To divide or not to divide...

Do you recommend a divider of some kind between foyer and livingroom? Right now all there is between the two is different flooring. The livingroom is 17x12 and the foyer is about 6x12, so it looks like one 23x12' room. I think the rooms are too small to put something there, and there's really not much room to walk into the livingroom already since the loveseat is on an angle (works best that way), but what are your thoughts? Thanks to anyone who responds.

Hi Elainetmom,
It is hard to visualize without a photo.  I saw this bookshelf online and thought it might suit your space without taking up too much room.  Could be practical too.  Could you also divide the space with a bench perhaps with wicker baskets underneath?   It would look good from both sides.  We had a similar layout in our old house and it always made me crazy to see everything in the front entrance!
