Planning your living room extension? Here are our top tips on how to decorate your new living space


When you’ve started to outgrow your home, moving isn’t always the first financially viable option. This is where we come in, we can help you design and build an extension that gives you and your family back the space that you need.

We often see that family homes go for open-plan extensions, be it a kitchen, living room, or loft conversion.

If you are thinking of getting an extension and are wondering about how you can decorate your living space once its completed, then read on for our top tips on decorating an open plan living space.


Create a common theme

Now, although each and every room has its own purpose and therefore will be decorated slightly differently to represent this, they all need a common theme. A common theme can be the colour or textures or patterns that are used in each room. Deciding on your common theme will help you tie together a collection of rooms, making them feel much homelier.


Make a statement

Using large, eye-catching objects is a great way of making a statement in a room and doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. There are plenty of cheap yet gorgeous vintage items that can be found at markets across London that can be used to make a subtle yet captivating statement. 


Think about the lighting

The lighting in your room has a very powerful influence on how the room will be perceived and ultimately influence what the room will be used for. Brighter LED lights are great for the Kitchen or bathroom; however, the slightly dimmer lamp alternative is better for creating a calm and relaxed mood in the lounge or living room.
