Whats 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 thats more casual.  While there really isnt a technical distinction, one distinguishing mark of a family room is the presence of a television (when theres another living room with no TV).  Of course this isnt set in stone since a TV isnt a prerequisite for a family room, but its one way to distinguish the two.

Growing up our home had a formal living room and casual family room (with a TV).  Our family room was off the kitchen.  We spent many hours in that room (leaving the living room to collect dust much of the year).  It was where we played our favorite family board game Monopoly, played the antiquated video game system Coleco Vision and of course watched television such as the infamous Cosby Show followed by Family Ties (a big family TV night in the 80s).

My current home with wife and young son has what one would call a great room for the main living space.  The large space includes a sitting area with sectional sofa and chair facing the fireplace and television (which can conveniently be concealed with sliding wood doors).  Our family loves the open concept or great room concept and if we ever built a home wed incorporate the great space layout.

Other room terms which are used interchangeably with family room include salon, parlour, 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 isnt common.

Below is 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.
