I need help with living space
jazchi
January 13, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have no idea what to do with furniture placement or paint colors. I have a rectangular living area with a corner fireplace. I was thinking about putting the television on the fireplace, but I wasn't sure how that would work. There is not much space to work with on either side of the fireplace. I ordered a sectional, but I had to return it, because it took up most of the space. I am currently waiting for the new sofa, but I would like to add additional seating and other furniture. Please help!! =)

From this angle it looks like the tv won't work well over the fireplace. It is too high. Can it go on the wall to the right? I like the colour of the sectional you chose. A really warm grey would be nice on the walls.

The wall to the right is about a 1ft of wall space before it opens up into the kitchen dining area. The only other wall is across from the fireplace and I couldn't think of a way to make it work.

I love the idea of warm grey. What accent colors would go with the grey and browns?

It looks like there's a TV conncection on the long blank wall in photo 2. I would put the TV there on top of an entertainment console. Did you order the sofa/sectional as shown or the reverse configuration? I would angle the sectional in the room so that it comes out perpendicular to the fireplace. I would add one comfortable chair in front on the windows by the FP, angled toward the TV. Beside it I would place a small table.

Add rug, pillows, and a rectangular coffee table. If there's a floor plug, try to get some lighting near the sectional, plus a floor lamp by the chair.

I love your thoughts thank you! I did order the couch in the configuration shown. It didn't occur to me to angle the couch I had my mind set on it being right in front of the tv. Should I look into getting the opposite configuration?

No, that's the correct configuration for what I had in mind. I take it that there is a TV connection on the wall by the steps?

yes there is, but the receiver is cordless so we are able to move it anywhere. That wall is the most obvious choice; It's just an awkward sport in accordance to the fireplace.

Give it a try. I think it's the best location for the TV.
