Have you ever considered taking your living space to the next level? With some careful planning and adjustment, you can ascend the aesthetics of your household by developing a greater sense of continuity between each room.

By including some interesting features and developing contrast and connection in your home you can start to truly craft your own unique living space. If you are someone who has an open plan design, you could create a sense of continuity by matching your chosen colours and furniture between rooms rather than having a mismatch of items and shades which separates.

Here are three simple design ideas that can get you started…


Why not design a coordinated entertainment unit into your living area?

A simple way to include a TV unit in your house that complements your kitchen is by using a free-standing style such as the one pictured below. You can even specify the type of furniture leg. If you’re after something that’s a bit more stand out, then you could consider a more comprehensive design, which includes both cupboards and open shelving surround a wall-mounted TV.


Why not try something different? Bench seating is a great way of building in a dining space with the additional benefit of extra storage space. Both practical and stylish!


With just a few adjustments, you can create a simple but effective bar area for your home. Impress the guests by displaying your renowned collection of exotic spirits in shelves just above a worktop for convenient drink preparation.


If you want to go above and beyond with this, you can create a complete bar unit that matches your kitchen design as well as housing all your drinks, spirits, glasses and cocktail paraphernalia. This way your guests can relax in your living area while they watch you throw together a few drinks by the fireplace!


As with all these offerings, you can choose from over 40 cabinet colours and all Linden and Manston door finishes. This gives you myriad interior décor choices. We can create bespoke units for a variety of purposes and many different situations, including working around awkward alcoves and wonky walls during the design and installation phase. We absolutely love a challenge so don’t hold back when sharing your ideas with us! Of course, if these options are not what you are after then we also have the capability to create you completely bespoke furniture. Here are some examples. At System Six, the sky is the limit.

It doesn’t have to be just adults that are treated to some quality living furniture. With all the toys/games/books that come hand in hand with children of any age, give yourself a fighting chance of staying organised and tidy with plenty of bespoke storage.

This gorgeous study was built into the eves of the house by one of System Six’s highly skilled fitters. The doors and shelving were chosen to match the beautiful antique desk, which takes pride of place.
