Need some help on a living room with a fireplace & Television
We have a small living room - 17ft 4in x 12ft 5in and as you can see in the images, we have both a fireplace and television. We also have a record cabinet. Another consideration is that we have two small children.
Our original plan for this room was just to buy a new couch with a matching chair and some sort of recliner or chair with an ottoman.
We've had a hard time finding recliners we like so I started looking through this site, which sparked a bunch of other thoughts and made us wonder if we shouldn't think about rearranging the room more drastically.
We considered putting the television above the fireplace but after reading more about that decided it's not a good idea for us. We would definitely consider mounting the television on the wall somewhere - as long as it was low enough.
If anyone is willing to give us some advice on this room, we'd greatly appreciate it!
