Decorating & Furniture/Decorating a Long Family Room
hope you can help me. I am stumped about how to put together the furniture in my family room. It is 15' x 22'. On one short wall is a sliding glass door to the back yard. On the other short wall is the door to the garage. On one long wall is a fireplace, flanked by built in bookcases on the top. On the other wall is open - to the kitchen, and a doorway to the hall.
If I put a couch facing the fireplace, there is no comfortable place to put the TV. But if I put the TV on the one available wall, the rest of the furniture is bunched up in half of the room. I am also thinking about taking the bookcases out, because I don't really need additional shelving. It has dark beams across the ceiling, and if I take out the shelves, I am not sure if the beams are stained at the ends, so I may end up with a problem matching them.
Here are some photos. Do you have any suggestions?
as per the pic.
behind the sofa i see a rack. just next to it is your computer, If I would say that is an apt place to keep your TV. your furnitures would then be facing that side, with your 3 seater just opposite to where it is right now(facing the TV) and the 1 seater would be on the left of it.
For this you may have to move ur computer to a diff location. And removing the rack above the fireplace would be a good idea. You may go for it.Instead put a painting there. Wendy Incase you have a wall TV then please revert. There are some better ideas for that.
