hello ! what sort of shape room is it ?! theres a cheat sheet here that may help ?! http://pinterest.com/pin/440930619739419195/ it's quite ok to 'float ' your furniture away from the walls to create a seating arrangement if you want to !
It's a sort of L shaped but the return in quite short, I think that'd be a good place for a desk and book shelves. The wall isn't long enough for the sofa as the door is there, could a sofa be half away from the wall? It would be facing the fireplace. I wish I knew how to draw a plan and I could show you.
tee hee !! well if I'm not on MN I should pick up an email as comes through on my phone - which seems to be surgically attached !!! lol ! sounds like a good plan to add a desk in somewhere ! always useful !
Hi - you are so lucky I don't like watching football - hubby is watching and this is the only warm room - but he's not noticed I've been playing with your layout instead of watching too ! Lol ! Here's a link to two possibles ! Hope you like them ! pinterest.com/pin/440930619739617961/
The best palace to get custom sized rugs is any carpet warehouse type outlet - ask them to whip the egdes of remnant into a rug ! The one I dew was 4mx3m - so room remnant size ! And they are cheap enough to go for light colours and simply replace every couple of years !!!
