Living Space Ideas and Designs

The social hub of the home; living rooms, sitting rooms and family rooms are where we head to lounge, entertain and and truly live our lives. As the most “public” rooms in the house, the ideal designs for living areas are not only welcoming, comfortable and practical, but also should offer a reflection of your personal style. When considering a living room redesign or designing your living areas for the first time, you should not only consider the kinds of activities that will take place in the space but also the kind of feel you want from the room. Whether you want a relaxed, cosy lounge space or home cinema, a fun family room for the kids, a bright and airy sitting room or even conservatory, or a grander more formal living room, you will need to start by making some practical choices about furniture and storage before then looking at decoration and accessories.

Browse the various living sections on Houzz to find inspiration for your living room, home cinema, family and games room, or conservatory.

The living room in shades of pale blue and green. Patterned prints across the furnishings add depth to the space and provide cosy seating areas around the room. The built in bookcases provide useful storage and give a sense of height to the room, framing the fireplace with its textured brick surround. Dark oak wood flooring offers warmth throughout.
