Choose this direction, most often, people are extraordinary, creative, loving an unconventional approach to solving problems.

But in order to make the living room environment not reminiscent of the warehouse, it is necessary to take into account several nuances.

Mixing Styles

Zoning Space

To create the space of the main room, which will be functional and convenient for everyone living, experienced designers apply zoning. Its use is equally productive for large, spacious living rooms, and for small rooms. In the first case, this method provides coziness, in the second, maximum functionality.

When the layout is spacious, the design of the living room is designed taking into account that everyone who enters there can find a secluded corner with the greatest comfort. If the area is small, the rational use of its square meters helps, more productively interpreting the space, create a design in it, the most convenient for the household.

Zoning options

Qualitatively designed interior, most often, occurs when the following zoning variations are used:

  • With kitchen. Which part should be more compact depends on the desire of the household. But, to cook food was more convenient, the kitchen area is placed closer to the window.
  • With a dining room. Equivalent zones. Their placement depends solely on the taste preferences of the owners. But each of them needs enough space for arrangement.

Living room with bedroom

  • Sleeper in the hall. The variant most often used in the design of a small apartment. It is customary to place the bedroom on the opposite side of the room.
  • Children's area in the interior of the living room. This concept of design involves a thorough analysis of exactly where the toys and things of the children should be built up. And still need to provide the younger generation with convenient conditions for both games and classes, and for recreation. In addition, if the children are small, it is very important that the zone is clearly visible.
  • With the office. The square is given to him a small one, because a table and a working chair do not occupy much space. But it is very important that this is where the window was located.
  • With the library. Here, as in the previous case, it is very important to have lighting sources. And racks or bookcases can become splendid dividers.

Hall with a dining room

Basic techniques

Zoning of the central premises of the house is carried out with the help of various dividers. Most often, the choice of reception depends on the size of the room, the features of the shared zones, as well as the physical availability of the necessary elements. Experienced designers distinguish several groups of dividers. Let's consider each of them in more detail.

Zoning with different finishes

Walls and partitions

The separating elements of this group are stationary and are used, often, in large areas. They well zoned space, they allow you to design a living room design more vividly, in an original way. And easily they can become original "highlight" of the interior. Especially if you build an aquarium or a color screen there.

Glass partition

If to speak about minuses, then these dividers burden the space, and also greatly reduce it visually. In addition, they hide the natural lighting in varying degrees, and also require significant budgetary allocations.

The use of such a zoning space is most appropriate if necessary to separate the rest area, cabinet or bed.

Sliding doors

Screen, curtains or blinds

This group of separators is a special case of the previous one. To the positive moments of its use can be attributed the possibility of disposing only when it is necessary. Depending on the situation, such designs may or may not be an obstacle to natural light and easily transform space.


This is an excellent budget option when the task is to separate a sleeping place or a children's corner. In addition, it is not bad to use it to hide from the prying eyes the kitchen area or make the rest zone more comfortable. The design of such dividers can easily be selected in the same style as the rest of the textiles or accessories in the room.

Separation table

Floors and ceilings

Multilevel floor and ceiling structures, various patterns and decoration of the ceiling or floor, too, can be perfectly used in zoning. Perfectly serve this purpose, various materials, colors and textures. The transition between zones occurs smoothly and is carried out only visually, since there are no physical barriers here.

Gray mat

This zoning does not interfere with the penetration of sunlight at all. In addition, it allows space to remain open and easy. This method can be used to highlight the kitchen, dining area or bed. But in the latter case, it is good only in families with open, trusting relationships.

Zoning with carpets, allocation of zones

Different finishes

Another visual divider is the different options for finishing different zones of the same room. And you can play here as on the contrast of the upper part with the bottom, and on a brighter allocation of a certain area. In addition, an important factor is the sources of artificial and natural lighting.

Glass partition

This zoning, of course, will not allow you to get your own private nook. But it expands the general boundaries visually, so it is best suited for rooms with a small quadrature. This way, you can select a children's corner, study or library, and also emphasize the zone of food intake.

Furniture constructions

This group of separators is effective for any zoning variations. Their use helps to easily create in the living room secluded islands. Separation elements here can act as the furniture structures themselves, and the space between them. So, the most budgetary is the arrangement of furniture from different zones "back" to each other. For example, separating the dining area.

Tulle and rack, like a partition

If you use high cabinets, shelves or niches, with their help you can separate the working area, for example, a library, study or a children's corner. Niches of medium height (bar counter) perfectly divide the kitchen area with a seating area. And the furniture elements here will be actively used and for their intended purpose.

Zoning design project

  • Before embarking on the zoning of space, it is necessary in the interior of the living room to identify the semantic center - the point of contact of interests of all members of the family.
  • It is highly undesirable to embody more than three zones in the living room. This is fraught with a heap of various furniture and decorative elements.
  • Using zoning techniques, one should not forget that one of the key roles here belongs to the world. Therefore, it is desirable that each of the zones has its own, inherent only to it, the source of illumination.
  • Space dividers require a wide living room space.
  • Multi-storey floor or ceiling structures can be used exclusively for interiors of living rooms with high ceilings.
  • When you arrange furniture elements with your backs to each other, the distance between them should be at least one meter.

Secrets of correct lighting

  • when choosing a lighting, consider not so much the total area of ​​the living room as its shape;
  • artificial lighting (in comparison with the natural) can radically change the overall design concept;
  • the design of the living room is done taking into account that the lighting in it is "dosed", especially if the area of ​​the room is large;

We take care of filling

Having decided on the general style and functional breakdown of the central room, choosing a color palette and lighting, go to the last stage in the design of the living room - its filling. Often, this part of the costs when decorating the space of the central room in the house is most costly, so the choice of elements for decorating the living room should be done consciously.

Combination of white and gray

Furniture and textiles

The choice of furniture must be made, based on the overall concept of the room, thought out at the first stage of creating an interior.

Green Curtains

If we talk about the arrangement, the experienced designers do not recommend placing the furniture designs along the wall line: it is a relic of the past.

Wall decoration with decorative stone

Living room - a room that is designed to serve the maximum comfort and comfortable communication of people who are in it. Therefore, when placing furniture in the central room of a human dwelling, it is best to experiment, creating modest sized islands for better relaxation and closer communication.

Living Room Accessories

Qualitatively selected textiles not only promote relaxation, but also, to a large extent, is responsible for aesthetic compound rooms. Soft rugs, pillows or curtains, in addition to their direct duties, also perform decorative functions. They are selected in full accordance with the style chosen earlier.

Arched windows

Household appliances and accessories

If we talk about styles of high-tech or techno, then filling them with modern technology will look good in any scenario. Everything is much more complicated if the concept of the central room in the house is sustained in historical motives. Such integration is unlikely to give the interior a living room of harmony.

An example of a modern interior

You can, of course, use technology, stylized to the desired design direction. Often these are premium models that are expensive, but far from always meet expectations. Therefore, it is best to use one of the techniques of its disguise. For example, curtain curtains, cover with stucco, present as a picture or fireplace.

White and red interior of the living room

Weaving the ideas of the design of the living room into a single picture of the interior, it is very important to correctly place the accents. And the leading role in this belongs to accessories. Like the rest of the filling, they can not go against the general concept of the room. In addition, filling them with space, it is very important not to overdo it.
