3. Plan your living space effectively
Something that all living room dining room ideas have in common is their desire to have both areas function as well as possible. To do this, each needs to maximise the space it’s been given.
On the living room side, the biggest item will undoubtedly be the sofa. Try a corner sofa, pushed back into the walls, to seat as many people as possible, or even a modular version where you can tailor the size to your specific room. A small-ish sofa, such as a two-seater or a cuddle chair, can also help you save space.
Consider less imposing furniture elsewhere in the room. A glass coffee table appears to take up less space than a wood version, and you could mount your TV on the wall rather than use floor space for a separate table or unit. Footstools, beanbags or cushions can be used for additional seating, rather than buying more chairs.
Be clever with storage too. Try shelves high up on the walls, or a tall, slim display cabinet that slots into an alcove.
