Living Room Floor Data

Living room designs employ different color schemes; some are beige and cream with light woods, others are in rich reds and dark woods. Others employ bright jewel blues or greens for a bolder look.  And then some incorporate area rugs for the benefit of carpet, yet still providing the aesthetic benefits of hardwood flooring.  Check out our rug buying guide and carpet buying guide.

Nearly all of these living rooms follow the basic and recognizable living room design: they have sofas, chairs and coffee tables; many have fireplaces and shelving units. A few have media centers and visible televisions.

Many of these rooms also share architectural details. A running theme is ceiling detail. Make sure to look for coffered ceilings, exposed beams, and crown molding.

Some of the rooms featured in this gallery are expansive, with soaring ceilings. Others are more modestly sized. Size is no object to beautiful design, and each of these rooms is an example of fantastic attention to detail, form and function.

One surprising figure is how uncommon laminate flooring is used.  I expected that to be higher, but no doubt hardwood is preferable for many reasons.
