A sunken living room is a cozy space in a home that is designed with open floor concept. It’s an amazing area as it gives you a separate space where you can spend quality time with your loved ones.

Before we proceed further with today’s post that showcases 50 sunken room ideas, let’s first define and understand the concept of a sunken living room. Like mentioned above, it’s a step down design where the other rooms of a house like dining, kitchen and family room are separate, but one can have a view of all the rooms while he or she sits in a sunken living room.

Sunken living room designs are not a new or recent phenomenon to have floored interior designers, but have been on this planet since a very long time, let’s say for about five decades. The concept of sunken room designs was pretty much prevalent in the sixties and seventies when nightclub owners started designing their sitting places in this style. It became so popular that many Hollywood stars and producers adopted this sunken living room concept in their homes and made their residences the talk of the town.

However, if reports are to be believed, the sunken living room designs seem to have originated much before Hollywood started taking notice of them. The era of 20’s saw many homes and hotels adopting this style that was basically meant for hosting private meetings or were used for private chit chats.

Some noteworthy designers like Alexander Girard brought about a revolution in the sunken room ideas that we see now a days with brilliant combinations of style and elegance. No longer are these living rooms considered too showy like most people assume them to be. In reality, sunken living room designs lend a very classy touch to a home décor, both inside as well as outside.

In today’s post, we have showcased some very cool and hip looking sunken living rooms that will clear any doubt that may be arising in your minds, especially if you are someone that considers a sunken living room concept to be snazzy or tacky. All the 50 images below are of stunning sunken living rooms that are classy examples of home designs that are not just gorgeous but also aesthetic in every sense.

While, there are simple sunken room ideas that would quench the thirst of people that love minimalist designs and are not too overtly gorgeous, however, for those that love the opulence, the style and a little bit of ‘snazziness’, there are plush and luxurious sunken room designs that would bring a cheer on their faces.

If going little bland is your kind of thing, you can try designing your sunken living rooms with barest of accessories that includes furniture and other things like lighting, flooring and cabinets. Most images that follow simple designs have huge windows to let in fresh air and one can spend hours altogether sitting in his or her sunken room, relaxing and enjoying the beauty outside. Such designs can incorporate the use of smart fireplace made of bricks or raw steel.

Plush or luxurious sunken room designs are suited for those that love to include designer or custom made features, like pool side sunken rooms, or those that are opulently designed with expensive furniture and embellishments.

Your sunken living areas can project a retro look with people and colorful accents splashed all across in the furniture and accessories. There is also the option of going in for circular sunken rooms that are quite hip to look and are mostly seen in hotels or in spas.

Whatever design you choose to adopt for your living room, make sure you go through these amazing sunken living room ideas before making a final decision. You will fall in love with this concept!
