Arrange furniture in family room

How do I arrange a sofa, recliner, and overstuffed chair with a square chest coffee table in a family room with a fireplace (TV above) on the end wall, two large windows taking up one wall parallel with a blank wall on the other side and the forth side opens up to the eating area and kitchen. The arrangement we have now don't really work for watching TV.

Hi jodeyl! You have a beautiful space.

One thing you can do is move everything 90 degrees to the left - so the two chairs will move to either side of the fireplace & the couch will be opposite the fireplace. You can then put a table behind the couch so you are not just looking at the back of the couch from the kitchen.

Unless you want to move the tv?

The way you furniture is layout is not ideal for watching tv. What are the measurements of all your furniture? and dimensions of you room?

Conversation would be enhanced if those were swivel chairs. I'd want them as front row seats on either side angled toward TV/FP. Then span the room with the sofa floating in the center at about the spot where the nearest chair is in the photo. Sofa table behind it. Low credenza with art above on the sofa's former wall.

You have just been given some great fresh new ideas. How about new furniture that will fit the space.
