7) Always in terms of furnishings. Focus on one important piece (the full-wall bookcase, a large corner sofa) that becomes the focal point of the entire living room.
8) Make the various functional areas that make up the living stand out by dividing them, for example, with a rug that defines an area. You will almost have the impression that there are more rooms.

Try then to concentrate a color that can be noticed (for example the blue) to a single wall, including the door. The effect is guaranteed, without penalizing the amplitude effect.
