How to Arrange Dining Room Turned Living Room?

Good Questions

Q: Our new house has small rooms downstairs. We won't be using the dining room that often, and we think it would be better used as living room/den/spot for movie watching. It's right next to the eat in kitchen and could be cozier for the winter. The question is, what style of couch should we be looking at? And where should we position the few things we will have in there? I am leaning towards a small sectional.

The room is 12 by 13 feet. There is a closet on one wall, and a floor grate for heat. We don't really feel like blocking the largest blank wall, as it creates a nice path through the rooms.

Thanks!
