Help! Wall sconce placement!
mandaleigh01June 24, 2014
Should I leave the wall sconces as is, or move one to where the clock is and move the clock to another wall? All input is appreciated! Thanks

I would leave the sconces and remove the clock. A better picture of the whole space would also help us to place the clock.

Where would you put the clock, and should I replace anything else where it is?

Would you move the scones closer in to the opening or no?

I would put sconces where clock is. I don't think they add anything where they are.

clock looks a little bit too big for space

I know you only asked about the clock but the whole room has to flow, not just individual objects. I think you can do better with the arrangement here. Now that I see the whole room, have you thought about putting the couch on the TV wall facing into the room and the tv under the opening with just the one bookshelf turned sideways. I feel like the couch is blocking the kitchen. Is there a window opposite? You can use barstools at the kitchen counter that swivel. That wall seems so bare to me even with the tv on it. If you move the couch to that wall, then I would take those two pictures and center them on the couch.

Also if I put the tv in that open space what would I do about the back of it facing into the dining area?

So its a sectional? Now I see the whole space. Swing the whole sectional around facing into the room. I would move the tv to the left of the curtains without the side pieces. You will still be able to see the tv and your guests faces instead of their backs. I would also think about swivel stools for the kitchen under the counter. It looks like you have room for some stools. It costs nothing to move the furniture. You can always move it back.

Can you take a picture from the tv looking into the kitchen? I would then think about two separate chairs facing the couch too once you move it.

That looks like a massive couch to move. Measure it first and see if the tv fits by the window and how much it will stick out without the side shelves and the couch on the tv wall.

I agree - leaving the sconces where they are is best.
