Think about the furniture you want to put in this space and look at the proportions. Do you want reclining chairs that when fully outstretched take up all the space? Or would you prefer a chair that doesn’t recline fully, leaving space for a side table or maybe a fire pit?
There are many options of stacking furniture which can work really well if you occasionally need to seat a family. Some chairs and nests of tables stack together, which, when you’re not using them can work as a side unit. These are brilliantly versatile and definitely worth a look.
If you need to address space issues, you can opt for multi-functional pieces of furniture. Use table and chair sets that transform into recliners and oven units that double as dining tables and so on.
