Need help arranging furniture in living/family room
steelinkMarch 6, 2014
I would like to get rid of the entertainment center and get a flat screen television. Where to put it? Plan to use wall shelves (floating) on large wall where entertainment center now is. How best to arrange seating? Additional seating somewhere also?

A bump is the same as a comment. It keeps your post active so other posters can maybe help.

Sorry, steelink, I read your dilemma the other night and couldn't think of anything helpful for you. Condomary is correct - I posted the bump comment just to try and keep your dilemma active. I figured sooner or later someone with fresh eyes would come along and help you!

Why not out the tv over the fireplace. Looks like enough room there for a good sized one. Then just redirect your seating to turn to the left a little bit.

Do u have a floor plan? Where the entry way, and I see bar stools. Is there a kitchen? You want to place furniture so it flows into the next room and the there should be color that connects the two rooms. U can always get the tv on the well. Not sure if you were planning in that. I

I think you are missing the opportunity to make the fireplace the focal point. How do you use this room? How many people do you need to seat at one time?

This is our living/family room. It's where we live. We never use the fireplace-it came with the house. It is open to the kitchen/eating area as one big room. We average 3-4 seating at one time. The entry door (which no one uses is opposite the windows with a large foyer. This end of the room is also where access to the bedrooms, bathrooms and secondary entry for the kitchen, laundry and garage.

These are photos if you would just paint the entertainment center white. The 3rd is an idea for the floating shelves- they could look really amazing. Even if the fireplace is never used it is so pretty. I would love to see the artwork to the right of the entertainment center over the FP. Do you use the two chairs the most for sitting? If so i would face those towards the TV, together with a table between them. Then face the sofa perpendicular to the TV facing the back window. Showhome 2010 - 2 Tree Section Residence Small Wonder

I rarely suggest this, but since you don't use the FP it will seem like a wasted feature in the room if you don't do something with it. How about putting the TV above it and then turning the sofa parallel to it with the other two flanking the sofa as they do now. With better pix of the other furniture pieces you have, better suggestions may come forth. Comment here and use the Attach Images button to add more pix.

I love the idea about painting the unit white or just doing the shelves. I like the idea of furniture placement too, which is what I was asking for. Thanks again.
