Living Room / October 20, 2018 / Eileen Traylor.
All homes are built according to house and planning regulations, however because of the overall design of some homes, especially those homes that are undergoing remodeling, sunken living rooms tend to differ in their depth or drop.
For instance, homes that are being remodeled and wish to host a sunken living room may only be able to drop down one or two steps to get the sunken living room since the house's building regulations would only allow that depth.
But nevertheless the sunken living room will give you a tad more space than an equal level room, and it will also help to make your home more private.
Because many people use their living rooms as entertainment rooms, also privacy is one factor that sunken living rooms afford, and afford well.
Sunken living rooms can be sectioned off with sectionals to give added privacy through the drop of the place already offers a great deal of seclusion.
The drop also helps to eliminate noise from the other rooms in the house and many people who use the living room as an entertainment room love the den-like ambiance.
Windows and lighting are also factors that help make the sunken living room a very private room since windows and natural light are arranged to fit the sunken nature of the place.
