What are some ideas to consider when extending my living room?

Here are some suggestions to consider when extending your living room:


Create more natural light in your living room

Regardless of the trends that are present on the market, increasing the amount of natural light that comes into your home is always a priority. When you decide to maximise the amount of sun that comes into your home, you make your home more inviting and comfortable. The addition of windows and skylights is a great way to increase the value of your property.

Open floor plan

The most popular building trend in the UK and probably around the world, is for the first floor of your home to be open concept. People love combing the kitchen, dining room and living room into one large space. An open plan makes your home feel bigger and you have a lot more freedom to decorate the interior as you see fit, you are not bound by constraints that walls would provide.

You can emphasize the different areas with furniture placements, colours, textures and even different lighting.

Add storage space

When you are planning your home extension and new space, it is important to remember even small details such as storage. If you want to make your home stylish and cosy, avoiding clutter may be the way to go. We suggest to take a little extra time and plan out storage space to make your environment clean and organised.

When it comes to furniture and storage, there are a wide range of options. Some individuals even consider built in furniture that is tailored to their home and can take up less space than your typical organisation systems.


Change up the style or combine different styles

When building your home extension, you may decide it is time to completely change the style of your home or perhaps combine and contrast different styles in one floor plan. Combing and contrasting different colours, styles and trends is a popular option among homeowners. For example you can mix looks from different decades such as the 50s and 60s.

However, it is important to not go overboard, generally you want to pick two distinct styles and stick with that. The old saying ‘less is more’ is absolutely true here. Also, regardless of the styles or eras that you pick to be inspired by, make sure that there are some factors that bring them together. A common factor that can bring the entire thing together is an accent colour or a specific texture.

Another way to change styles is by starting with a clean slate. You can design and decorate your interior only using neutral colours and simple materials for essential furniture such as the sofa. Then for certain pieces such as lighting or rugs you can choose textures that very distinct, or perhaps incorporating different shades to make your interior more comfortable. The choices when it comes to styling your interior are endless.
