Need help with furniture placement in family room
July 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just moved and are trying to get the best layout for our new family room. I originally thought of putting the TV over the fireplace (it's a working fireplace), but my husband said 'absolutely no!' so we ended up with this configuration. I feel like the sectional sofa cuts off half of the room, and I wish we could put the u-shaped sofa in the inlet area of the room, and the TV beside the fireplace infront of the bookcase- but that would be tight for the TV, and we'd have to get new connections there (no big deal). I need ideas on how to arrange the sofa and TV in this room because I am not sure this is the best set up. Ideas? What would you do? Picture shows what it looks like coming down into the room, and each side of the room view.
