Interior re-design of common room pt 1

Start with purpose. What is the purpose of this room re-design? How do I want the room to feel? Is it going to be gaming related, relaxation related? What do I want to do in this room? These are the questions I’m considering.


  • Relaxed, calm and comfortable – consider brighter colours (whites, light greens/blues, grey sort of colours)


  • Little bit of console gaming (include a TV).
  • Smart home and automation (include Apple TV and HomePod mini)
  • To have morning coffee and planning and reading sessions when needed (include a seating mechanism, couch and a lighting solution, consider standing light)
  • Good communal area to entertain friends, have a chat and play some board games/video games (include a coffee table big enough to play board games, leave enough space to move around comfortably)

Layout (the area I have to work with):

The room is a “L” shape which makes it a bit awkward to design for.

Divided the room into 4 main areas:

Note: I’ve included photos of before area to have an idea what the space to work with

This is my vision of what the room will look like when finished. Maybe change the couch to beige colour.
