What to do with this fireplace?
January 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi. This living room is killing me! It's long and narrow. The fireplace is not used, I currently have cheapo shelving on either side. I tried floating my big sofa in the center of the room, but my sons throw themselves on it, which scratches the floors. So the floors are safer with no floating furniture. However, my current arrangement isn't' conducive to gathering. I'd also like to minimize the presence of the fireplace, which I tried to do by painting it the same color as the walls. So, any advice on what to do with Fireplace or seating arrangements would be appreciated.
