    • Help! What to do with this wall , and the windows !, Hi and Thanks in advance , 
This is my living room wall , with a TV that hung on it. Obviously the speaker on the floor is a temporary thing. 
The wall is about 18Feet wide, I am adding 2 40 inch storage bench and planning to build a "floating shelf" type counter wal to tall about 4 feet above the ground with a small entertaintment cabinet 

But I need some ideas other than that. There use to be a huge ledge that was really unrealstic and made the room look very small. 
The windows are also a pain as during most of the day there is a lot of light that comes through ( Which i like as it brightens up the room) but it sure is a pain when we are watching the TV.
Also do not know how to decorate the window area. 

I apologize if my description was a little confusing and not clear. 
Thanks in advance, Living Rooms Design
