Advise on how to furnish a small living room

Hi guys,

As you can see the living room is quite small. So its quite a headache trying to fit in a sofa and a dining table

The width of the living room from the window wall to the other wall is only 11.5 feet.

What type of sofa would you recommend? L-shaped type or those separate kind?

For dining table, i'm ok to go for a small square kind.

Just fyi, house is a 4 room flat
And the current sofa and coffee table are left behind by the previous owner.

I have rearrange the coffee table and place the red chair there just to estimate the space required. Am thinking to get a smaller sofa than the owner's one. As you can see from the photo, if the sofa is facing the tv and not against the window, it is quite cramp.. but i do hope i can find a suitable sofa length which can face the tv

For ur layout I would consider putting a small sofa closer to tv, and placing the dining table behind sofa.

My living room is about the same size, 3.8m wide. There is no dining table in the living room, behind is the shoe rack and MF printer. Dining table is in the kitchen, it is possible to fit a table with 4 seats in the kitchen.

My HDB is also 4rm, the layout is slightly different. I have a cinema theatre, so it has to take up more space. Your kitchen looks larger than mine, can place table inside.

Just went and take some measurement again.. dun think can place the dining table behind sofa.. the best arrangement is like this liao.. sofa against the window, dining table towards the other side of the wall but closer to the kitchen

Wifey prefer dining table to be outside..
