…Also known by some as the family room.
The distinction between a family room, a living room, and a recreation room may be fluid. In homes with more than one, the living room is usually the more formal room, often reserved for guests, special occasions, and the display of items such as antiques or artwork. The recreation room is typically in the basement and used for games and playtime. In homes with only one, the terms are generally synonymous. It is not uncommon for someone who grew up calling such a room by only one term to have no idea of the distinction between the two. In floorplans, a “great room” is where the living room and family room are combined into one high-ceilinged room adjacent to the kitchen.
On a side note: Tara over at That’s Why Her Hair is So Big… did a post on The 30 Day Shred Jillian Michaels. For $9 I thought I’d try it too (I tried P90X, didn’t have that much time to give up in a day, some days 1 hr, others 1 hr 15 minutes and one day 1 hr 30 minutes). For 20 a minutes a day I thought yeah I can give up that much time. Holy cow, My calves are killing me today. Yesterday was my first time. I might die but hey hopefully I can get my skinny on by my wedding… yeah probably won’t happen but a girl can dream right?
Peace, Love, & Family Living rooms 🙂
