Need help furnish open space living room/kitchen
katescandinaviaNovember 13, 2012
Trying to figure out how best utilize this space. Love the concrete patch but not sure how to make best use of it. Trying to do a combined living room setup with desk/mini office, maybe at end left corner? And maybe find a kitchen island to make kitchen more interesting and not so thrown up against the wall. Ideas?

Furniture: for living room I have white modern leather couch and oversized matching chair (see picture) with light wooden sides and a very low coffee table, also light wood. A white lacquer parsons desk for work station. Need a tv console station and maybe some credenzas. I like the whites and minimalistic feel but think maybe kitchen should be more rustic/industrial? Don't know how to combine these. Want apt to feel light, bright and open.

Also want to take out carpet. Not sure whether I should go for the concrete underneath and have it polished or go for wooden floors. What do you think?

I would go with wood floors from the kitchen to the living area, maybe a white wash grey. Like these: Dolphin Terrace Vineworx rug in a contemporary kitchen Or this: Palmerston Kitchen A metal island on rollers would work: KitchenLab Or a bar height table with stools.

I would recommend using dark stained floors. This way the concrete wall will pop!

Hi---do the entire space with porcelain tile which looks like wood... I would put in a small table for two/three on the wall opposite the sink... (see pic) a desk/work area situated between the kitchen and concrete-would give it a built-in look. Paint the walls a warm gray/taupe so it doesn't look "cold" and add rugs/hides for that rustic vibe you like. I hope this is helpful. Good Luck and CongratS!
