Bunny training, any suggestions?

Currently, my buns are confined to their condo, when I'm not home. When I am home, they're allowed to roam free around my room. I want to start letting them roam the living room as well, but I don't want them to run off and hide because it takes a lot of effort to get them out from under the couch, behind furniture, etc, etc, I was thinking about getting them harnesses (sp?) to maybe get them use to the new area and also, to get them to use a litter box when in such area.

is this a good idea? for the most part, they're well behaved buns but they tend to go a little nuts and get excited when I give them more running space, i do think they need more space to play and I know my mom would enjoy having them with her sometimes when she's in the kitchen/living room.

See, I thought about NIC panels but the problem is that I don't have enough of them and my couch would look ugly with those around it because it's kinda liften off the floor and the buns fit under it.. so.. it's a nightmare to get them out...
I've heard about clicker training, but I've never considered it, does it really work? is it difficult to teach?
yeah, I also want to get them use to this so I can take them out, but they get really scared when they go outside, I read in a rabbit book that you don't really wanna take indoor rabbits out because they could die if they're not use to the temp. change.
