Open space living rooms with airy and stylish interior decors

Open space living rooms are not typical to a single style. They are, however, mostly seen in houses and residences as opposed to apartments, where the space is always limited. The main advantage for such a living room is flexibility. Typically, an open floor plan includes the living room, the dining room and the kitchen. But these three spaces are not very clearly delimitated so the boundaries are blurry and sometimes inexistent.

This allows you to either extend the kitchen into the living or dining room or to reduce a certain area in order to advantage another. You have a flexible and dynamic space that can be reconfigured within certain limits. As for the interior décor of open floor plans and open space living rooms, a very common choice is modular furniture that taken this flexibility even further. It allows the user to change the décor according to his needs and preferences and makes these changes simple and easy.

Typically, such spaces share a continuous interior décor. However, if you prefer to delimitate the functions, you can use colors. Still, a uniform décor makes the space seem even bigger and allows the atmosphere to be airy. Simplicity makes a room look uncluttered and exacerbates its main characteristics. It also always helps to have large windows so that the space can be bright and filled with light. But let’s take a look at a few examples so that we can analyze these elements closely.
