Before changing the interior of the living room,embody your ideas on paper or in a special computer program. Outline a few options, then select the best one. If there are no clear ideas, then below are several options for the division of the hall.
Living room and bedroom
Zoning of the room begins with the choice of a place forsleep. At the entrance to the premise should first go to the rest area, and then - the bed. From the furniture in the bedroom you need a bed or a sofa, a small bedside table and a wardrobe. For walls suitable wallpaper or paint warm soothing colors: green, peach, yellow, pale pink, etc. Even if you like purple, do not use it too much in the interior. This is depressing. In the living room you will need a TV, a sofa, an armchair or an ottoman, a coffee table, a chest of drawers, shelves or a bookcase. For walls, you can use brighter colors. Photo walls will look good, but they should not be blocked by furniture. The living room and bedroom can be divided bypodium, which raises the bed to a small elevation, thereby separating one zone from the other. Visual zoning of the room is done with a different finish of the floor. The easiest way to select a bedroom is to lay a carpet. More difficult - combine carpet and linoleum, put the bed on a pedestal, which can be made of wood (logs and plywood). A wardrobe is a good fit for the room separator. The front side is turned into the bedroom, and the rear wall into the living room. Plus in this arrangement is that beyond the large closet you can not see the bed. The downside is that the back wall is often made of plywood, it will look ugly from the side. Therefore, a bookcase or a small shelf is better for sharing. If you put the bed on a pedestal, then zaveset its transparent curtains. Do not need to use tight impervious - no one will see how you beautifully and wonderfully beat the sleeping area. To divide the room you can put a partition of brick, gypsum board, wood, foam concrete, etc. A wide partition is used as a stand for flower pots, souvenirs and other interesting things. The disadvantage is that it can not be moved unlike furniture. Sometimes designers offer iron forged partitions. It is very modern and original.
