Formal sitting rooms are used on an infrequent basis in most homes, but homeowners can maximise their square footage by transforming these underused areas into multifunctional spaces. Sitting rooms should be well-thought out in terms of the how the space is used, according to interior designer Niki VanEch. Another interior design specialist, Todd Carter, said that sitting rooms can function as dressing rooms and storage spaces. He has helped clients turn their underused sitting rooms into home offices or hobby and craft spaces.
Interior designer Jodie Rosen takes a similar view, suggesting that sitting rooms can be used as reading areas or even as small gymnasiums. One of her recent projects involved turning a sitting room into a glamorous and functional home office, while retaining the sitting room's relaxation features. Rosen believes a sitting room should not be considered as a space for entertaining, however, due to its proximity to the master bedroom. The potentials are endless for transforming the traditional sitting room. Design business Forma Design used a clever layout to integrate the sitting room and bedroom space for one of their clients. This included a master bedroom suite and adjacent dressing, lounge, and TV room.
