Creative Design Solutions to Maximize Your Living Space
There’s more to today’s spaces than meets the eye as homeowners are transitioning their rooms to serve as multifunctional spaces. With some design inspiration and creative tweaking, you can maximize the functionality of your rooms to accommodate today’s evolving lifestyles.
This month, we explore some creative design solutions for multipurpose rooms that are not only beautiful, but fun and functional as well.
If you live in a small home, you have big potential when it comes to making the most of your space. All you need is a vision and some inspiration! If fun and games is what you’re striving for, look no further than this cozy living room. A small game table off to the side lends a fun vibe to the space, which can be a great place for casual conversation and game time. It’s an easy way to add a “game room” without the actual “room.”
Dining tables and kitchen islands are playing double-duty these days as homeowners can easily transform them into work-from-home and homework stations. Does this appeal to you? If so, keep in mind that the best part is when work time is over, you can easily return the space to its intended use. Plus, you don’t have to go too far for a quick snack!
Open spaces—the great divide
Open spaces are one of today’s most popular home designs. They can also be one of the most challenging to work with—especially when you’re transitioning the space to serve multiple functions. So, what’s the key to defining the space? Design experts agree that area rugs are one of the top picks when it comes to the great divide. An area rug can define the space and draw the distinction between the two spaces. And here’s another design tip: Place your sofa or chairs with the backs facing out. This barrier effect will give the illusion of an invisible line and enclose the space, making it feel like its own room.

Some homeowners are finding that their formal spaces can be put to better use by transforming them to suit their particular lifestyles. What was originally designed to be a formal living or dining room can easily be transitioned into a fun family space—as seen in this fabulous photo. This fun billiards room is a great escape for when you need to have some fun time with family and friends.
