The homeowners wanted a great family area that they could entertain in, so designers created an open concept kitchen, dining and living room area. The dining room, with its long table, modern chairs and bench seating, overlooks the sunken living room. Both spaces have plenty of durable seating options-perfect for entertaining the family's friends.
This sunken living room offers a low-slung sectional and leather ottoman. The ottoman can be used as a coffee table or for extra seating. The textured wall art -- reflected in the art in the hallway -- adds to the space's soothing texture.
This South Florida home boasts a unique outdoor entertaining space highlighted by a sunken circular fire pit in the swimming pool. The space features ample cushions for relaxing as well as a bespoke lighting arrangement in the seating area and swimming pool.
This backyard patio design features a sunken lounge under an elaborate pergola. The seating area takes full advantage of the outdoor fireplace. Built-in benches with durable outdoor cushions and a practical table make this the perfect spot to relax or entertain.
In this sunken eclectic living room, a free-form banquette provides plenty of seats for entertaining. The bright orange throw pillows, cushioned seats, and shag rug add a playful pop of color against the white tile and textured walls. A wired chandelier draws the eye upward.
A sport court provides the perfect spot for at-home athletic play. The sunken court creates privacy and a natural fit for stadium seating featuring durable artificial turf. Painting the court the colors of the family's favorite team (Minnesota Gophers) brightens the scene. A storage shed offers a convenient stash for sport equipment. The shed has a green roof, which is tilted at an angle so plantings are easy to see.
