Create your own comfort area
Zoning your home can be about mood as well as function. And even if a room isn’t multi-functional, you can still use paint to highlight your favourite corners. A cosy sofa becomes the heart of your living space when you paint warm, intense colour around it, then layer up with tactile textiles to create a little haven within a room.
Here, the warm purple of Acai Berry envelopes a seating area to create a comfort nook within the wider room, which is painted in One Coat Blush Pink. And by using Simply Refresh paints, creating a zone like this has never been quicker or easier.

Organise the clutter
Make sure that your multi-functional room is completely clutter-free so you can use all available space. Get creative with storage options, such as wall hooks, shelving systems and even items like baskets and boxes, which could double-up as tables. Walls are also convenient for storing large items like bicycles or a fold-down desk – all you need are some sturdy hooks.
Utilise all available space
There’s most likely a large amount of available space in your home that you might not even know about! For example, if you’re doubling up your living room as an office, consider purchasing a corner desk that can be neatly stored in an empty space at the side of the room. Choose an L-shaped corner desk to enhance a sense of separation between the office and the rest of the living room.
Add in some divider furniture
Does your multi-functional room consist of a living room area and a dining room area? If so, a great way to separate the different spaces in the room is to use divider furniture and accessories. This can be anything from shelving units to curtains.
Make your open-plan living room feel bigger and brighter by dotting a few houseplants around. Not only do plants help clean the air and remove impurities, but they also keep us connected to nature.
The bigger the houseplant, the better. But if you’re short on space, you could always use planters that can be attached to the wall or ceiling.
