Hello my dear friends,
you have helped me in the past and I keep coming back for more. While I will have some nice "after" pictures of the kitchen you've helped me with, I now need some advice for the living room.
It's a decent sized space, with an arch that separates it in two (but not really). I am struggling even to figure out the best place for the couch. The way the area is divided by the arch, makes one area smaller than the other one (almost as bad as an L-shaped room).
It's the usual colonial we have around here, where I'm not sure if at one point the smaller part of the living room was a porch, or outdoor something that got enclosed at a later date. Or it could be that it was a design flaw from the beginning since a lot of houses around me are like this.
So we originally put the couch and the tv one on front of each other inside the smaller area, which left the bigger area empty and a bit useless.
I hope you can see from the pictures and get an idea. The couch is currently where the picture shows it, inside the smaller area, a bit behind the arch. The problem I have with this is the nice windows behind it that I lose access to. The TV is all the way across the room. I don't know if I should keep it this way. I like that it opens up the space and my daughter has a lot of room to play. Which brings me to my next question, should I buy the matching love seat to position under the other window, at a 90 degree angle from the couch? Or should I go with two armchairs that will leave more room for play?
Any other ideas or suggestions are always welcome.
