This room drives me crazy. Glass windows and sliding door down one long side. Fireplace at one end. Stairs at the other end. We are painting the walls Berkshire white in the near future. Any suggestions on furniture layout?

You have too much in the room. Do you need to keep the TV? How many people do you need to seat? Is there a budget for new furniture or will you work with what you have? Ps love the doggo.
Umm , I'm trying to be polite , but it looks like a 1970's flat !
The floor is quite nice . I hate painting brick , and I don't think I have ever suggested it , but please paint the fireplace haha .
So Berkshire White walls -- that looks quite a dirty white to me . You want it warm and lived in ( crisp white would be too clinical IMO ) , but why not get a bit more like an English white or Off-White or Napkin -- warm , without too much yellow or blue though . The two end walls are a bit too beigey IMO , a 'halfway' tone would be warm without looking old .
The fireplace painted the same , or get creative -- charcoal or khaki or even a light bronze dabbed on to give a bagged look ? Possibly leave the mantelpiece exposed wood if its pleasant looking .
Change the curtains , probably take a couple of the pics away and spread the rest around , the lounge suite is okay , the rug looks nice , everything is sort of okay but mismatched . Sell at least 1 wall unit , I'd suggest go darker brown genuine wood for every cabinet , get matching stools if you want stools , add a beanbag if you have teens or want to look fun , TV has to go near the plugs and also away from the windows and fireplace , so probably about where it is , set everything as you wish . Do you sit and talk , watch TV , have a great view out the glass , have laptops on your laps -- work it around your lifestyles .
Maybe add colourful cushions , vases , a lamp -- the world ( or your lounge ) is your oyster .
Narrow rooms are tricky. Can you provide dimensions on a sketch and if keeping furniture their dimensions too. How often do you use tv and fireplace and how many people everyday.
i would do a single armchair either side of the fireplace, remove all other furniture / items. a tv against the wall where the dark timber cabinet is, and an two seater lounge opposite, against the window beside the stairs. tv could potentially be wall mounted so it could be adjusted position wise, and then a nice table underneath with storage.
