Room for all

With a little imagination the lounge can be so much more than 'the tv room'. A flexible sofa - like this chaise-end style or even a sofa bed - is still the centre of attention but you can craft other zones from here. A kids corner or desk-come-dining table perhaps?

If you're struggling for storage space, turn your attention to the walls. Well-placed shelving is our secret storage weapon.

Bright Ideas

Creating rooms-within-a-room is easier than you might think. A stylish screen or divider will do it, or a larger piece of furniture like a sideboard or storage unit can also be used to define a living room and dining space. Savvy smart lighting helps set the mood in each zone.
