What’s the difference between a family room and a living room?

It depends.  Some homes use the living room as the family and vice versa.

Other homes have a more formal living room and a separate family room that’s more casual.  While there really isn’t a technical distinction, one distinguishing mark of a family room is the presence of a television (when there’s another living room with no TV).

Of course, this isn’t set in stone since a TV isn’t a prerequisite for a family room, but it’s one way to distinguish the two.  Other room terms which are used interchangeably with family room include salon, parlor, den, entertainment room, TV room, lounge and recreation room.

While there may be slight distinctions in homes with each of these rooms, the fact of the matter is most homes today have one or two sitting rooms to which all terms more or less apply.  If you have a 10,000 square foot mansion with multiple sitting rooms, each room may be designated for specific purposes, but this isn’t common (unfortunately).

The family room is designed to be a place where family and guests gather for group recreation like talking, reading, watching TV, and other family activities. Often, the family room is located adjacent to the kitchen, and at times, flows into it with no visual breaks. (Source Wikipedia)

Check out our extensive gallery of family room design ideas in photographs.  Most rooms were chosen as a family room because of the presence of a television. As you can see, you can filter your search by style, size, floor, color, lighting and more.
