Would very much appreciate advice from those with experience of clever room layout!
Around 10 months ago we bought a Victorian semi, and now we're trying to work out what furniture to place in the living room. An annotated plan of that room is below; we now have alcove cupboards and floating shelves either side of the fireplace on the west wall,.
In a perfect world, we would find a sofa that curves to fit the bay window gap, and then have an armchair in the southeast corner. A flatscreen TV would go on the north wall. The problem we're facing is that bay window sofas appear to be ruinously expensive; we're then looking at a normal sofa, but will have a gap between the bay window and the sofa, and the sofa will extend further into the room.
Have we missed an idea that could work? Any suggestions gratefully received...
