The living room, in our estimation, is the most important living space in any home. The reason for this is simple. The living room is the one palce that you and yours, as well as your friends and family, can return on special occasions or just because. In fact, the time that you all spend in that living room is something that’s going to create many of the cherished memories in your lifetime. Given that, don’t you want a living room that provides an incredible backdrop for all of those life-defining moments?
Of course, you probably don’t need any convincing on this front. If you’re like most homeowners, than you already understand the importance of a well-designed living room. Likewise, you already understand that a fireplace can really define such a space, providing an anchor for the room’s design overall.
