With spring of 2019 already underway, it seems as though the ongoing debate surrounding open-concept living spaces continues to be more relevant than ever. While many families prefer the idea of open living space, some families are finding an open space more difficult to manage, as it requires careful attention to the layout of your furniture and decor. If you are in the process of decorating your open concept living space this spring, consider these four critical mistakes to avoid in the process.
Creating a Room Without Designated Spaces
Many people make the mistake of leaving their open-concept space a little too open, without designated spaces to enjoy different activities such as watching TV, reading, or entertaining. As you are designing the layout of your open-concept space, it is essential to build out designated areas for different uses throughout the year.
Exclusively Lining Your Walls
The open space of open-concept living space can be especially appealing, and with this, you may be tempted to line the walls with furniture and accessories. With this, it may be a good idea to avoid lining the walls exclusively so that you do not only have furniture on the perimeter of your living space.
Letting Too Much Light in the Room
Almost everyone loves a little natural light in the room. However, with limitless light flowing into space, it may become too bright for other activities. As you are decorating your new, open-concept space, it is especially important to control the amount of light in the room, so it does not disrupt your ability to enjoy the space during the day.
Providing Minimal Intimate Seating Spaces
As you and your family are entertaining guests throughout the year, intimate seating spaces become an important consideration for the layout of your open-concept space. Rather than providing minimal designated spaces, be sure to create plenty of spaces where guests can sit and comfortably enjoy conversations with one another in the space.
