Can't figure out best way to place 2 sofas and tv in family room.

teremaryDecember 2, 2012
I just moved into a house with a family room that has coral fireplace in the corner of the room. I want to keep my 2 sofas I bought a year ago but how do I place in this room with awkward layout?

Put the couches in a L layout.

The problem is that bar area makes it tight in there.

You need to move couches over near fireplace to incorporate this into your focal point.

HI -- The sofa that is shown on the right , swing that around to face the TV /fireplace wall making the L shape with the other sofa that houssaon said. See if that works for you.

I have a great room with two sofas. I made two seating areas with the sofas in the middle of the room. One facing fireplace and the other facing a tv cabinet. A lamp table is placed between the sofas. I don't know how large your room is, but this as worked great for us.

It is a panoramic because wanted to show the opening from one side and the fireplace in the corner is sliding glass door next to it. The problem is that you can not move the sofa closer to the tv and there is not a lot of room on the other side either to put the couch facing the tv. Someone had suggested putting the tv on the wall where the opening is and moving it down that way in L shape and then creating another little sitting area in front of the fireplace. I wasn't sure how that would work though.

Fireplaces are always the focal point in a room so it is best to try and orient the TV that direction so both can be enjoyed. Use khype3's layout but pull it back enough that the TV can go to the left of the FP. Put your ladder shelves in two different places - one where the keyboard is, the other in the space between window and door under the trapezoid upper window. Keyboard can go on the empty wall to the left of the picture. Later you might try a game/snack table and chairs there.
