Design challenge, Furniture and tv placement in great room
My challenge is moving from a Condo in town, to live at the Beach. The new Townhome has a great room, instead of where we are now, our rooms are separate, kitchen, and dining room...will now be all in one room. The room is the same size as our current room, but will have ALL of our things in the same room, like dining room table, and kitchen will be overlooking this room also. At present time, we have a very large 72" Flat screen console, although the Tv is 47in. and we also have a 91 inch sofa, and matching loveseat, both off white leather. I want a coastal beachy look..totally dislike modern.
My dilemma ...working all this stuff in there, where to put the TV, and the furniture.Is the 91 n. sofa too large for the room, should we get 2 loveseats instead? Should we get rid of the 72 in console? The townhome is actually larger, but feels smaller because it is all in one room. Bedrooms upstairs are 2 masters. I am attaching pics of our living room NOW, with the furniture we have, and then the town home at the beach which is empty. You will notice, that there is no room for built-ins on each side of the fireplace..the kitchen will also be remodeled, and extended around 14 inches into the same room.
I have been thinking about this for a month, and now we are getting ready to move. HELP??????? As you can see, I took the pictures of the empty great room from all sides, the view of the stairs, and the fireplace. etc. The room is only about 18feet wide X 16 feet deep, another problem.
