The steps and seats
Living areas may be uneven for many reasons, but the steps leading to the level of the room can be used for much more than just a way to get to another level of the house . Install pads fit on each of the steps to create a banquet-style seating area. If you’re on a budget, simply buy some oversized pillows or sew some of your own clothing and place them along the perimeter of your sunken living room. Guests can feel comfortable on the floor or steps, creating an intimate conversation area.

If your living room is in a very steep slope, you might want to consider installing a handrail on the steps to enhance security or add a decorative touch. Depending on your style, you can choose from ornate bronze or wrought iron railings, or perhaps opt for a minimalist modern railing and made of stainless steel with small wires that are barely detectable.
