Last week I met with a client who has a long, rectangular sitting room that she doesn’t know what to do with. This is not the first time that I’ve been asked to help a client with a room like this. So often these long rooms have multiple entrances, fireplaces and windows which can make furniture planning a nightmare. Throw in the need for a large TV and it can drive most people bonkers!
We have recently completed a project at a Cotswolds home where we designed a rectangular living room to create a comfortable and relaxing space. Make sure you have a look at our portfolio for pictures of this project for inspiration!
I have drawn up some layouts below, all for the same room which show the various ways that the space can be utilised. Scroll down to see our top tips for how to create a layout that makes the most of your space.
