Recently, J decided that he wanted to rearrange our living room. I think he initially had this idea because our large TV stopped working (and it wasn’t even very old- it’s a Vizio, by the way!) and so we have a bit of a smaller TV downstairs. Since I wasn’t in love with our old lay out, I told him to have at it. So last night he started moving things around.
Here’s what it used to look like (picture the sectional a bit longer with one additional piece in it) :And here’s what it currently looks like:You’ll note that we once again removed a piece from the sectional which currently resides in our office.I do feel like it opens the room up a bit more and I like that our windows are no longer covered by a couch. The Brown chair is temporary. We recently inherited it and haven’t decided what the plan is for it. We definitely need to get new (and more child-friendly) blinds.I’d also like to moved the photos over the sofa to the blank space on the other wall: But the area that I’m really struggling with in this room is the TV:I’m not loving how the media able is fitting there, it just looks odd and kind of squished in there. To be honest, I also don’t really love the media table and side tables anymore. We got them right after we were married, but they’re just not my style. I can’t decide what to do in that area. Ideally, I’d like to mount the TV on the wall and get rid of the media table altogether. I’m not sure if we put a side table or some sort of furniture piece that is a bit taller and not as wide.
So I thought I’d ask the lovely people of the Internet for their expert opinions.
What should we do about this corner of the room? Does this new layout work?
