There is no law that says the tv must be above the fireplace.

I think I would do exactly what you are suggesting. I would have the long part of the sectional against the wall on the right with the ” L” piece at the kitchen end.

I would also get two chairs that swivel to place on either side of the fireplace, so they can be used to curl up facing the fireplace  or turned around to make a conversation area with the sectional.

Add a square glass coffee table, smaller tables in the corners near the chairs, and a large area rug. I would probably place a floor lamp at the corner of the “L” sectional , and possibly even behind the chair that would be on the right, and a table lamp on the left.

GORGEOUS Kitchen !!

I don’t have much right now to add in regards to your LR / FR… other than it sounds like julies1949:  has some great ideas.

So here are a few other tips…

1- Look online for a room planning program, there are some FREE ones out there… you can put in the dimensions of the room, openings etc, for the floor plan and then effectively figure out a workable furniture plan.

2- There are Decorating Websites that can tell you the regular sizes of items, and how much room is needed for work / walk arounds (ie reclining chairs are so much sitting still… and so much bigger a foot print reclined)

3- Some of these Websites will also allow you to work with a colour palatte, so you can SEE what the finished room might actually look like (or close to)

4- Whatever you do, makesure that whatever sofa and larger pieces you buy ACTUALLY FIT into your house.  I’ve had a home where we had to take the front door off the hinges to get a large item in (think it was a 32 or 34 inch wide door… so not teeny tiny)

Hope this helps,

LOVE the sectional idea, will fill the space perfectly and they are so cozy and inviting! The kitchen looks great, by the way.
