One thing that has really been puzzling me is the concept of having both a living room and a family room. I have never lived in a home with this type of set-up and I tend to use these terms interchangeably. I'm sure you can understand why I have no idea what to use these spaces for. So, can you please help a girl out??
Here is our living room:
This photo was taken from the dining room. When you walk in the front door, the living room is to your immediate left and the dining room is on the right.
Here is our family room:
The angle of this photo would be if you stepped into the family room from the kitchen. To the right of the lamp is a large window and to the left of the fireplace is a door that leads to the deck.
I have read numerous articles on the different uses of a living room and family room. From what I gather, the living room is more formal with no TV (gasp!) and the family room has the comfy furniture with the entertainment.
Do you have a living room and a family room? How do you utilize these spaces? Do you have any great ideas for these blank slates? I appreciate all input!
