Narrow livingroom

16x 22 boring 1950s cape/ranch. Large window. Cannot figure out a solution to accommodate guest.

It's a little hard to tell from your picture what the rest of your seating looks like. We too have a very narrow living room. Something that helped for us was having one of the chairs be a swivel chair. They're made in a lot of styles but the one here is an example. This way the chair can face the TV or be turned toward the other furniture for conversation.

Loveseat and the the door is behind it. Wasted space. Was thinking of moving tv by the door. Wish the would sell small pieces at our furniture store, cannot find a nice selection of small pieces, everything is oversized.

Would it be possible to centre your tv on the wall with the mirror then bring your furniture in a bit closer into a grouping? It appears to me that this room is used a lot for tv viewing. By creating a grouping with the tv to the side of the furniture grouping it could also be a cozy conversational area. Yes, swivel chairs would help accommodate an alternate arrangement. Table that is under the window could go at the back of the sofa.....

I had an idea, I went to Home Depot bought a cable tv extension and connector and moved my tv to the opposite end and L shaped my couch and loves eat. Made the room much bigger
