A little over a month ago, hubs and I purchased our first home, here in Florida. It’s been a whirlwind of renovations, big purchases (and even bigger decisions!) but we’re on our way to getting ready to move in next month and I think it will FINALLY sink in that we’re homeowners.
I’ve had a few people on Instagram and twitter ask if I’ll be blogging about the renovations and moving process, and to be honest, I keep going back and forth about it…but as I continue to debate the idea, I thought I’d share a recent interior design quandary.
You see, one of the nicest features of the house is the very open feel; but with that benefit, is a bit of a challenge. I could try to describe the issue, but I think pictures might help more:
This is the main living area – front doors in the first image, large sliding doors leading to the pool on the opposite side of the room, and the fireplace in the middle (the dining area is on the other side of the fireplace), and the new kitchen is going in where you see the new drywall installed in the third picture.
Other vital info:
- Our living room furniture consists of one couch and one recliner, and we plan on purchasing a large throw rug (floors are also being upgraded to wide plank darker hardwood).
- We have a 55 inch flat screen TV.
I am trying to figure out the best options for furniture placement – we currently have a TV stand, but with two “walls” of the room being windows/doors, there isn’t an “ideal” place to put the TV – or is there?
I’ve gone through a few scenarios – TV on a stand on the wall,TV over the mantle, TV stand to the side of the fireplace, with angled furniture…TV on a new piece of furniture (which would require creative wiring), or…??
What would you do?
