FAMILY ROOMS Everyone Loves

by | Jun 30, 2023 | Great rooms, living rooms, dens

SOME SAY there’s a “recipe” for cozy and comfortable family rooms. Of course, like apple pie, there are lots of different recipes – here’s a basic recipe everyone is sure to enjoy.

Bring out the blankets.

Roll out the rugs.

Light the fireplace and turn on soft lights.

Don’t make it fussy.

Don’t make it too bright.

Have some throw pillows, and an ottoman or two.

Nothing should be pretentious.

Nothing should be “hands-off.”

Viola – a family room everyone loves!

Our readers kindly shared the photos on the next few pages of their warm and welcoming family rooms.  We hope their family rooms help you choose the “ingredients” you want to create a family room everyone loves.
