I think it depends on what else will be in the room. TV? sofas? how big?

Your best bet is to sketch mock-ups of various furniture arrangements, to scale, including your piano. Acess and circulation to and through the space will also be a determinant.

There is no "best" fireplace location, only the location that works with the furniture choices and arrangement that you will use.

Good luck with your project.

Kassikolo, all you need is a pencil, some blank paper and an architect's scale, available from a drafting or artist supply store. No computer, no software needed. Just the old fashioned analog way!
