Thanks anniau, that's great advice.

I will be in touch again for further advice re. The furniture placement.

The hearth I am still stuck on, we went looking today but I'm none the wiser. As I've mentioned before I'm not very good at visualizing I have to see some images to make up my mind.

I can't seem to find any images that I like or even remotely to suit our room.
We want the room cosy kind country and I fear a black hearth might be too cold or won't suit. But again I won't know until I see it on a picture

I can see your point about the coldness or heaviness of a black hearth and CDRs concerns about the coal dust dirtying the stone.
Maybe you could mock up the fireplace and hearth with some fabric in the right colours and see what it looks like with the floor.
From recollection your floor is a shiny tile. It might need a rug to make the seating area cosy in winter. That would give your some options to work in some colour. Or even move in the table from your sitting room if it suited the room style.

Lets say the TV is on that left wall, how would you set up furniture?

If TV is on the left wall, I would try a sofa facing it on right side of fireplace and two side chairs facing the sofa (flanking TV) on the left side of the fireplace. I would include a side table between the chairs and a coffee table between the chairs and sofa. This assumes the sizes and placement would have nothing blocking the TV from viewing from the sofa. Also, I think there's enough room to not have the furniture against the wall. Good luck!

Thank you guys so much! I will definitely take all these into consideration! majority of the furniture is large and this really stinks to have the smallest room in the house. I would love to paint the panal. my family kept telling me not to pull it off because we don't know what's behind it...The house was built in the 40s..smh. I definitely will look into all of these and find a loft bed that has stairs that my dog can climb!

Your kitchen is very beautiful. A nice diagonal tile with a mural above stove would add the finishing touch. There are examples on Houzz under photos.
