Arranging furniture in a long room

To place furniture in a long, tunnel-like room, make a sketch to help analyze traffic patterns and arrive at furniture locations. Divide parts of the room into nooks and crannies that can be used for breakfast or other things.

When it comes to placing the rest of the furniture, it may be necessary to place the sofa along the long wall of the room. To do otherwise would mean transecting the room, and since the purpose of a sunroom is to provide a place for family members to sit and enjoy each other's company, creating an engaging conversation area is necessary.
