First of all, do not use furniture which is too tall or heavy (cabinets, shelving and folding screens); opt instead for “lighter solutions” such as rugs or low-level furniture.
Next, choose light colours in order to create a glowing and bright room.
Another issue you need to consider is overall stylistic coherence, so that all areas interact with each other.
If you want to be daring, you should be aware that classic and modern, minimalist and rustic can co-exist very effectively in the same room, provided that they are combined wisely and are not used exclusively in one area.
For example, if choosing a classic and contemporary style kitchen, you can indulge yourself by placing both classic elements (such as other cupboards with framed doors) and modern accessories (a glass table, designer chairs, etc.) in other areas of the room.
