Another factor to take into consideration is the separation of rooms, many open floor plan homes offer little to no room separation. Here are our favorite ways to decorate an open floor plan while getting the most out of your space.
Focus on a Focal Point
We love the idea of a modern and unique fireplace as the main focal point, is perfect when you want that contemporary touch felt throughout the entire living room area. For that bold contemporary touch paint your fireplace backdrop a gemstone hue to bring that stark modern touch.
When decorating or rearranging a room, you want to focus on a focal point and allow that to guide you. Using the focal point as the main focus allows a space to appear less intimating and more available to creativity. If you have a gorgeous fireplace or a fab window space, focus on that and rearrange all larger pieces around it.
Rugs, Rug and Rugs?
If your open floor plan is quite expansive and there isn’t much division a rug is a perfect way to go. The rug will create seamless division exactly where you want it. This is the perfect way to break down your decorative space.
In larger rooms or rooms that are connected in a way can easily be separated and defined by rugs. We love the visual aspect of a rug as it opens the space up while having a bold definition that outlines the function in that specific room.
Don’t Forget the Accent chairs
Accent chairs are the perfect additional furniture pieces due to how much personality they bring while still being simple. To further enhance the area consider colorful chairs, the color will add to the room while adding focus to your living room area.
While it may seem like a good idea to purchase a sectional and not deal with the rest of the space. However, if you want to bring a cozy, intimate feel adding a variety of seating throughout the room can be a great way to do so. One or two accent chairs not only bring extra seating, but they are conversation starters.
Having a dining space or a breakfast nook with simple seating is an excellent way to do that. We love the idea of bright chairs brings the main focus of your eating space. Doing so brings direct focus to that area while still breaking the space down.
If you have a larger than life space and want to make it work for you, add a designed area. This can be done by adding a small workspace, a breakfast nook or a reading space. The key working with furniture pieces that feel and look cozy while still being double duty.
Getting creative is one of the best ways to bring your personality on display in your home. The key is adding colors and textures that further emphasis who you are and what message you would like your home to portray.
An open floor plan allows you to get creative with your furniture pieces. If you are a big fan of eclectic décor this is the perfect space to add that unique lamp you love or that accent table that seems to not fit anywhere else.
Accessories come in multiple different colors and formats so much so that you can change your entire feel with simply having the right accessories. Add colorful pillows and display them around the room for a welcoming feel.
