Designing around corner fireplace

Katie KeigJune 22, 2014
My husband and I are remodeling the house that he purchased a decade ago. One of the challenges that we are facing is designing around our massive fireplace. We are thinking that we would like to rebuild the built ins- having them join up with the fireplace. Does anyone ideas for a clever way to do this so it looks like it has purpose and design thought? Unfortunately, the TV is sorta the center point of this room and the wall that it's on now is visible from the kitchen. So, that paired with glare from windows- it seems to be the best wall for a tv. Should we just build the millwork so it sits up flush to the fireplace? I'd love to hear y'all's thought.

Another problem in this room is furniture layout. We are thinking that we will buy all new furniture for this room (YAY!!) so existing is irrelevant.

Thank you!

If we ignore it, eventually it will drop so low in the posts that it won't be noticed. I've not found a way to delete them myself. Just better to keep focused on the original one so comments are in one spot.
