Best Living Room Layout for Zurich Rental?

Good Questions

Pin it button big

Q: I live in a rented flat in Zurich, Switzerland. The living room has an odd shape, no doors and connects directly to the kitchen and hallway. When I moved in I just put the furniture I already had the best way I could, but I feel like the current layout just doesn't feel right.

Also, it isn't very practical to entertain guests. I am now redecorating the flat and want to to replace some the furniture. The only things that I plan to keep are the armchair, the ottoman, the wooden side table and the sideboard steps. I was wondering if anyone can give suggestions on how to set up the room to make the best out of this space?

A few considerations - I cannot paint the walls or hang anything heavy on the walls. I cannot block the space bellow the windows. The TV should be take as little space and attention as possible (I would move it somewhere else, but this is the only connection available). If possible, I would like to have a better separation between the kitchen and the living area.
