Everyone urges to own a space that’s larger in size, but when it comes to designing the space, most of the space end up looking way too cold due to lack of planning. Hence, it is important to realize and understand that bringing in the best of furniture into a large space is not just enough to create a mind-boggling space.
So if you are among those homeowners owning a larger home and on a hunt to find out ways to turn a large room into a cozy nest, then you have bumped into the right post.
CREATE A SECOND SEATING AREA
In a large living room, even after filling out a main seating arrangement, there will likely be an odd corner that remains unfilled. If you put as much effort into this corner as into the “main” seating area, it may well become your favorite hangout spot.
USE THE L-SHAPED SECTIONAL AS A ROOM DIVIDER
Another great place for your L-shaped sofa is between two seating areas or dividing the living and dining spaces in an open-plan space.
SWAP THE COFFEE TABLE FOR AN OVERSIZE OTTOMAN
Large seating arrangements can feel a bit empty if there is too much distance between the sofa and coffee table. Choosing a big upholstered ottoman instead of a traditional coffee table will close that gap and add softness at the same time.
Zone out the areas within the room as per personal requirement to turn the room into something functional, such as a conversation zone, a reading area with a writing desk, a console table, a dining area and so on.
DEFINE ZONE WITH CONSOLE TABLE
Another option for sectioning off parts of a large living room is floating your sofa in the middle of the room and placing a console table behind it.
Split level means a space with multiple floor levels! Those who own a large living room can incorporate this concept into the living room design to bind the space together.
FILL THE DEAD WALL SPACE
In a large space, it is nearly always best to pull furniture off the walls, creating cozy arrangements closer to the center of the space. The trouble is, this can leave a great deal of wall space bare. Don’t let it go to waste!
PLACE TALL POTTED PLANTS
Fill vertical height in rooms with tall ceilings or fill bare, lonely corners with potted trees. As long as your space gets enough light to support the plant’s needs, you really can’t go wrong with adding a massive houseplant.
PAINT TWO-TONE WALLS
Painting color on your walls only part of the way up creates a cozier feeling; tricking the eye into thinking the ceilings are lower than they are.
CREATE A FOCAL POINT
Having a focal point in the space is important as it’s that part of the room that grasps the attention of the onlookers instantly. Moreover in large spaces, creating a focal point would help in teaming accessories and furniture together in a more meaningful manner.
Whether you live in a loft, have a living room with extremely high ceilings or simply have a lot of space to fill, these ideas can help you make your room feel balanced and comfortable.
