Hi! Thanks for taking emails! I need help with my open living rm. layout. I attached a rough floor plan of the room and how it lays out with the adjacent rooms. The only furniture I've purchased for this room is a coffee table (38x38) and an end table (24x24). We'd like to have a tv area in this room (don't have the tv yet but we'd get minimum of 32"). Please let me know what other information you need to make a suggestion. Thanks again! I've spent hours on an online room layout program and don't like what I've come up with, so your help is really appreciated!
Answer Wow, what a great floor plan! You can do a lot with this space! What do you want the primary function of the room to be? You mentioned getting a TV, will you be doing anything else in the space? Some great pieces of course would be a sofa and possibly 2 chairs. The chairs (over a loveseat) would give you great flexibility, especially if you get 2 of the same chairs. They can be separated, or pushed together for a love seat look. What are you thinking to house the TV? An armoire is a great piece with a lot of flexibility as well. I would try positioning the TV in the bottom right corner facing into the room. You might want to try a sofa across from it. This would direct the traffic flow from the foyer, around the living room seating area. Then add a chair to either side. You could add a sofa table or cabinet behind the sofa if you need additional storage. A tall tree in the top right corner would look great. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good Luck and enjoy your beautiful room!
