Before you decide how to divide up your space, take a look at your floor plan. Older homes have much more restrictive floor plans with kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms located in very designated spaces. Modern floor plans tend to have a more open concept, which offers more flexibility to owners. But it’s important to still use your furniture and other living room decor to help give each space its own purpose. Breaking up your space will help you get the most out of it without making any one area feel too cluttered.
