Please help me with my floor plan the space is small and does not function well.
The family room in the back of the house is small as stated 12 x 11 but the back wall is a slider. The right wall is a bar and entry to the kitchen. There is no front wall the staircase is open. Furniture and audio/video placement is crowded and almost impossible.
As suggested by the floor plan the great room is for the formal entry/living and dining room again a small place for a lot of furniture.
About 15 x 21.
I am currently utilizing the family room as a dining room as the furniture fits better there and the great room as a family room which make the entry of my house not very elegant.
But I am looking to remodel/redesign the whole place and would like to move the family room back to that area. One suggestion I had was to close the stairs on that side only to create 2 usable walls in that room but furniture placement is still a problem as the couch placement would be in front of the slider. Suggestions ??
I would like to try to find an elegant functional furniture placement for the spaces as designed with the family room in back and the great room to function as a formal entry/living and dining room.
