The idea of “sunken” places dates back to the twenties of the last century, and a culmination of popularity was experienced in the late sixties and seventies, not only in private homes but also in popular nightclubs. If you decided for “sunken” living room you don’t need a lot of money. This way of decor is great for breaking the monotony in the home. Take care not to overwhelm things, because if you do this, the “sunken” area with a seating set will lose its central position, which you should inevitably have.
You caught my attention when you showed off examples of sunken living rooms directly next to some fireplaces. Fireplaces have always given off the feeling of extra comfort whenever I see them, and combining them with a sunken seating space could really allow people to lounge around in peace. I’ll take these examples into account when I find a remodeling contractor in the area that can assist me with my project.
