Make an Entrance
Instead of welcoming guests directly into the living room, use a multipurpose divider to create a sense of entry that separates but doesn’t close off the adjoining spaces. Tucked on the entry side, the bench portion of the room divider offers storage for shoes and other essentials. Soft blues, greens, and wood tones introduce a cohesive color palette for the entry and adjacent spaces.
Divide and Conquer
Open shelves of the multipurpose divider offer a curated peek into the living area, while drawers hide clutter. Because it’s modular, the piece can be configured as a TV cabinet, display shelves, or a stand-alone bench.
A compact drop zone for keys, bags, mail, and other small items supplements the closet. Install a message center with both a chalkboard section for notes and a corkboard for paper reminders.
Custom Looks Without the Cost
White corner-to-corner shelves and cabinets in the living area create design impact. Use stock upper kitchen cabinets to provide a custom storage look without custom costs. The open shelves are simple in design and installation. Intimate seating pulls furniture away from the walls while a neutral rug anchors the grouping. An accent rug picks up the recurring blue.
Add Office Space
Transform an unused corner into a desk that blends with the focal wall. An armless upholstered chair and pillow soften the space.
Define the Dining Space
Distinct but connected, the dining space features bold, clean-lined furniture and coordinating colors. Give an outdated dresser a style boost and new life as a serving station. Easy-to-apply veneer on the drawer fronts helps coordinate wood tones throughout the spaces.
