Do you know the dimensions of the living room... How wide is this room to accommodate the bookcases and furniture. Do you think a living room which is 11 feet wide by 20 feet long is too awkward. I'm thinking of widening my narrow kitchen so it would make the living room narrower. Thanks!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
In general, a room that's twice as long as it is wide is going to be awkward - but without knowing specifics it's impossible to determine whether it's something that's workable from a furnishing standpoint.
