I have a dilemma for arranging furniture in my living room. The dimensions are 22 x 13. However I have two windows 7ft tall by 9 ft wide, on two connecting walls and then an opening to the dining room. I have a couch, loveseat, and one chair.

I think you need to acquire more furniture in order to make conversation areas, moving the furniture out from the walls and creating areas such as TV watching with the sofa, chair and coffee table, game or card area with a small table and chairs, or a reading area with a comfy chair, end table, and floor lamp. Fill in with plants and benches can take the place of chairs, also. Look on Craigslist, lots of people are moving and will sell cheap rather than haul it.

There is a website that I always use when I want to rearrange the furniture in our apartment. You have to sign up for it, but it is free to use. www.floorplanner.com is the site.
I will say you should actually measure each piece of furniture to make it as accurate as possible because you can change the size/shape of the furniture on the site.

I need help with a family room that is 13 x 20. The one long wall has a built in bookcase, fireplace and door. The wall opposite of this is a 6' double hung window and a set of french doors (that lead to a sun room) on either end of the wall. On the 2 shorter walls, one has a door entering to the kitchen and the wall opposite of this has a built in bar and closet. There is a 37" flat screen TV in the room. There is currently a sofa, love seat, recliner, coffee table, and end table in the room. Can anyone please help me arrange this room? Thank you.

I need help placing furniture in a 7 foot wide by 16 foot long living room with windows to the floor on the 16 foot wall. There is no wall across from the windows, but it opens into the hallway and kitchen. There is a 7 foot wall before entering the hallway and the other end is open to the front door.
