Who wants to help me?!

We're in the process of buying a house. I've been thinking of what I want to do once we move in but I am stumped when it comes to the living room. It is just so oddly shaped. Maybe one of you ladies can help me. All I know so far is that I want a red couch/sofa/loveseat. (Whatever will fit better in the room.) The picture I have is small but hopefully you can see it okay.



Okay now to the left is the doorway that leads to the stairs (if you walk straight from the doorway) or if you turn left from the doorway, it's the kitchen. Where I was standing while taking the picture is the doorway that leads to the dining room. To the right is a wall with a window. As you can see all the walls have a window. If I had the money, I'd cover them all and just have one big window right in the front. The only wall without a window is to the left and that's where we were gonna put the TV but then we'd have a glare from the windows. We don't know how to set of the furniture either. I'm so lost in how to design this room. Can anyone help please?!! The closing is supposed to be between the 28th and 30th of this month.


Also, can anyone tell me how to care for these hardwood floors? I like them and don't want to screw them up.

I would put the love seat in front of the double window. I would get 2 chairs and put them on either side of the doorway on the right. Its kinda hard cause I can see the whole room. I would get roll down shades to pull down when the glare is on the tv. the are pretty inexpensive. It almost looks like this is supposed to be a livingroom/ diningroom

Where would you put the TV? I was really interested in one of those big L shaped couches. I wish I had a better picture of the room.

you could do a sectional have the long side go down the left. have the TV at the opposite end or room from double windows

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

Thanks. I'm still iffy about the TV. The doorway opening is kind of wide. I don't think there is enough space on either side of the doorway for it.

It's mostly the doorway leading to the dining room. Very tiny bit of wall or either side. Maybe enough to fit a Christmas tree. Or hang some shelves for pictures.

I was standing in the doorway that leads to the dining room. There's a tiny bit of wall on both sides but I don't think it's enough for a TV.
