    4ish meters. Tv is on the wall on one side of the room and lounge is on the other side. It seems to be the perfect distance. I think it would depend on how big your tv is etc but too far to me would be when you can't see the what's on tv without squinting

    We have a long big lounge room, it's really annoying actually. It's funny you should mention it as we are switching things round at the moment and it's a question that has been on my mind too.

    We are giving our lounge room a little make over. We have just brought a new tv cabinet which we already have but the couch is at the other end of the room so for me I find it hard to see some stuff on tv. We also have a games console which is hard to play the opposite side of room, so we are getting rid of our couch as it's old anyway and sort of seen it's day. We have occasional chairs but had to order them so are waiting for delivery. So anyway we'll beable to move them around the room, have them close to tv for games console or further away. I hope it works actually.

    We also have a pouf thingy which is already good for moving about, which will stay.

    Sorry for the essay.

    Ours is about 5 metres from the couch, depending on which part of the lounge you're sitting on. TV is on one wall then a big modular lounge in a squared off u-shape is on the opposite wall.

    We went on holidays before Christmas and in the apartment we stayed at the TV was only 2 metres from the couch - way too close! It made me feel sick watching it that close up.

    I live in a tiny little place at the moment and there is only around 1.5 meters tops between the couch and TV. I wish I had the problem of my lounge room being too large.

    About 3 metres? Kids are about 3.5/4 (they have their own chair each to the side).

    I would say 3 metres away from our 60inch tv

    It's on one side and the couch on the other though, so as far apart as possible
