Contemporary Traditional Great Room With Cove Lighting
A blend of traditional and contemporary styles mingle in this great room with red floral armchairs next to sleek, x-base tables. The drop ceiling with cove lighting makes the formal space feel cozy yet modern.
Modern Great Room With Clerestory Windows and Blue Sofa
This modern great room features an unusual pendant light over the dining table, a blue sofa with square white coffee table in the living area, and a row of clerestory windows for abundant natural light.
Adding French doors to a living room creates indoor-outdoor functionality and supplies the space with natural light. Before adding French doors to your living room, consider which direction they'll need to swing. If seating will be placed within 36 inches of the doors, it's best to choose an outward-swinging style for optimum traffic flow. If the space just inside the doors will be unobstructed, an inward-swinging option will work well. Most home improvement stores offer inward- and outward-swinging doors for the same price.
Cozy furnishings and the stone fireplace are the stars of this great room, which also features a vaulted ceiling with wood beams. The sliding glass doors let in natural light and open to a side wrap around porch that offers incredible views.

Contemporary Open Concept Great Room With Window Wall

Elegant and formal, this two-story great room feels even grander with floor-to-ceiling mirrors on either side of the room. Dramatic chandeliers, arched doorways and formal furnishings complete the luxury space.
Incorporating a living room, dining area and kitchen all together works well to open up a space and get rid of some walls. By eliminating the attic and raising the ceiling, the space is able to feel twice as large.
