First things first, the dining table should be somewhere near the kitchen area.

There should be a passageway between the living room and the kitchen, starting from the house's entrance and going all the way to the bedrooms.

The sitting area is arranged on the left side of the house entrance. A two seater couch placed deep on the narrow side of the living room and a three seater couch with its back facing the kitchen mark the sitting area. A TV unit is placed opposite the three seater couch and a console furniture rests on the wall opposite the entrance.

The access to the sitting area is achieved by the passageways on both sides of the three seater couch.

The free corner of the living room on the bottom left can be occupied by either an armchair or a shelving unit.
