I enjoyed sharing with you a little sneak peak into my home when I did a room tour of our family room last month. Today, I’ll give you a glimpse of how we’ve (attempted) to make the most of our fairly awkward living room.
Our living room is extreeeemely long, and flows right into our family room to create a large “L” shape. The room that we currently use as our family room used to be the dining room, but we simply outgrew it. Plus, with the living room being so long, we decided that the best way to make the most of the space was to turn it into a combined living room and dining room. It has been nice to have the space utilized this way, as it allows for seamless transition from dining to relaxing, and also provides additional entertaining/eating space when we host larger groups.
We’ve lived in this house just a little over three years, now, and it’s taken us every bit of that time (and a ton of late night rearranging sessions) to land on a layout that is both visually pleasing and functional. Take a look!
