Designing an open floor plan can be a great way to make your living areas seem more spacious. Without walls to visually divide the space the entire area will seem larger. Even when the square footage is exactly the same most people will perceive a room with an open floor plan to be larger than a divided space. Depending on the current layout of your living area transitioning to an open floor plan can sometimes require major construction or wall removal. In both of these cases it is best to consult with a building expert to avoid potential problems. However there are also a number of decorating tricks you can use to create the illusion of an open plan living area. If youd like to give your living area a more spacious look here are some tips you can use as inspiration.
There might not be anything really special about your living room this is why its really important to create a focal point. While that sounds like a fancy designer term it is something that everyone can do. You need to add height to at least one piece in your room to get a dramatic look. You can do this by building up your fireplace mantel so the stone goes from floor to ceiling or just hang your curtains higher. The focal point should be the place where you want everyone to gather around and be impressed it shouldnt just be your TV.
Start with the room you plan to use as your home theater. If its your multi-purpose living room think about mounting a flat-panel LCD HDTV on the wall and finding one of the many artistic solutions for hiding the screen when its not in use. Make sure the furniture that houses your audio/video components has a cable management system to hide power cords and sufficient ventilation. Rear wheels on the cabinet make accessing your connections much easier!
Second on the list in popularity are tab top curtains. With this type of curtain, the material loops over the curtain rod and then drapes all the way to the floor. This option provides a casual atmosphere.
