Large lounge room windows provide additional access points and light, but can restrict layout options if you want a big-screen TV or a projection wall. Take heart: if you're willing to put in some manual labour, you can brick up the window for more room layout options.
Blogger Tom details how he redesigned his lounge room by bricking up a window to create a space where a TV could reside. By his own admission the brick-laying isn't particularly impressive, but once the wall has been filled and painted, that's not a major issue. Caution is always advised with pulling out larger windows as there may be structural implications, but it's worth remembering that just because your house is laid out in a certain way, you're not always stuck with that layout.
