Our house was built in the 1950's and has under gone a few renovations before we purchased. We have a very long living room as soon as you enter in the house. We want it to feel warm and cozy, and avoid a bowling alley feel. We are in the process of purchasing furniture, but are having trouble b/c we don't really know how to set the floor plan. Any ideas on layout would be helpful.
dimensions of the area are 11'4x 25'
wall where the entrance is 5'3 on the right 4,9 on the left
left wall where the hallway is 10'9 (hallway) 10'9 after that
far wall(s) 4'7 hallway to dining room is 6'1, then 2'6
also roof half of it is on exposed beams and the other is not.
