Serving as both a private and a social space, decorating the living, dining, and kitchen area can is a big deal. These three large rooms are the ones most commonly merged to define an open-living plan. These rooms are key to create a welcoming space of any dwelling, both for the home dwellers as well as the visitors.
Use a continuous decor throughout
The open living plan has one major advantage; it makes the area feel more spacey. Use a unified colour for wall paint. Both furnitures and wall paint ideally would compliment each other. This would double the effect of enlarging that the open living plan possess. That does not mean that you need to use the exact same furnitures or the exact same shade for everything. You can simply unify the style of the entirety of the unified room as well as several key features you can define throughout the space.
Kitchen as a focal point
The kitchen used to be a place that is hidden far from view of the visitors. However it isn’t the case anymore. Kitchen is a great space to be made a focal point of the LDK (living, dining, kitchen) area. There are numerous ways to make the kitchen a catchy, pleasing visual of the room area. Using overhang lamps is one of the popular ways of drawing the eyes to the kitchen. Make clever use of lighting to create moods. Installing large countertops is an implicit way to invite people over to sit down and hang out in the area. Couple it with barstools and you’ll have a fashionable space perfect for entertaining.
Use a creative room divider
Multipurpose divider that could double as a storage space is an excellent option, unless you prefer those that are purely decorative. Display your items in an open-cabinet without any closed shelves. It’s an excellent way to display your collections as well. You can even put everyday items that you use frequently. Books, ashtray, wine, bowls—virtually anything can be on display, as long as you coordinate it tastefully. You can install your divider in the living room area to differentiate the space from the dining or kitchen area.
Bold artwork and installation
Putting up artwork that take up a whole vertical line of the space is going to draw the eyes up, putting more emphasis on the room’s height. You can also put up several large artworks on rectangular canvas of the same size that make up a series or an entirety of the work, making your wall one of the features of your room.
If you prefer them, you can also use plants creatively as a room divider. Potted bamboo as a room divider is a popular option for this. Bamboo is very low-maintenance and does not need a lot of watering, making it a good option for an indoor plant. If you prefer a large potted plant, then making it as a focal point of your living room altogether is a good idea that would bring a fresh perspective to your room.
