Narrow space and position of fireplace wrecks havoc with tv and furniture placement
I have only 6' from the sofa to the wall. The open "pit" above the fireplace would make the (future) TV too high (without hurting your neck) so I'm tempted to rip out the 4'9 high platform/shelf and the fireplace and install a large electric fireplace & consul and mount the TV above it. My current fireplace is gas, but its in the wrong place in my opinion and makes it difficult for furniture placement. Does anyone have any better ideas please?
