Q: I live in a 650 square foot condo that's essentially one long rectangle comprising the den area, kitchen, and living/dining room, with a bedroom tacked on to the side. There are no walls between the den, kitchen, and living/dining spaces. Right now, I have a desk in the "den" area, a dining table in the kitchen, and typical living room furniture in the living area. 

I feel like I'm not making good use of my space since there's nothing in the "in between" areas. I suppose the related problem is that there's not a lot of wall space either. Any suggestions for how to best use the space?
