Living Room / January 12, 2018 / Leah Venegas
For a house in a cold region, adding a fireplace can significantly enhance the cosiness of the room. One doesn’t have to break down a wall to build it. It’s possible to include it in a partition structure that separates the living room from the dining area. An exposed brick wall can be the perfect backdrop for the fireplace as it will add to the rustic look of the room.
No one said a regular three-seater sofa is a must have for the living room. What you do need is place for your guests to sit comfortably. In a formal living room, replace the sofa with armchairs. For a more informal living room design, you could also throw in beanbags and poufees. A cushioned bench or a daybed will serve you in the same way as a sofa while simultaneously adding a unique touch to your living room. A futon paired with armchairs is another viable alternative to the regular three seater sofa set arrangement. Along with giving our living room a contemporary look, these other pieces of furniture also allows the room to be used as an impromptu guest room to accommodate surprise guests. The picture of this living room above is an example of things can look radically different without the normal sofa set.
