Tolkien design vs Jackson design Can't Post

So, I saw some screencaps for our favorite shape-shifters home, and I was curious.

It was a lovely set, and I really liked how it was laid out, but where exactly is our company supposed to sleep?

It seems to be (at least from the inside) a large one room dwelling, and there is a gargantuan table smack in the center.

Are our dwarves going to sleep under it? Or perhaps on it?

I really loved Tolkien's illustration of a long hall with a firepit in the center and raised floor on either side-very reminiscent of an Iroquois longhouse, and something like that would have made more sense because the dwarves could have lain their bedrolls along that bare patch.

But, in Jackson's design, it seems that Beorn at least would have a bit of a tight space to maneuver about in, and there were (again, lovely, don't get me wrong) pieces of either furniture, or shelving, or honeycombs, etc seeming to cover every inch of that floor (except, as I mentioned, under the table).

Any thoughts?

Is Jackson's Beorn home (from what we have seen) better or worse than Tolkien's in terms of dwarf sleeping quarters?

Tauriel (as her hair catches during BO5A)- Ah, now I understand why you keep your beard so short, master Kili!
Kili: Um, because it grows slowly? (glares at her for perceived insult)
Tauriel: Because your arrows don't get tangled in your *^%*(^$%* beard every time you shoot! (more curses as it gets further tangled)
Kili: Um, YEAH! That's it! That's why I keep my beard short! (strides off triumphantly with a huge grin on his face, still shooting arrows as the cursing and tangles continues behind him)

Tauriel keeps fighting the tangles on the battlefield long after Dain takes the throne and Dale is rebuilt. Frodo takes the ring to Morder and once Sauron is defeated she FINALLY gets the last arrow out.
