Trendy ideas to furnish a modern open plan living room

In recent years, interior design trends are increasingly oriented towards the creation of multifunctional and wide-ranging environments, without dividing elements and that can unite different areas of the house, such as the living area, the dining room and the kitchen. Open spaces are born from the need to make the most of the spaces, in particular in two-room apartments or small apartments, but have subsequently conquered even the most spacious homes for their ability to make the environments more functional, bright and interconnected


In terms of design, an open plan living room requires special care in the choice of furniture, colors and lighting, in order to ensure harmony and cohesion between the different areas. Furnishing solutions for this type of environment should be as modular as possible and adaptable to different needs, combining functionality and aesthetics. 


Here are some ideas and trendy proposals by Grandsoleil to furnish a modern open space with taste and style. 

How to furnish an open plan kitchen living room

To furnish an open plan kitchen living room it is important to consider not only the practical and aesthetic needs, but also the shape and size of the space itself, its structural limitations and its particularities. This type of environment requires targeted furnishing solutions, which enhance its breadth, while keeping clear the divisions between the spaces and their functions inside the house. One of the fundamental aspects to consider is the fluidity of space, which must allow easy circulation and an unhindered interaction between the different areas.


Chairs play a crucial role in this context. For a modern open space, it is preferable to opt for chairs with a light and minimal design, which do not visually weigh down the environment. The choice of materials and colors can make the difference: transparent materials such as polycarbonate or neutral colors can help to create a feeling of greater breadth of space.


Extendable tables are the best choice for an open plan kitchen living room. These modern kitchen tables represent an optimal solution for those who want to optimize the spaces, combining practicality and design, without sacrificing convivial moments. In everyday life the extendable tables can be used in their most compact size, allowing you to have more space available and greater freedom of movement, but can be extended according to needs, for example to have more seats for guests when organizing lunches or dinners. 


Bar stools for kitchens are also a versatile and often space-saving solution, especially in open spaces with island or peninsula kitchens. They can be used as additional seats, or as connecting elements between the kitchen and the living area, for example if you have a counter or a central island or wall. They are also ideal for quick lunches and breakfasts or for more informal moments, and thanks to their usually thin and light structure, they do not steal visual space.
