Some Simple Ways to Divide a Long Living Room
A Long Living Room can be broken up into dining and seating spaces.
A long living room can feel awkward and can be difficult to decorate. If you aren’t careful, it can end up looking like a bowling alley. It also can be difficult to create seating areas that aren’t disrupted by the flow of traffic. Breaking up the space, both visually and physically, by creating sensible traffic patterns and using visual tricks to make the space feel more square will go a long way toward making your Long Living Room look and feel inviting.
How to Divide Long Living Room
Divide and Conquer
In a Long Living Room with ample width, create multiple seating areas to visually divide the room. Turn a sofa so it sits perpendicular to the long walls. Place a coffee table and a pair of chairs in front of the sofa to create a traditional living room seating space. Behind the sofa, place a sofa table or room divider screen to visually complete the seating space and mark the beginning of a new space. In the new space, place a grouping of four chairs around a coffee table or consider creating a new dining space. Alternatively, place a desk and bookshelves in the space to create an office.
