Use an L-shaped sectional as a room divider. Another great place for your L-shaped sofa is between two seating areas or dividing the living and dining spaces in an open-plan space. Fill dead wall space rather than letting it go bare. In a large space, it is nearly always best to pull furniture off the walls, creating cozy arrangements closer to the center of the space. The trouble is, this can leave a great deal of wall space bare, do not let it go to waste!
In addition to flooring type, you can change up the style and color of your flooring to create different feels. A vivid geometric design is a great addition to a modernist space, while refinished hardwood floors can harken back to a historic homes past. You can use complementary hues between your floors and walls to create the overall color palette.
For a color addition that is not too strong, paint one wall and leave the others white. Here, the blue wall stands out against the white ceiling, rug, and adjacent wall. The combination of blue and white invites the light from outside into the room, creating a feeling of openness. Adding accessories in colors from the same blue family helps the accent wall feel at home.
Use a daybed as a room divider. In a really large living room, you may wish to create two full seating areas. Mark the separation while keeping the flow between the two zones with furniture you can easily see over: a daybed, bench, or chaise is a good option. Define zones with a console table.Another option for sectioning off parts of a large living room is floating your sofa in the middle of the room and placing a console table behind it.
