You can go after this design if you have an L-shaped divider or at least any kind of divider separating your living room from other spaces of the house. You can box in the divider with drywall and add an attractive wood top as shown in this picture. The divider can even be replaced by open shelving, railings, or possible with a built-in sofa. A couple of pots with flower and plant, table lamps, a ceiling fan, sectional, and a couple of sofas will do the rest for you.
Step-down or sunken living spaces have a long history that goes back to the late ‘50s. The style is making its way back to the modern interiors because of more practical purposes. This style of dropping the floor is necessary where raising the roof is not possible. The use of partitions, walls, or thresholds also facilitates smooth transition from one material to another, which is rather difficult with open floor plans characteristic of mainstream design.
Open plan living room ideas Created by ‘Ownby Design‘, this living room is the part of an open floor plan but a few steps down distinguishes it from the rest of the space along with giving a touch of intimacy. Here, the living room, kitchen, and the dining area are flowing from one space to another but still have visibly distinct partitions. The sectional right in front of the divider and custom-designed pillows have created a comfy seating for watching your favorite show on the TV.
