How to: Make the most of your living room space

Space saving ideas for your living room

Dual purpose coffee table

Ottomans and storage tables function as extra space, and can be filled to the brim with goodies such as DVDs, books, and anything else you want to hide but also have quick access to.

Extendable dining table

If you have a small family, but want to be able to have guests for dinner, a dining set with an extendable table is ideal. The Ingatorp Extendable Dining Table by IKEA in black or white can seat 6 people when adjusted. Matching chairs are available.

Instead of using table or floor lamps which can take up much needed space, try wall lights to bring soft illumination. Mirrors are also a great way to add light to your living room.

Find some quirky shelving to house decorative items. These innovative Hexagon Mirror Shelves from Not On The High Street are classy, practical, and double up as mirrors.

 

Low seating

Low-level sofas and armchairs give an illusion of more space and higher ceilings. They’re also unusual and will make your guests feel cosy. Try a corner sofa for extra comfort points.

 

Collage photos

Rather than spacing out family photos across a wall, group them together in a collage multi aperture frame, or opt for a photo album, like this French Style Wooden Photo Box from Amazon.

The Unusual: Bathrooms

While a lot of people like to keep it safe when it comes to bathrooms, many want to make it unique with a ‘wow’ factor. We’re not talking about creating an underwater scene, or something from the future, just thinking outside the box.Duke-Blue-1695-Double-Ended-Roll-Top-Bath-Ball-and-Claw-Legs-p

Traditional Freestanding Bathtubs

Now, even though these aren’t new to us, when you step into a bathroom with a regal looking roll top tub, you can’t help but admire it. Not all are claw-footed, but this option will definitely add some interest. If you’re really looking to push the boat out, why not add a pop of colour? And, if you’re more of a shower person, you can opt for one like the Appleby 1700 Roll Top Shower Bath with Screen by Victorian Plumbing.

Victorian-Style Accessories

Along the same line as the roll top bath, copper in bathrooms is both stylish and romantic, and all-too rare, we think. Whether it’s radiators, taps, showers, or even bathtubs, rose gold will transform your bathroom into a relaxing retreat, and goes with virtually any colour scheme. These beauties can be found at Heritage Bathrooms.

A Guest bedroom Design

guest-bed-room-design_boutique-spa_boutique-hotel_luxury-room-design_london-interior-designerImagine walking into a room and immediately you feel as though you are in another world. The lighting becomes dim; highlighting only, the special visual features. Your eyes are drawn to a waterfall bath tub with ripples on the front imitating the movement of water and inviting you to touch. the clean white basin stands tall among the gravel imitating the geometry of the bath. You think you are in a jungle because the plants makes the wall. There is a scent of essential oils that soothes the notes, and the sweet sounds of birds chirping away. Pure bliss!
