Yes, we must try to picture the furniture in the apartment before bying it, so I guess that's the best way to do it. I will also go and see the apartment before we move so I can see how it's like and how the tenant is doing it now. But it looks like a turnable wall mount for the TV would be the best solution, so that the sofa is where it is on the floorplan. I always want to sit in front of the TV, so I've done some bad furnishing in my bachelor days. That's why I needed help, I'm sure my wife will agree with your points, and now I don't have to disagree. This is all quite recent, so we haven't had time to discuss it, but I'm more ready to do it now.
