difficult to picture! but you can get extra long cables that you could run round the skirting which would allow you to reposition the TV?

we have a bedroom with similar issues, am getting quotes to move the radiator as atm it is behind a chest of drawers ( can only assume that nobody had clothes in the 1970s when the house was built!)

could you put a nice radiator cover over radiator and make a feature of it, maybe mirror over t or nice picture.Make it a focal point to distract from tv.

Obv I don't know how big your room is but the first thing that strikes me is that maybe you have too much furniture? Is it possible to do without one of the armchairs and the footstool? then the sofa can go on the plain wall (which is where I assumed you meant it had to go) and one armchair could go (maybe diagonally) in the corner where the french doors are.

Think there is a website where you can draw floor plans and move furniture around - will try to find it...

Go to the 3D room design bit in the design your home section

If you're restricted by the position of the telly (and that seems to be what's bothering you the most), I'd agree with Risingstar about running cabling round the skirtings.

Put the telly in its ideal spot and work from there.

Or you could get a cupboard to hide it in when no one's watching.

I do love my deco
I designed my living room using it and am so so delighted with the result

No ideas on yours sorry- too mcuh trouble picturing it, but would like to see your 3D render if you do it

Heres mine -lounge

Thanks Ruby, I love my living room now, it was so horrid and crowded before, but I struggled to invisage it

Re name etc, Nah, not worried about that at all, but thank you for letting me know- that could have been awkward smile
