Placing a prominent object or piece of furniture in the back of the room to attract the eye is a decoration trick for long rooms
Notice how the sofas and the rug that accompanies their lengths create a compact space in the long room. Some parts of the wall painted in a more prominent color also help to break the stretch of the place. The dining table set aside is decisive for integrating 2 environments into one. The coffee table fills and gives the final finish.
You can use bookshelves to decorate the long room and place a personalized space at the bottom of the room, such as an office space.
Another tip for decorating long rooms is to use long furniture mixed with smaller furniture.

The carpet with warm colors and stripes in the narrowest sense also diminishes the ambience.
Using frames and more than one rug to share rooms in the same room are also good bets.
