How To: Decorating large, open concept room or main floor

Calgary Infill homes are often built with modern, open concept main floor plans. The main floor is usually a comparable size to a typical suburban home, but as a large open room. Decorating a large, open concept main floor is an exciting task- as you think about everything that is possible in your space. Infill homes have beautiful open spaces that are so fun to decorate, but the task can feel overwhelming. So in some ways having a large space is a challenge, but the best kind of challenge! (Who doesn’t love lots of room???) The place to start when decorating a large room is to choose and arrange furniture so that the room has individual areas that work well together and flow naturally into one another. For example, in a large living room, you may have a defined television watching area, reading/office nook, window seat for lounging or gaming area. Sectionals are great for creating one large open seating area, or can be used to nicely close off an area to make a distinct television area. Rugs are another great way to define seating and conversation areas. Consider the size of the room and ceiling height when arranging furniture. If you have low ceilings, lower furniture will help keep that open feeling. If your space has high ceilings, low furniture may get lost in the vast openness. With all the space, it can be tempting to push all the chairs and seating too far apart. Remember to keep seating close enough together that if people were actually sitting – they don’t have to yell to hear each other....

How are infills (particularly Infill Hub Group properties) still doing so well in such a slow market? There are a few reasons: Infills meet demand of new, spacious homes in established neighbourhoods that make access to work, school and play easier. Calgary’s inner city communities are also walkable, and allow for different transportation options. Established neighbourhoods also have a certain charm to them, with mature trees and close distances to small businesses and specialty stores. You can make it your own. Infills are all unique, and have the opportunity for the buyer to give input on designs, colours, finishings etc. This allows you to showcase your style and personality in your home so that your new home is really you. Instead of searching for the perfect home in the perfect location, you can build Infill Hub Group marketing. The Infill Hub Group markets all of its infills in a way like no other Calgary realtor. As soon as a builder has plans ready for their infill – the house is pre-listed on the Infill Hub website. This is often long before the house itself is ready to go on the MLS. We also take you through the construction process by video. Update videos of our builds can be found on the IH website, and on our Facebook page.
