Updating a small TV room/den
January 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am trying to make this 11½’ x 13 ½’ bedroom-turned-den brighter and updated. So far I painted the entire room and replaced the old tube TV with a flat screen. I need suggestions for a light fixture (maybe a semi-flush drum shade fixture-what size?), smaller coffee table (what shape?), window treatments and rug. I’m having a hard time finding a rug that is the right size—5 x 7 is too small and 6 x 9 is too big (probably need 6 x 8). I plan on opening the wall behind the TV (there is a staircase behind it) in the near future and moving the TV to another room in the house but would like to update this room for now without spending too much money. I’m stuck! Thanks so much for any suggestions.
