Welcome to our gallery of family rooms by top designers around the world!
Family rooms are one of the most versatile rooms in a home.
They can be a quiet study, an entertainment room, a man cave, a sitting room, or just a place to put the kids away from the adults (which is what what our family used it for when we were growing up).
Some family rooms work as a combination of multiple aspects of these rooms. For example, including a TV in a sitting room or putting a study in a room that doubles as a TV room.
Designed as a TV room and a quiet study, the built-in bookshelves add plenty of storage for the extensive collection of books and collectibles. The white Eames lounge chair makes for an excellent place to sit and work or read.
We have examples of many of these rooms available to you here! Whether you’re looking for a quiet, cozy corner or a place to watch movies with the family we’ve found something to inspire your own ideas.
No matter what your design style is, or how much space you have to work with, you can make a family room. Some of our examples here are tiny spaces or narrow rooms, but they have been easily made into comfortable, cozy family rooms.
Oftentimes we find that the most surprising family rooms are the best ones. The unexpected is often better than the status quo.
We hope that you can find something here to spark and delight ideas of your own!
