Living rooms, like parlors, vestibules, and cupolas are a fading tradition in the architecture or Richmond new homes. Many builders no longer build new homes with living rooms, though if they did, most homeowners wouldn’t know how to garner the best possible use of the space. With little other than tradition to rely upon, living rooms have turned into museums, further leading them down the path to obsolescence.
However, all that can change with a little creativity. Instead of a boring furniture museum, why not creatively decorate the space into a multipurpose room that can be used as a home office? The conversion of the space from formal entertainment to include a place for business is not difficult. Merely a well-placed piece of furniture will transform the room.
Living rooms now have a life beyond the formal tea. Living rooms in a new home constructed by Richmond new home builder, Boone Homes, include decorative moldings to give the classic appeal for the traditionalist who wants to keep the formality of the space. Hardwood is another feature which adds durability. For those want a living room in their new homes the space requires no modification. For those needing the conversion, a simple piece of furniture will suffice or a set of doors can be added during construction to enclose the space into a more private study. The benefits of either configuration allow the home owner to choose.
