As much as we rave about the space, light and flow that a large, open room gives us, there are certainly some challenges.

Design Tips for Open Floor Plans. Define spaces with furniture, rugs and lighting. Use Furnishings and Lighting to Define Areas. Carve out separate functional spaces using furniture. For example, place a sofa backed with a console table outside the kitchen to delineate the start of the living room. Further define the living room by placing a rug in the center of that space. Lighting also helps to define different parts of a room. Anchor a dining table with a chandelier, or place a large ceiling fan in the center of the living space.
