Family Room. When you are looking for furniture appropriate for the family room, you may want to go more casual and useful. If you have kids and pets, they will more than likely be utilizing the room more than anyone else. For those who have pets, leather furniture may not be the best, because if your cat has not been declawed or your dog likes to chew on furniture, the slightest scratch could make a huge difference. You probably want to consider fabrics that are easy to clean and durable.

Living Room. Furniture for your living room will probably be more fancy and less useful than your family room furniture. This is the space where you will go to entertain guests and display more precious decorative items. Keep in mind though, you still want the room to match you and your family’s lifestyle.

Once you have found furniture you like, get physical with it, sit down on it, feel the seams – are they finished properly? You want to make sure that before you take it home, it is exactly what you want and need.
