There aren’t any rules when it comes to decorating your home the way you’d like to or using your space. You can do whatever you want, and this means making all of the rooms as usable as possible for you.

Natural light makes even the most cramped, bijou spaces appear bigger and brighter. Try to maximize natural light by angling furniture towards windows and doors and using light colors for the walls and flooring. Hang mirrors on the wall to bounce light around and avoid clutter at all costs. Open your curtains and blinds wide every morning and consider adding light to dark spaces with new windows, skylights, lanterns, or doors. Check out door installations with Opal Enterprises for ideas and inspiration. You can choose from a range of styles for standard windows and doors or opt for patio doors that offer easy access to the garden and great views.
As well as creating spacious, open, and light living spaces, adding natural light to your home can also boost your mood and make you feel good. Studies show that bright rooms make us feel better and natural light can also enhance productivity

Good article about living room. I read an article about indoor decoration before, which refers to how make small space look big.
Darcy Koch says
These tips are very helpful. I do declutter regularly. I also have my couch placed to divide the living room.
Great tips. I have a small home and love finding ways to make the house feel larger. I have huge issues dealing with clutter. I put things away, however the rest of the family are less successful. I bet if everything was put away it would automatically feel so much larger.

I would think a divider would make an already small space too small. I agree that curtains and Dr cluttering helps. Something I desperately need to do.
