Without the help of walls, it can turn into a cluttered storage of furniture. How do you prevent having a furniture display? You don’t necessarily have to renovate and tear down walls to achieve it. Here are 6 cheap and easy open floor plan ideas to help you master the open space trend like a pro.

1. Drawing a basic plan is the best way to easily envision and decide how you want to distribute your space. Consider the different environments you want to have: a relaxation area, reading corner, study, and so on. Having your personal needs clear before you start is key for optimized distribution.

2. Use curtains to separate spaces. The fabric lets the light through it doesn’t feel tight or heavy. When choosing curtains, avoid blackouts and venture into innovative designs, such as bamboo curtains.
