From Drab To Fab: Day 4–Floor Planning

On Monday, I spent several hours moving furniture around–to no avail.  Since our living room and dining room are in an open L shaped room with an off-center window and what I call a “hanging wall,” arranging furniture is not so easy.  So finally I gave up and measured every single wall and every piece of furniture.  I recorded all of my measurments on a notepad in my lovely chicken scratch writing that only I can read–or so says my kids.

After lunch I sat at my computer for at least an hour trying to create the floorplan on Urban Barn Icovia.  Then I spent the next two hours arranging furniture on my new floorplan.

I came up with 3 options to choose from.

I'm really not liking this one--even though it is a mimic of one I saw on a designer's website

I like this one a lot better, but not too keen on the end tables

I like this one the most, but am concerned about the flow into the dining area--and I have to take out my dining table extension for everyday dining.

I really am torn between Option 2 and Option 3. So like I usually do when I can’t make up my mind–I put it to a vote on facebook!

The Tally so far (just before bed 08/12)

Option One:  0

Option Two:  3

Option Three:  3

I’m “sleeping” on it until Friday.

Which one do you like? Vote here or on my Facebook page!
