How To Lay out A Narrow Living Room

We all wish we had perfectly shaped living rooms. Heck we all wish we had perfectly shaped everything. But often they are unique in size and shape but they might need some finessing. Meet the narrow living room – America’s most pervasive living room problem. Our Design Agony client, Hilary wrote to us asking for help with her narrow living room and here’s how we solved it:

I’m struggling with the layout of my living room, which is very narrow (like, 8.5′ wide from the wall to the fireplace surround). It serves as a main traffic thoroughfare through our house, and it’s tricky to make a cozy, welcoming layout that you can also walk through.

We’re really fortunate to have inherited a pretty amazing vintage modern furniture collection and some of those pieces are currently in that room – but I don’t know if they really work in there. We’d

Building that functions as a dwelling

Various examples of houses throughout the world, in different styles

A house is a building that functions as a home. They can range from simple dwellings such as rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes and the improvised shacks in shantytowns to complex, fixed structures of wood, masonry, concrete or other materials containing plumbing, ventilation, and electrical systems.[1][2] Houses use a range of different roofing systems to keep precipitation such as rain from getting into the dwelling space. Houses may have doors or locks to secure the dwelling space and protect its inhabitants and contents from burglars or other trespassers. Most conventional modern houses in Western cultures will contain one or more bedrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen or cooking area, and a

Scandinavian-Style Living Room Design Inspiration

At the first sign of cooler weather, our homes enter their own form of hibernation. Out comes the chunky knit throw and the candles. We surround ourselves with more lighting and greenery to make up for the dwindling daylight hours and barren trees outside our window. We also, naturally, retreat to one of the coziest places in the home: the living room.

When looking for pointers on how to cozy up a space, look no further than Scandinavia⁠—the area of the globe comprised of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. The tenants of Scandinavian design are largely intuitive. Scandinavians create bright, airy spaces to counteract the long, dark days of winter. All-white everything is common, but their palette also includes tan, gray, and black (Occasionally, you’ll see pops of blue, pink, or green in the form of accents). Scandinavians also favor design elements rooted in the natural world⁠—think wood floors, faux fur

Tips for the perfect family room design: Theme, Furniture & More

A lot of people use the terms ‘family room’ and ‘living room’ interchangeably. Although similar in context, the two have served different functions historically. A living room is more like a formal space for your guests in contrast to a family room which is a rather informal, relaxed area where people spend time with their families, watch TV or play games. Depending on specific preferences, it may or may not include child-friendly furniture and/or a workstation.
