Help!! Furniture Setup in Family Room
April 8, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need to figure out the best way to arrange the furniture in my family room. A television will be mounted on the wall opposite to the window with a tv unit below (200 cm in width). I would like to have a good amount of seating (at least 5-6 seats) whether it be with a sofa, loveseat, armchair and/or sectional sofa combination. There's also a fireplace in the center of one of the full walls.

My biggest obstacle is the opening between the dinette area (kitchen table area) and the family room of 11'3". Any loveseat or sectional would block this opening, leaving but a small amount of space to actually walk into the family room. I am not sure how much space should typically be left open to walk into a family room.

The combinations I have tried with the furniture I am interested in only leaves between 2-3 feet of open space to talk into the family room.

3 feet of space is the minimum for accessing a room.
