10 Awesome IKEA Hacks for the Kitchen

I would be temped to see what's under the rug. If wood or even concrete you could paint to lighten/brighten the room. Plus you could even do a pattern to draw the eye away from the darkness.

The fireplace needs a really good cleaning to remove the smoke damage. I am tempted to say paint that because it it a large statement in the room. If you're not a fan of painting the whole room I would at least give the wall the fireplace is on a paint job. If you are willing to put in the elbow grease you could do a light stain wash throughout the room.

Definitely whatever you do don't ever paint the ceiling, it's lovely

I like the all glass. If the concern is about books being too heavy for glass shelves why not sub in some wood or MDF shelves?

How about hanging artwork in a pair or trio of frames, make it a gallery space? 3M has those adhesive hook and loop systems for hanging art which would cure any frame movement.

I would slap a wood top on that radiator as a display space / table behind a couple of chairs. It depends on exactly how much extra seating you want in the space, you could do a bench, a couple of stools or low chaise on the non-existent fourth wall which would create a comfy, conversational feeling to the room with a small sacrifice to flow. Moving the couch is a good idea, you could then use its current wall as a space of an entertainment centre to hide all the clutter and even add some art. I would recommend a lovely large area rug to anchor the space as well as a coffee table. The key to changing this space is incorporating both of you in it, it's not his space it's ours.

I have to vote for your layout choice. A lower sofa will keep the flow from being disrupted by the sofa, but still define the space. Also an added bonus, you can watch TV from the dining table when planning movie nights, sports nights etc.

I find that straight usually gives off an institutional vibe. Staggered for me.

The best way to disguise it would be art. Make that wall a gallery wall and find a framed piece that you love that'll fit into the frame already there for the door to the panel. Maybe some vintage alcohol reproductions?

I would go with scanning your favourites and framing. After some time in the sun, the cover art you love will fade, discolour and even start to warp. Plus this way you can make them larger as a statement piece, you can rarely truly appreciate complexity of images when they are small.

You could make it more modern or traditional by adding trim work and then painting or staining. It depends on what your d├ęcor sense is really.

Though that panel at the end of the dining room seems oddly placed. it is almost like they couldn't decide whether or not to finish the room.
