Two-level living room makes impossible to decorate

RossannaFebruary 17, 2013
Dear Houzzers
My living room has become a challenge. It is a two level, but the step cuts the living area too small. I want to be able to arrange furniture to "straddle" both areas -living room and veranda/dining room, so I have enough space and the space is more inviting. My style is rather modern/contemporary and I have two little kids, so comfort is of essence. Current sofa HAS to go, is just too big and bulky!
Hoping you can help!!

I would turn sofa to face the back of dining area, sofa facing bar, you would have a pathway thru there, put sofa over where the green item is, or replace sofa with a nice recline angled at TV and another comfortable chair

Tks Ann. If I were to place sofa there, it will stick out all the way past the TV - is a very deep sofa.

Oops.....sounds like a replacement is due, wish you the best with that, recliner, or club chair with ottoman

How deep are the stairs.....could you remove the back legs of the sofa and sit it on the bottom step?

Can you move the living area to the dining area? Put the table by the wall that has the TV on now. I can't see what is behind the sofa or how big the dining area is so not sure this is possible.
