We have a reclining sofa in front of our TV; I never watch sitting up straight with my feet on the floor. So with my feet up and my head back, I need our TV to be higher than average.

Ohhh the joys of having a fireplace. There are plenty of benefits to having a fireplace in your home- there are favorite amenities that many buyers consider a real plus when searching for a new home. Really no other type of heating appliance offers the kind of cozy warmth that you can only get from a fire. Whether you have an open hearth, wood stove, or a pellet stove or even a fireplace insert you can watch the magic of a fire dancing around as the outside cold melts away. Fireplaces offer a cheerful place to gather around wonderful crackling flames with loved ones or friends. It's a great spot to pull up your favorite chair and nestle in to read a good book, or play board games in front of. And let's not forget the romantic setting a fireplace can create. Grab your loved one and your favorite glass of wine and settle in for a dreamy escape from the real world without having to leave your home. Here's to the winter months and a warm spot for snuggling.

Great ideas and comments. I salute people who use their living rooms, if a tv over the mantle is the only available spot go for it. Any room that the maids can skip, because it is never used, is a waste of space.
