Section off the living area of an open-plan space with careful placement of furniture. The benefit of a large, open-plan space is that everyone can spend time together without being on top of each other. Not only that, but as there’s direct access to the garden, children can happily head outside to get some fresh air. Aside from its spacious layout, this room’s winning features are the dramatic walls and beautiful fireplace, which contrast perfectly.
Make the most of the space you have. Here, designer Claire Paquin incorporates a mudroom in this open living room. Keep the space tidy with hooks for coats, baskets for out-of-sight storage and shelves for shoes.
Having enough storage is essential for a mess-free living room. Built-ins on either side of the fireplace offer both open and closed options. The bookcase shelves make for easy organization of books, while toys and smaller items can be stowed in baskets. Cabinets with doors offer hidden storage for things like DVDs and kid ' art supplies.
If a piece of furniture, like a coffee or end table, has seen better days, transform it with a fresh coat of paint or stain. A high-gloss paint treatment is a great choice for a contemporary space, or try a distressed treatment, like the one designer Joanna Gaines used in this cottage-style living room.
