Share the Spotlight
In some cases, you may have other features in your living room that call for attention in addition to your fireplace. A big screen television may compete with your fireplace, or a picture window with a lovely view may steal some of the room’s focus. Instead of choosing a single feature to serve as the room’s focal point, let the fireplace share the spotlight. With a television, you can share focus by mounting it on the wall above the fireplace and arranging the seating area around the two. In a large room where you have a window with a stunning view opposite the fireplace, create two seating areas – one facing the fireplace and the other facing the window – so guests can enjoy one or both features depending on the season. In a smaller space, arrange the furniture in parallel lines between the fireplace and the window so you can actually take in both features when sitting on your couch.
