If you’ve heard the expression «conversation pits», we know that Americans call the sunken rest areas or living rooms. This is a fairly new, not yet managed to become traditional, design method, which is popular for use in creating luxury houses. A special area located below the main buildings, arrange not only in the courts, but also in swimming pools and in large interior spaces of residential homes.
These cosy venues often have a rectangular or circular shape. The area within which people are close enough to each other, has to maintain intimate informal conversation. Confidential atmosphere and good for family time and for entertaining guests.
This area can be considered multifunctional. It is designed for a large company, it offers a wonderful view on the coast
If you place such an area in the yard, under the open sky, the appearance of the area becomes much more effective. Even in the most minimalist version, these living rooms look incredibly luxurious. Note that there is no elegant furniture for decorating this original construction is not required.
To make the flooded room in your yard are attractive, but in this building there are some features that you should consider. After all, a country station, usually attended by the representatives of the family in several generations.

- Inside the steps leading up to it, which is not so easy to go down and then to rise, elderly family members and disabled people. And help them will be difficult if steps are traditionally narrow. Together they did not fit.
These design flaws are unlikely to cause you to abandon the plan. But you will consider them when planning the steps and in the process of decorating this room. It should be not only amazing but also safe construction, attracting everyone’s attention. And this is the most important.
This room is not quite completed, but it is made taking into account the interests of all family members. Her whole inner part is made soft and the stairs are wide enough

There are for such structures one General rule: the height of furniture, which is located inside buildings, shall not exceed the height of the stairs. Then it will look particularly harmonious.

It is optimal to have here comfortable sofas with pillows and elegant coffee table that is placed in the center. Sometimes have the TV, but keep in mind that the venue for talks should be separated from the area in which is home theater or TV.

In fact, the living room moved to the part of the reservoir, which can be called shallow.
Guests will appreciate the innovation, but a full dinner in these conditions, the file will not work. Crumbs from food can spoil the water in the pool. But drinks will be very handy. On the Playground, it is appropriate to build a removable canopy. By day, he will protect from direct and reflected sunlight, and at night you can enjoy the starry sky.
Combined with the pool lounge can be used in the hot season, when even the night does not give the body needs relief, and the water in shallow water such peace to ensure can
Another option is a stand-alone option inside the bowl. Living here can be built so that water from its internal part was separated by solid walls. This interesting variant can be used only in the warm season. Inside the living room will be much cooler due to the fact that its walls are washed by the water.
