Big Ideas for Big Spaces

Having lots of space is great—until you have to figure out how to fill it. Cathedral ceilings, vast areas of open flooring and 40-foot walls that span from one room to the next are a few of the lofty challenges larger rooms can present. Here are some big ideas to help you retain the warm, cozy feel you love.

Go Ahead, Go Big

Too many small items can make your large living area feel cluttered no matter how much space you have. Don’t be afraid to go big! A hefty coffee table or a sofa with plump cushions and ornate arms will give you a setting with plenty of character.

Warm Up

Splashing warm colors throughout your space is a great way to create an inviting atmosphere. And don’t be afraid to make bold design choices—they just might add the dose of charm your room needs.

Bring It In

A practical and attractive way to fill up your large area is to float your furniture away from the walls. It will help you avoid having an unwieldy space in the center of the room, and you’ll have a more intimate seating area for conversations with family and friends.

Weightier details often associated with traditional furniture, such as chunky feet, roll arms and bold patterns, are perfectly appropriate in large spaces.
