Create a Conversation Area

This family room had a new addition and gave the homeowners alot more space, they just were not sure how to use it.


BEFORE


AFTER
We divided up the room into two areas--- a nice conversation area and place to sit down with a good book, as well as a TV watching area.


BEFORE
All of the furniture was facing the TV.



AFTER
We placed the sofa and chair next to each other so they would work with watching TV or having a conversation.


It created an intimate space and a more cozy feeling.


BEFORE
One large space with everyone facing the TV.


AFTER
Two areas, with multiple uses.

    I love what you've done. The room is alot warmer and makes you want to come in and do something other than watch TV.

    I love to change things and am always dragging or pushing furniture from one room to the other. One piece has wheels and boy howdy! does that make things easier. My poor hubby doesn't like change, bless his heart.
    Love what you did with the living room/TV area. Fabulous!

    That's a great redo. I think you have used a sewing table, which I love! Also enjoyed scrolling down to some previous transformations - really nice! Linda

    THanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I don't know what made me think of doing that. A girl I work with was playing around with them on a table at work just kinda pushing them in because she was bored...i saw her do it and BAM it hit me!

    I really enjoyed viewing the before and after pictures you posted of the family room. Your furniture layout was very visually appealing and gave the homeowners two areas of the room to enjoy. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

    A lovely arrangement. It looks gorgeous and so easy for conversation as well as tv. I love a space to sit quietly. Hugs, Marty

    Very nice. I can never understand why people want everything to face the TV.

    Wonderful rearranging! Amazing how just a twist here and there will help the room feel bigger and cozier...but also the conversation wont be strained.

    Thanks always for stopping by with such kind words.!
    Much appreciated.

    I noticed in the picture you took facing the kitchen that there are items displayed on top of the kitchen cabinets. I'm hoping someday you will show us a few tricks of the trade for decorating kitchen cabinet tops.
