Finding just the right furniture placement that looks good, functions well, and fits perfectly can be tricky sometimes.  Especially if you’re dealing with a too-small (or too large) space, an awkward floor plan, or a design element that you’re not sure what to do with.

The corner fireplace can be one such element.  Even though some specifically choose to have them and love them, there are others that are frustrated and puzzled by them.

One of our readers recently asked if we could put together a post with some ideas on how to address the issue, especially when there’s a TV involved.

Of course there isn’t just one answer, because floor plans and furniture vary, but we’ll definitely get you started in the right direction.

Fireplace Media Consoles

Love the way they used an unexpected wall color - really livens up the space. The fireplace media console is a good idea too - space saving and ups the cozy factor!

Many of us probably have memories, whether of the holidays or otherwise, of happy times spent around a warm, crackling fire in the fireplace.

There is obviously more to the memories than just the fireplace, but the fire enhances the warm, happy vibe we remember feeling and the memory wouldn’t be the same without it.

Of course, having the crackle (a.k.a. wood burning) in a fireplace creates work and maintenance, so many of us now opt for the convenience of gas or electric fireplaces. Click the remote and instant ambience! The warmth, literally and visually, created by the fire adds a cozy dimension to a room.

If your home doesn’t already have a fireplace, or you do have one but would like another, a Fireplace Media Console is an excellent alternative to consider.

In addition to upping the cozy quotient in a room, it adds media organization, and combines two focal points, the fireplace and the TV, which makes furniture placement easier.
