4. Use rugs and wall art to section off your room.
If you think having a smaller room means you have to sacrifice a dining area, think again. Even in small spaces, it’s possible to create different functional ‘zones’ in your room through the careful placement of rugs and space defining furniture and accessories. For example, placing a large rug under the sofa and coffee table, and a smaller one under a dining table or desk, can help the eye to see these as different areas. Group a small selection of framed prints in one area or use a slim shelving unit or console table as a divider between living and eating spaces.
