In this post, I’m discussing further thoughts on the furniture placement in my designer house sunroom.
Once I decided to focus my seating area to the right of the room, and orient my rug straight out from the kitchen steps, I thought about how to place the other furnishings I’d like to include.
So I turned my thoughts to opening up the center of the room, and doing something more interesting and unique with the floorplan. Why not try a diagonal placement, I asked myself?
This would allow those seated to still enjoy views to the outside, while making the traffic flow to those French doors still accessible. It will also make the brightly upholstered settee one of the first things visitors see when approaching my space, while not placing the settee’s back to the lovely view entirely.
I really like this seating arrangement (translation: memorable)…it’s unexpected, and it feels very welcoming to see the settee beckoning from the corner, don’t you think?
Unfortunately, after scrubbing the tile on hands and knees (much thanks to my wonderful husband for accompanying me and participating in this futile effort!) and using many kinds of cleaners (both non-toxic and toxic), the residue on the terra-cotta tiles would not come up. The dark stains are embedded down into the terra-cotta. So it looks like I have to rethink my rug placement and cover up the previous owner’s floor discoloration. Oh well….everything I’m planning will still work well in the space.
I’ll share more about my plans for the BCDH Sunroom design in future posts. Until then, feel free to visit the BCDH website here: http://www.buckscountydesignerhouse.org/

Hi Kristine, I like the arrangement. Could you just put a bigger rug in the room? The room looks like it’s coming along. Keep up the good work. Sheila
Hi Kristine, I like the furniture turned on the diagonal. How about a larger rug and 2 upholstered stools in front of the long table which is in front of the settee? Would that be too crowded? Not enough room. Good Luck and have fun. Sheila Date: Wed, 12 Mar 2014 13:35:52 +0000 To: firstname.lastname@example.org
I AM thinking of adding some upholstered stools in front of the table, Sheila. Good call! I want to wait and see how the spacing feels first, though. Since traffic flow is through the left corner, I need to make absolutely sure there is plenty of room for people….the designer house can get quite crowded, as you know! Thanks for commenting!
would you mind if I tweet this post?
