Welcome to our gallery of beautiful living room and family room design ideas.
Family rooms can be a great place in your house where you can relax or spend time with your loved ones. Although similar in design and function to living rooms, family rooms are still a little different as they are typically not so grand and formal. Family rooms can usually be found in larger homes that have more spare rooms and are often located in the back of the house – away from the front entrance and main living room where you would normally invite guests and spend special occasions. They are therefore more secluded and private, and have a more casual design appeal. They can often double as a play area for the kids, a home office or anything else that the family might need.
Family rooms are usually furnished with a comfortable sofa, a couple of armchairs and a coffee table. It is always a good idea to have a wide selection of seating options for the whole family. It is usually better to stay away from whole furniture sets as they can make the design more monotonous and boring. Instead, you can choose a sofa and armchairs that are totally different in design, color and material, but still you would have to keep an eye out for consistency and coherence. A good idea that could tie the whole room together would be to pick out a sofa and ottomans from the same set and add contrast with a pair of accent armchairs.
A large flat screen TV facing the sitting area is always nice to have in your family room. A certain asset would be a fireplace that you can enjoy in the cold months. If you have an ear for good music, then your grand piano could make a great focal point in the design. Or you could add a desk and bookshelves and have a nice little office area in the comfort of your own home. No matter which way you choose to go, do not forget to spruce up the whole space with beautiful home decor items such as plants, vases, sculptures, pillows and rugs. And of course, a family room would just not be complete without a fine selection of photo memories in nice frames.
Below we have collected several nice photos of living/family room designs to get ideas for your own home:
