Q: Hi! I am currently doing up my new house and I thought you all could help me. The first floor layout of the house has a vast common area that all doors open to, and I am at a loss as to how to arrange my furniture in this space. The furniture pieces include two wooden chairs and a conversation chair. I have attached photographs of pieces similar to mine. Besides these, I have a console table and a small side table as well as a rug (8ft x 5ft). The layout diagram (drawn to scale, along with dimensions) has the arrangement that I could best think of, but that leaves a vast open space. So, is there a better way to arrange things?
