There are few things that are more important than maximizing available space and making use of every inch on offer, when it comes to planning for a contemporary urban home. Yet, for most of us, smart management of space is a constant issue – a problem stems from poor design and décor choices. But you can change all that this year by removing clutter, creating a spacious living environment and bringing home furniture that offers ample storage even while being space-savvy. It is undoubtedly the living room that sets the trend in this regard and today we flip through 25 inspirations that should get you started in the right direction.
The sofa is much more than just another piece of furniture in your home. It sets the tone for the rest of your interior both in terms of style, décor choices and the general theme and color scheme that you use. If you happen to have an open plan living, then your sofa choice becomes even more crucial. We understand that many of our readers are not really interested in changing such a pivotal piece of the home decorating jigsaw all too often and that is why many stay away from a colorful couch. Instead a sofa in black and white or even gray is the preferred choice. But 2016 and the first half of 2017 seem to disagree with this!
Why waste all that vertical space on offer in your living or dining room by choosing bookshelves that barely stand a few feet tall? Modern masterpieces like the one below ensure that you never have to again worry about finding space for the new bestseller at your home! These gigantic bookshelves also create a stunning backdrop in the living room and generally seem most at home in loft-style residences and industrial apartments. Throw in a library ladder or even a mezzanine-style, metallic walkway, and you have a home library / living room that would be the envy of every bibliophile.
