Stuck with a space that’s tough to configure? See what a difference a little ‘design’
0:04
can make.

Here’s a look at the challenges and the changes in this typical l-shaped layout. First
0:12
challenge? – function. Arranging a long narrow space can be difficult….this room
0:16
needed a focus and got one with A DIY entertainment center. Made up of shelving and stock cabinets,
0:22
it spans an entire wall and is now the reason for the room. It provides storage and style,
0:27
and even incorporates the tv. Wrapping the look onto an adjoining wall, by adding a small
0:31
workspace, extends the functionality. Matching the desk to the color and height of the cabinets
0:36
makes it feel completely integrated. The last change in the living room? Shifting the orientation
0:41
of the seating area to a diagonal. It more clearly defines the space and makes the most
0:45
of the room’s new focus. Next challenge…a front door that opened
0:51
right into the living area..awkward. The change…adding a room divider to create a natural entryway.
0:57
This modular flexible project can be stacked higher or lower, and a variety of drawers
1:01
and cubbies provide practical storage as well as display space. The design allows light
1:06
to pass through – keeping things open and bright….and a handy bench with built-in
1:10
shoe storage is the perfect complement. Another practical project – a message board with hooks
1:15
to hang purses or coats – makes this entryway a place with purpose.
1:21
In the dining area….the main challenge was the lack of storage. The change here was easy….adding
1:26
this upcycled buffet provides not only the much-needed storage, but by hanging art and
1:30
plants around it – it becomes a real focal point for the room.
1:35
all these changes support more functionality, defining separate areas to look and LIVE less
1:39
like one big room. So if you’re challenged by uninspired surroundings,
1:43
make some changes for a space that works for you.
