Tiered Coffee Table
While the surface of the coffee table holds drinks, snacks bowls, candle holders, flower vase and more, it can pull more double duty if you have a tiered coffee table in place to conceal and organize living room necessities. With a modern coffee table with accessory inlets for ornaments, books, magazines, emergency pillows, etc you can display only those things you want the guests to see. For added style and comfort, try an expandable coffee table to occupy more people (only if you are not on the budget). Otherwise, try your hands at do or ‘DIY’.
Sit on and Sleep on
Extra guests to accommodate or blessed with friends who want to spend the night? A sleeper sofa will always have your back (and your friends’/guests’ too). Depending on the square footage availability pick a full-sized sleeper or a twin-sized sleeper that matches your living room. They are stylish, super comfy, and come in all sizes and shapes to match different budgets. From sleek futon-style daybeds to modern sleeper sofas with Tempur-Pedic mattresses, take your pick to sit on and sleep on.
TV Cabinets and Wall Units
Multi-functional TV stands with ample storage space and wall units definitely top the list of must-have furniture in a multipurpose living room. They are flexible, functional and add practicality to any living room. Ideal for open layout homes, the luxurious cabinets, and TV stands act as a focal point in the living room. Some of the wall units even come with sliding panels. Depending on the space availability, you can place wine bottles, houseplants, and display cabinets to fill up the living room.
Side tables are perfect multipurpose furniture to achieve a versatile and functional look in the living room. Depending on whether you want to add a hint of visual interest, show off your travel collections, maximize the decor scheme, or simply provide an extra seating surface during a family gathering, add one or two side tables. Remember to maintain the sense of order while choosing side tables.
Invest in Built-ins
Don’t hesitate to invest in built-ins to give your living room architectural elegance as well as a sense of balance. A doorway with shelves or cabinetry around a fireplace to hold the things you love or a multifunctional bookshelf that can act as a wall décor for handing adornments etc are ideal for living rooms that are multifunctional.
With the arrival of space defining sectional sofas, the concept of ‘sofa for sitting straight’ has changed. The best part – flexible and functional sectional sofas can fit into any living space irrespective of the interior design styles and are a must-have furniture for the multipurpose living room. Many sectional sofas come with features like inbuilt phone chargers, speakers, and cup holders. Customization made it even smarter by incorporating additional storage options for magazines, remotes, and stationery. The flexible sectional sofas are easy to separate and rearrange so you can be sure that everyone gets a seat in the living room.
Ottoman means more storage, more space, and more seating. Just like a chameleon who transforms with needs, ottomans can disguise as a decorative footstool for the three-seater sofa, a file cabinet, a cocktail table alternative, a cooler, a hangout spot for your pet, a coffee table, a chic space-saving storage item or an extra seating.
