Incorporating an easily moveable side table or ottoman into the family room design makes the room feel flexible and more relaxed, not to mention distinctly functional. A small-scale piece like this also can double as an impromptu card table when a cutthroat game of card War breaks out.
Frame your fireplace with a set of built-in shelves. This is a great way to create a feature wall in a living room. Feature walls look best when they are symmetrical, so make your shelving units equal in size. In the living room design above, we used open shelves. You can also add doors to cover the lower portion for closed storage. Add a pair of sconces and a mirror or painting above the fireplace to complete the look.
Does your living room have an awkward set back or quirky corner that’s tough to furnish? Turn it into an asset by adding a built-in desk to create functional and attractive home office space. A built-in desk does not have to be complicated, expensive or even require a contractor to install it. You can make one desk yourself like the one above with a few basic items – a desktop, a few wall shelves and a drawer unit.
A glass coffee table has the potential of making the room look less cluttered. In addition, if the table has a glass top this allows its base to stand out and to feature sculptural and eye-catching designs. As you can see, the coffee table takes center stage in this case, everything else being organized around it. You can use multiple strategies to make a living room feel welcoming and comfortable. For example, combine a textured rug with a wood coffee table, a fabric sofa or sectional with lots of cozy pillows and a few personal decorations framed on the wall behind it.
