Use transom and sidelight windowsThis Bellevue Hill home in Sydney uses a sophisticated series of internal French doors to ‘borrow’ light from adjacent rooms. Designed by Luigi Rosselli Architects and Decus Interiors, the transom windows (which crown the tops of the French doors) and the sidelight windows (which flank either side of the door openings) more than double the aperture and maximise the amount of light that travels from room to room.Sidelight windows, transom windows and fanlights (which also sit above doorways and are arched or elliptical) can usually be retrofitted with relative ease.

Opt for panelled and French doorsWhile you’re choosing panelled cabinetry, remember to do the same for your doors. These elegant French doors in Sydney’s Bellevue Hill are crowned with decorative timber fretwork, which enriches the home with timeless charm. Decus Interiors’ clever use of glass (as opposed to solid panelled doors) divides the rooms while letting natural light pour through.

What about moving the round copper table to the family room and getting a big rectangle coffee table for the great room.

Glass doors and transoms divide the space but keep the rooms light and bright
