When designing your living room, it is essential that you are aware of the functions of the living room space. Living rooms are usually multifunctional areas in any house: spaces in which you may want to read and relax, entertain family and friends, watch TV, play games or dine. In designing a great multifunctional space, you should not lose sight of the importance of style and atmosphere in the room you are creating. The choices you select with regards to colour, textures, fittings and fixtures and floor coverings, should all speak to the overall sense of harmony, balance and atmosphere which you are trying to create in the room.
Fireplaces: Fireplaces make great character features or focal points in any room. An ugly fireplace or one that is out of character with the rest of the space, can ruin the…
Staircases: Staircase designs in double story or multistory homes can be a stylish focal point in any room, or an unsightly eyesore. In older homes many staircases are made from cast concrete and can be large and cumbersome objects which not only occupy a large volume of unnecessary space, but also block views and interrupt the flow of the house. Removing such staircases can be a timely, messy and costly job, but it is almost always worth the effort. A well designed staircase will not only work with the rest of the room's design style but should be functional, be mindful of space constraints and room height, and be a stunning design feature. If you have small children or animals in your home, an open stepped stairs, glass or flimsy railing options although being stylish, may not be a functional choice for Staircases.

Dining Areas: Gone are the days when all homes had to have a separate formal dining room. Modern homes may have several dining areas including kitchen diners, bar seating around the kitchen island or outdoor patio dining. You can choose from many formal, casual or eclectic dining room styles to create any mood around your table to eat with family or entertain friends. When designing your room, you need to take into consideration the style of chairs and table, fabrics used as chair seating or table cloths, and of course lighting, in order to create just the right ambiance for your dining experience. A multipurpose dining area that this also used, for example, as a table on which your kids do their homework needs extra careful thought regarding their functionality and form.
