One of the prominent features of Neoclassical style is its sizable interior in a large space. It’s also the biggest challenge when bringing neoclassical style into living room space of the tube house as this type of house is usually narrow in width and long in depth.
To overcome limitations of width, the living room should be heightened to highlight delicate decorative lines in the ceiling and walls.

For the living room, natural light can be brought into via skylights, void spaces or transparent glass doors. In addition, electric light should also be added to increase the luxury of space. White light or yellow light is a useful suggestion to bring elegant and harmonious beauty. The neoclassical style usually has a chandelier with an elaborate design and characteristic crystal material placed in the middle of the room. Plaster ceilings together with LED and wall lamps are also favored by many homeowners.
4. Note when choosing materials
Like the classic style, the neoclassical style represents a luxury. Therefore, furniture in the room should be selected with high-class materials such as marble floors, leather or velvet sofas, fur rugs, wooden cabinets, and bronze decorations.

To minimize the heavy feeling of furniture, homeowners should choose furniture with less patterns. On the market today, there are many interior designs that have been renovated with simpler lines and details, retaining a sophisticated look without being ostentatious. Gently curves with slightly proportioned ledges are perfect suggestions for a neoclassical living room.
Neoclassical style is favored by its adaptable ability in different spaces. Therefore, with a reasonable layout, homeowners still have a luxurious living room space in their tube house.
