Arrangement Ideas For Room with No Focal Point?

Good Questions

Q: Our living room has been a big challenge for us — it's very large, but has no central focal point. As the attached floor plan illustrates, the room itself is quite large and square. The front door opens up to a view of our fireplace (which is at a 45-degree angle) and our bedroom door. The other side of the room has a large window and an open entrance to our small sun room/office. How can we make the best use of this space?
