Split Level Home Designs – For A Clear Distinction Between Functions

A split-level home is a very distinct style of house. It has multiple floor levels which are staggered. Typically, the main level contains the living areas: the kitchen, the dining room and family room and usually has two short sets of stairs. In total, there are usually three or four levels.

By separating these two spaces, the overall layout becomes more balanced

The entry is on the middle floor and the front door opens directly into the living area. There are also numerous other styles of split level homes, depending on the number of levels, their distribution and the overall layout and design of the house.

Square Coffee Table In The Living Room

Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!!! Ah, the coffee table. The finishing piece of a living room. It’s like the shoe of an outfit – a proportionately small piece that makes all the difference in the overall result. It’s common to see a variety of coffee tables in living rooms – size, color, material, style, and shape. Rounded coffee tables have the advantage of minimizing potentially hazardous corners; plus, they never look askew. Rectangular coffee tables mimic the shape of most sofas, so they automatically make sense. But what about a square coffee table? Is there a place in design for them? Indeed there is.


This large coffee table, in a light grey with clean, minimal lines, actually leaves a pretty small visual footprint, despite its size. The table’s large size makes it useful for people at all seats in the room, and the four neat stacks of objects on the square table are balanced and organized.

Fireplace Accessories That Will Light Up Your Living Room

It has be true to say that a fireplace is the focal point of a room, whether it is in use or not. Nowadays, we may spend more time relaxing in our living rooms staring a screen, rather than the hearth, but the fireplace remains the big draw on the eye, particularly when the room is first entered.
