How to Design a Multifunction Livingroom

It takes more than decorating rooms when you are thinking about designing a multifunction living room. In some modern house, especially when it is a small building or apartment, living room performs a lot of function. It is not only a place where you welcome your guests, but also to gather with your family or room mates. There are several things you have to pay attention to design this kind of livingroom.

Easy access



Before thinking about the details of your new livingroom, you must consider the exact position of the room. In most building, the living room is built in the front part of the house. Although there are other houses or apartments that have livingroom in the center of the building, especially in an open layout and in a small building.

If you want to have a multifunction livingroom, you have to create easy access to the living room. Make sure there is nothing to block the access to the livingroom. Avoid any furniture and permanent installation like door that blocks the access to your livingroom. However, you also cannot build an access that allows people to suddenly come into the room. It might make you uncomfortable. If there is already a door that gives instant access for people from outside to come, you have to arrange the furniture well.

Always try to visualize your design
