Before creating your dream open-plan space, it is advisable to take into consideration what you will be using it for on a day-to-day basis. For instance, do you want to create a relaxing haven for cozy nights or are you looking for an ultimate entertainment space? If done the right way, an open plan living space can add a real wow factor to your home but bear in mind that it has to work for your lifestyle. Therefore, comprehend your needs and think about what you want to achieve with your space.
Creating a Fluid and a Definite Place
Using rugs below furniture groupings is a good way to denote zones within a larger area. However, not every rug is going to work for you. I mean, you need to look for a rug that will match your floor and furniture so that the look can be crisp and beautiful. Therefore, take your time and decide which rug is going to work for you. In our collection, we have a wide array of rugs designed to work for open-plan living spaces.
One of the most popular and practical rugs that will work in most cases is our Aaradhya Rose-Tinted Rug. It is a luxurious rug of fantastic quality and design that lies perfectly on the floor.

This characterful rug's aesthetic is an effortless route to liven up the look of a living room, bedroom, or even an office, all the while being practical, durable, and easy to clean.
Use Decorative pendants and overhead lighting
Decorative pendants and overhead lighting can be used to draw attention to a centre point in your open living design. Places where you can include such items are living and dining areas. This way, you will be creating a practical and beautiful space that will be the centre of attention. If you would like to spice up your dining or living room with these items, we have a huge catalog of them. Our most practical and popular decorative pendant is the Dalí Glass & Gold Vase. Inspired by legendary artist Salvador Dalí, our Dalí vase offers a unique high-end look to any open living space. With it, you can make your flowers & plants pop with this statement piece
Smart furniture arrangements that suit open-place spaces
It is highly advisable to create areas within areas so that your interior can have depth. You should also consider orientation and it is a good practice to arrange your furniture in a way that allows an invitation point within a grouping. If your back sofa is located in the middle of a room, placing an attractive console table behind it can serve as a surface to hold beautiful pendants that will liven the room.
If you are looking for a console table, we have a wide range of them. However, the best for open-plan living is the Lanty Luxury Elm Console Table. It is an excellent hand-finished console made of natural elmwood and golden brushed brass proceeded by Sotti & Co. The versatile unit can be either standing by the wall or placed in the centre of the room for a stylish living environment.
