1. Choose a bench
You can save a lot of space by arranging your dining area around a bench instead of chairs. Plus, it’s a versatile piece of furniture: a bench can be moved around easily and used as a side table.
2. Opt for low furniture
Hanging furniture or furniture perched on little legs creates continuity and fluidity at floor level. If it’s low, it opens up the view, lets the light in and creates the illusion of a bigger space.
Does your house feel too small? You can solve the problem by decluttering and getting rid of things you no longer use.
You can also rearrange or rethink existing furniture. For example, the big family sofa can be swapped for a loveseat if your children no longer live at home, or go for a modular sofa, which is more ergonomic than a long sofa and armchairs.

Once you've sorted, given away and thrown away, it's essential to put things away, ideally in closed cupboards. A pretty basket can also quickly hide all the discarded items, magazines and toys lying around the living room.
