Open concept living room with dining room in the house
For the successful development of the living room with dining area start by measuring the space and all the furniture you will need. Then draw a schematic drawing of the part to scale on a sheet of graph paper. Cut out paper models of each piece of furniture and play around with their arrangement to find the variant that works for your space. If you live in a loft where the kitchen is also open plan, place the dining table as close to the kitchen as possible and organize the living area so that it faces the dining table. This creates a pleasant and functional optical axis between the different spaces. When you divide space in half, the floor does wonders for everything to work together. Thanks to the coating in different or matching materials, you can respectively create or eliminate the visual separation.

The fixture should match the overall design of your apartment. As for the size, don’t choose anything wider than 1/3 the length of the table so as not to clutter up the dining area. For the lounge area, you can choose recessed LED spotlights or adjustable track spotlights. If you have enough space, a very trendy option is to choose a modern floor lamp to put near the sofa.
Sober, harmonious decoration
Paint the walls in a color that will accentuate the features of the interior and match the furniture in the living room and dining area.
