Living Room Layouts
Living Rooms, often interchangeably referred to as lounges or sitting rooms, are spaces found in residential environments that are designed and furnished to encourage both socializing and relaxation. Traditionally located around a central fireplace, or hearth, the living room is often understood as the primary gathering space in a house for families and guests alike. Living rooms are furnished with a variety of furniture based around seating and table options, and includes: armchairs, lounge chairs, loveseats, sofas, sectional sofas, ottomans, poufs, coffee tables, side tables, and credenzas.
The terms ‘Living Room’ and ‘Family Room’ are typically interchangeable, but living rooms are commonly more formal than the more all-purpose uses of a modern family room.
Living rooms are most often defined by sofas, chairs, coffee tables, side tables, and area rugs.
Living rooms are multi-functional gathering spaces for families and/or guests used for a variety of purposes that include: receiving visitors, entertaining, socializing, relaxing, reading, and watching television and movies.
