Please help me turn this into an amazing family room!
Hi, We just moved into this house, and I am having trouble with this room. It's in the centre of the house and it is never used other than to walk to the kitchen or dining area. I would like a cosy informal living area, where we could either watch tv or have a coffee & still have space for playing & toys. I have several problems (mostly layout):
1) TV is in current position because of the aerial, but means people will be walking right in front of the TV. Where else could it go?
2) I hate the sofa (old ikea karlstad) & I am unsure of what furniture to get before the layout is sorted out. It's also too far away from the TV, but blocks the door if any closer. TV bench and chair don't have to stay.
3) Factors that make layout difficult (for me anyway): two doorways in the corner and open plan dining/kitchen makes it hard to put anything in there without blocking something. Gas hob is behind sofa (would be good if this was accessible to use a heater).
