100 Living Rooms Without a Fireplace (Photos)

Epic photo gallery showcasing the nicest living rooms without a fireplace. Get all kinds of ideas and inspiration here to create a gorgeous living space. A fireplace is not necessary as you’ll see in order to create a gorgeous design. Some of my favorites don’t have a fireplace.


 

While there are many living rooms with a fireplace, there are many without a fireplace.  A fireplace is definitely not a prerequisite for a living room.  In fact, many new homes these days use only gas fireplaces if they put one in at all.  The fact is a fireplace takes up valuable wall space in a living room, although it does serve as a place above which to mount a flat screen TV.

Here’s the deal.  If you don’t have a fireplace, you want to design ideas to accommodate that.  We deliver in spades.  Below is a huge photo gallery showcasing all

Design Thinking 101

History of Design Thinking

It is a common misconception that design thinking is new. Design has been practiced for ages: monuments, bridges, automobiles, subway systems are all end-products of design processes. Throughout history, good designers have applied a human-centric creative process to build meaningful and effective solutions.

In the early 1900’s husband and wife designers Charles and Ray Eames practiced “learning by doing,” exploring a range of needs and constraints before designing their Eames chairs, which continue to be in production even now, seventy years later. 1960’s dressmaker Jean Muir was well known for her “common sense” approach to clothing design, placing as much emphasis on how her clothes felt to wear as they looked to others. These designers were innovators of their time. Their approaches can be viewed as early examples of design thinking — as they each developed a deep understanding of their users’ lives and unmet needs.

Where It Is Located in the House

Living rooms are often in the front of the house, near the entry way, and living rooms are more likely used to entertain guests on more formal occasions. Family rooms, on the other hand, are generally located in the back of the home, near the kitchen and often adjacent to an outdoor space like a deck or patio. Family rooms are more traditionally reserved for the family itself to use
