Small awkward "L" shaped living/family dining room combo. Help needed!!!
December 1, 2012 in Design Dilemma
Hi my name is Ashley and boy do I have a design dilemma! I live in a 1965 single family home with a semi open floor plan. Here are my dilemmas: front door opens into the middle of my living room, a small dining/ living room combo, a broken fireplace, an awkward corner, and an old school wall heater that is in the way. My front door opens right into the living/family room so there is not a defined entry into the house. Our family/living room feels like two space because of the front door. The family/living room flows into the dining room making an "L" shape. Our fireplace is broken so I tried to repaint it and stick some candles in there but I did not really achieve the look I was going for. I have a wall heater and an awkward corner that prevents how I can place my furniture. I think I need help making defined "zones" in my house and I think my issue furniture is furniture placement. Can anyone please offer suggestions?????
