Courtney sent us a good question: Hello, I've seen other posts for layouts and am hoping that the AT community could help me with one that is leaving me stumped. Our new living room is a generous 23x13 feet, has a fireplace centered between two windows, french doors, and a wide opening from the entry. My problem is being able to have the TV in the space while still allowing for flow into the office through the french doors...

I would also like to be able to have more than one zone in the space, and putting the TV above the fireplace is not an option (my husband and I both dislike the look of it and I don't think the 1919 walls of the house would support it), the current owners pushed everything to the walls and put the TV to the left of the fireplace and in front of a window, I think the space could be better served. Thanks for your help.
