the layout of which should clearly distinguish the planned functional zones. To achieve this goal, you can try to arrange some furniture in the center of the room (e.g.. low cabinet, dresser, the couch, armchairs etc.) "Closing" them with conventionally separated corners – leisure, edible etc.. Other items, thanks to which the impression of dividing the space is obtained: openwork walls (m.in. shelves, various types of screens, screens), color, lighting and the type of materials used to finish the walls – m.in. wallpapers, paneling and floor finishes – m.in. carpets, as well as ornamental plants. The whole puzzle seems to be easy on the surface. The underlying problem, purpose, what should be set when furnishing a living room is, as mentioned in the introduction, getting as much free space as possible, in other words, "air" and order. Hence the first rule – not to clutter the room. First of all, large-sized appliances should be avoided (taking into account the height of the furniture), such as wardrobes, solid shelving sets, heavy sofas, spacious armchairs, high tables and chairs, or at least a list of all the furniture listed in one room, maintain the correct width of aisle between pieces of furniture, provide access to shelves and racks and leave enough space in front of the opening furniture. Of course, it is a matter of exposing one of the corners or eliminating one of them in order to enlarge the space of the other – it depends on the preferences and habits prevailing in a given house. E.g, if guests are often invited to parties in the form of sumptuous dinners at the common table, representative dining room with a high dining table, a handy sideboard and comfortable chairs will not only decorate the "living room", but also a necessity, despite having a large kitchen with a dining corner for household members.
