Looking for a solution to a long narrow living room
I am hoping to get some help with a layout for my rectangular living room. The long wall is about 20 feet long and the short wall 14 feet. Along one of the long walls is floor to ceiling windows and the front door. Along the other is a fireplace with the TV above it. A floorplan is attached.
I wanted to place the TV on the short wall, however I think the furniture arrangement would be too awkward. I am currently thinking about leaving the TV on the fireplace and changing the fireplace to integrate the TV better, similar to this:
But if I do this, I am concerned with wasted space behind the smaller couch (the pinball is there now but will be moved to a game room). Any ideas? Should I keep the TV above the fireplace or move it to another place. Any help is appreciated.
