Layout for combining living room & playroom?

2 years ago

We're trying to transition this (very messy at the moment) room from being only a playroom to more of a shared living/play space. Goals:

-Seating: adding a sofa (and maybe chairs) for reading & conversation

-Storage for toys that is still easily accessible

-Piano needs to stay where it is (for sun, temp, and moisture exposure).

-Books: Definitely want to keep the books in the room, but we're not committed to the current bookshelf

-The wainscotting makes built-ins not an option at this stage.

We painted the room and love the color, and we're considering plantation shutters for the windows. It's really the layout that has us stumped! The basketball goal can go away but most other toys we'd like to keep in the room.

Other than just centering a sofa on the main wall, any other more creative ideas?

Thanks for any thoughts!!
