Sunken Living Room
We are doing a renovation and our block slopes down quite sharply where our new kitchen / living area will be... To help get the level down (to avoid overlooking into our neighbours), we are looking at having a sunken living so after kitchen will step down to living area (couch, coffee table, TV) and then this will flow direct out to deck pool area.We are doing this as if we don't we will stand in living room and be able to see right into neighbours backyard and living room so the sunken will remove this as well as provide indoor / outdoor connection with bifolds in the summer months...Plenty of negative feedback and "don't do it" from architects but we actually think it will look good and be very functional for what we want...But negative feedback makes us worried and it is a risk... Any advice welcomed...There are plenty of great pics of Sunken's on Houzz.. Plans attached and example.
