When you enter the house, you arrive directly in the living room. We will, therefore, take an interest in the different possibilities available to you to create an entry space in your home sweet home.
WHY CREATE A NEW SPACE AS AN ENTRANCE?
Before going into the heart of the matter and presenting you with the solutions that will allow you to create a new space in your living room, we will first wonder why. Knowing why we are doing this allows us to define what our real needs are and then meet them. So here are the main reasons that generally encourage us to make this type of arrangement:
- You’re tired of seeing the “entrance” bazaar when you’re in the living room
- Your living room seems too large
- You want to have dedicated storage, rather than putting the coats on the dining room chairs
- You want to cut the feeling of cold coming from the front door
- You would like to preserve the privacy of your accommodation when a stranger rings the doorbell
CREATE AN ENTRY WITH A GLASS ROOF
The first solution to create an entry into an existing space: the canopy or the second day. What is interesting with this solution is that it allows partitioning without losing brightness or without completely breaking up space. However, the installation of the canopy requires some work. It is often a solution that you put aside when you are a tenant. There are canopies in large DIY stores that are easy to install on a base. There is also the tailor-made solution which is more expensive but which allows you to choose that they will be the dimensions of your new entry to the nearest millimeter!
CREATE AN ENTRY WITH A CUSTOM PIECE OF FURNITURE
We remain on the idea of tailor-made but we will be interested in furniture. Why tailor-made? Always with the idea of saving space and arranging the space so that it perfectly suits your needs. Let us not forget that in your project you will amputate part of your living room to create an entrance. You will, therefore “lose” space. The tailor-made minimizes this loss of space. You can choose the depth of the piece of furniture, its length, its height, etc. A cabinet maker or a custom furniture manufacturer offers you endless choices to arrange your space. Obviously, this comes at a cost, but you should no longer see it as an investment that will make your daily life easier.
