There is nothing much that we can do to make the small house excellent. The floor plan is the main concern if you want to evoke the bigger impression at home. If the floor plan is not determined carefully, you can bring more overcrowded feeling in a small house. The first thing that you can do is removing the solid wall which separates the dining room and living room. Create one large space for combination living and dining room. When combining the living room and dining room, people are afraid. They hate it since the combination can decrease the privacy in the house. It is not true since you can use curtain, the paper divider, cabinet, potted plants, or even a rack to maintain the privacy of each room.
Rather than thinking about the negative side, you need to look at the positive value when you have combination living and dining room. It enables you to perceive bigger impressive at home. Make sure that the furniture pieces in the living room and dining room coordinate each other. Therefore, you can bring the harmony in both rooms. The modern style is more preferable for a small home. It will never consume a lot of floor space since the decoration forces the occupants to decorate the living room and dining room with simple pieces, neutral colors, and few accessories.
The window can be decorated with bamboo shades or even roman blinds. If you want to control the privacy without reducing the intensity of sunlight, a simple white floral sheer curtain is nice to have. Evade the heavy and thick curtain with ornate valances. It will create busy feeling which banishes the minimalism in the combination living and dining room. If you are interested to evoke the cozy mood, use a lot of brown undertones for the decorating both areas. For instance, you paint the living room wall in beige tone, while the dining room wall is superb in beige. The wooden floor is enchanting to have on the floor. It can create warm feeling. You can spread an eclectic area rug with exotic pattern to decorate the space.
