Furniture is an easy way to differentiate between the different areas of a living room. If you have a large window in your living room place your dining table and chairs close to the window for lovely natural lighting. And if you have a fireplace in your living room place your sofa or chairs close to the fire place as this will create a more relaxed section in your living room. 

2. Play with colour, patterns and textures 

Colour, patterns and textures can also help to section off an open plan living room, while also still tying everything together perfectly. You can paint a wide door frame or arch the same colour as the wall of a different section to keep a cohesive theme running throughout your living room.

3. Turn to mother nature

Adding some greenery is also one of the easiest ways to connect different areas within an open plan living room. If your kitchen connects with your living room add a few plants here and there and you'll see how the entire room connects as a whole.

Choose furniture pieces that's comfortable and add rugs and scatter cushions for some texture.
