In Israel, the SALON is a combined living room and dining room area. For those who watch HGTV, you may have heard this space referred to as an “open floor plan”.
The salon is typically where the dining room table, couches, book cases, and other dining room pieces are located. Additionally, this space is often used as a playroom or office.
Two challenges of a salon are physically arranging the space for maximum efficiency and keeping it decluttered so the items don’t overwhelm the space.
This family has a spacious salon and good placement of furniture (not pictured: dining room table and bookcases).
In this salon organizing session, items with a designated place were returned. Out of season items and things not currently in use were boxed up and relocated to an ARON (closet/wardrobe). Other items were brought to the MACHSAN (storage room).
As you can see, once the extra items are gone and everything has a place, the room is inviting and has visual appeal.
