Open concept living spaces are favourable because they can make even the smallest of spaces appear a lot larger than they are. Open concept spaces are not only functional for entertaining, but also if you have a family. From the kitchen you can keep an eye on your children in the family room at the same time as you interact with your guests in the dining room. Open concepts not only appeal to homeowners who are knocking down walls to achieve optimal space, but also to potential buyers that are in search of this must-have layout.

When decorating your open concept space, it may be more challenging than you think. You want to ensure that the design and décor of your space flows from one room to the next. Instead of designing one room at a time, the trick is to think of your main floor as one big space!

To ensure a smooth transition from one room to the next, here are 3 things to consider when decorating your open concept space:

Wall Colour

The wall colour in your kitchen doesn’t have to be the exact same as the colour in your family and dining room, however the colour scheme should match. If you’re unsure about what colour(s) to choose, opt for neutrals like grey.


Since flooring can be an expensive and time consuming project, it is worth taking the time to research your options. While flooring doesn’t have to be the same in every room on the main floor, sticking with similar tones will prevent harsh transitions from one room to the next. Having hardwood floors in your dining room, stone in the entry and tiles in the kitchen will work together if they are all similar tones.

Accents & Décor

Accents and décor such as window treatments may be small and not as noticeable as wall colour and flooring may be, but little details can really tie the space together. For example, if you have red accent pillows on your sofa, incorporate a red rug into your dining or living room.
