Family living room interior designs for memorable moments

Cosy family living room interiors that take care of all the needs of the people you care for.

The living room is the most ‘happening’ space in your home. It is where you entertain guests, spend quality time with family, enjoy cosy me-time with books and coffee, and host movie nights and house parties. The pandemic taught us family bonding and compassion and reminded us of the true value of our home’s safety and security. So, create more opportunities for memorable bonding with our family-friendly living room ideas for your home. These designs are thoughtfully created to cater to all the needs of different family members and make them feel special. This could be your way of thanking them for their contribution to making your life meaningful and glorious.

Family Living Room Ideas With A Sectional Sofa To Enjoy Quality Time Together

A comfortable seating arrangement is one of the most crucial things to make your living room cosy and family-friendly. It is where you can catch up with your loved ones and enjoy quality time together. The best way to do it is a comfortable sectional sofa. This sofa design provides you with ample space and also utilises the room’s corner well. This sofa also comes with a storage unit. We designed this living room in Orchid Whitefield, Bengaluru, with a blue sectional sofa and a beautiful TV unit that features multiple storage solutions for cosy movie nights and family get-togethers.

A Happy Family Living Room With Storage Partition For Toys And Showpieces 

A partition creates a subtle barrier between your outer and inner space. It enhances privacy and accentuates the home interiors. But bulky partitions can often make the room look too cluttered. So, our expert designers installed a partition with box shelves in this apartment at Assetz Here & Now in Bengaluru. Our client wanted a storage option for toys so that their child could play within sight while they watched TV. We designed the partition with shelves for toys in the lower portion, making everything within reach for the little one and kept the top shelves for displaying artefacts and books.

Family-Friendly Living Room Designs With A Swing For Some Fun

A swing is one beautiful piece of furniture that infuses a fun element into your modern home. If you have elder parents or young kids at home, this traditional swing will be a great addition to your family living room. It adds an extra seating option to the room and a fun and playful vibe. Our team designed this family living room in Sumadhura Eden Garden in Bengaluru. They installed smart furniture and POP wall panellings. The ottoman on either side of the sofa unit comes with hidden storage, while the wall panelling adds definition to the interiors. But the main attraction of this living room is the traditional wooden swing with cushions. It completes the look and lends a traditional touch to the space.

A Family Living Room With A Glass Cabinet To Showcase Your Love For Art

Does your partner love to collect souvenirs? Then this entertainment unit with a tall glass cabinet on the side will be a valuable addition to your family living room. We designed this living room in Sumadhara Nandanam in Bengaluru with a beautiful TV unit that features back wall panelling and multiple storage units. The open shelf and pull-out drawers provide ample space to neatly arrange daily essentials. The attached tall cabinet with glass doors and shelves helps arrange your prized souvenirs and artefacts. To accessorise the empty wall space, we placed a contemporary wall clock and a beautiful indoor plant on a metal stand.

A Cosy Family Living Room With A Vintage Piece Of Furniture

Some furniture has childhood memories and strong attachments that you cannot let go of, even when revamping your home with modern interiors. This living room interior by DesignCafe is an excellent example of how to incorporate your vintage furniture piece into modern interiors. Our team designed this living room in Sumukha Vriddhi in Bengaluru with wood panelling to match the vintage book cabinet. The entertainment unit is also designed in wood-like laminates to complete the look. While the modular TV unit with shelves and cabinets infuses a modern look, the vintage book cabinet adds to the aesthetics and keeps the old-world charm intact. This design is perfect if you have elderly family members who are attached to their old furniture pieces.

Family Living Room With A View Of The Outdoors

Enjoying the outdoor view makes your family time even more special. The natural light and fresh air make your interiors look vibrant and positively affect your mind. So, if you have an attached balcony with your family room, make the most of it by adding some house plants and a rattan chair. Opt for a glass door partition so you and your family can have a clear view of the outside while enjoying a cosy time indoors.

Do you have a teenager at home who loves reading books? Well, this family living design is sure to bring a smile to their face. The TV unit comes with a stunning brick-cladding wall background and a hidden book cabinet on either side. While the brick-cladding wall lends a rugged industrial style loved by most uber-cool teenagers and young adults, the concealed book cabinets instantly turn your family living room into a small library.

Living Room With Study For An Ergonomic Work Setup

A home office has become essential for modern homes. But having a separate room for your work from home setup can be difficult, especially if you have a compact apartment. So, we thought of incorporating your personalised office setup in the living room itself. This works well if you are or have a work from home mom who wants to keep an eye on the kids while managing office work. You can also help your kids with their homework or take quick work calls in between your daily home chores.

Living Room With Pooja Unit To Infuse A Spiritual Vibe

A pooja room infuses a spiritual vibe in your home and completes the family living room, especially for most Indian households. So, having a simple yet aesthetically beautiful pooja room that matches your modern home interiors plays a crucial role in making a happy family living room. This family living room has a small mandir in marble finish where your entire family can come together for an evening arati or festive havan during special occasions. This too is a perfect example of striking the correct balance of modern and traditional home interiors. While the modular TV unit and seating arrangement lends an uber-cool look, the traditional mandir keeps the spiritual charm intact, making it a perfect space for family members of all age groups.

Living Room With Indoor Gaming Setup

When thinking of family living room decor, the first thought that comes to our mind is our kid’s preference. A kid-friendly living room helps in creating a healthy family bond. One of the best ways to keep them happy is to incorporate an indoor gaming setup in the living room. Here we have added a ping pong table in the partition unit where you can have some fun time with your kids. This will help them engage in some light physical activity and enjoy fun family time together.
