Decorating & Furniture/Long Thin Living Room
Help please I have recently moved to Chalreston and my new living room is not Inviting. It is 30 x 12 . Both "ends" are completely covered in Windows and the long wall has a fireplace that is not centered in the 30 feet length. There is 5 feet of wall space on one side and 19 feet of wall space on the other. The Opposing 30 feet wall has large open door ways on both ends leaving only an 18 feet solid wall across from the fire place, I have tried the furniture in many ways and nothing feels right. I am to the point of buying all new furniture but have no idea what. Couches? Love seats? I would be grateful for any ideas.
I would recommend splitting the area into a minimum of two areas.
Say one at the fireplace end and then another area as perhaps a game area, or reading area.
I envision the fireplace as a gathering place with friends and family with conversation.
The other area for games or reading would be ideal.
I have a picture on my website of a long narrow room that I actually made into three areas for a homeowner.
Please don't go out and buy new furniture.
I'm certain you have the right items, just not the right layout.
Let me know how you do with this.
Thanks for checking in.
