Should the TV and the couch not face each other? We have a living room which we are trying to decorate and am facing a dilemma where for the correct viewing distance, the couch and the TV will be on adjacent walls not facing each other. any other way will reduce the viewing distance. Is this arrangement uncomfortable?

yes, but if the television is there, then it is quite uncomfortable to see it for a long time correct? I keep seeing the pictures of homes which have a seating arrangement like this one and think that it is mainly for conversations. But if we have a family house, where someone or the other is alway watching television, won't this be kinda uncomfortable?

I prefer this arrangement. It allows me to lounge or lay down on the couch and watch the tv easily, because it's beyond my feet. If it's directly across from me, I have to crane my neck, or watch tv sitting up.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If possible, put a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf behind the sound system and in front of it. In other words, on each end of the room. This will create ideal uneven surfaces for optimal absorption and diffusion. Add acoustic panels. Emmi says the best solution for sound quality would be to start from the ground up before construction or during a remodel and install acoustic panels behind the sheetrock, or as insulation. You can purchase acoustic panels to install on your walls, but Emmi says they're not very aesthetically pleasing. “Acoustic panels are a hard sell,” he says. “They tend to dominate the space unless they’re being designed into the room with cedar panels or something.” Read more about sound absorbers
Design With Science added this to Set the Right Mood With the Right Lines
Mix straight lines and curves. We’re talking about the relative proportion of how varying lines appear in a space. You don’t want strictly one or the other. All curves: You feel like you’ve fallen into a cartoon for toddlers. All straight lines: A futuristic living-in-the-machine type horror movie comes to mind. So a good mix is ideal. Straight and curvy lines are mixed in this space, so it works as a family room.
