What I still love about it is that is right off kitchen, it allows me to watch TV while cooking or watch the kids play there. There was nothing I hated more in our previous house than being completely cut off while in the kitchen and I always wanted more of an open space. While this house does not completely give us that as this family room is quite tiny, we still do have a space to sit in, relax in and watch TV that is right on the first floor and completely connected with kitchen (hmmm how many times will I repeat this phrase.. it is obviously quite important to me..)
I will go over improvements we made to this space in a separate Before & After post, for now I just wanted to share what this space currently looks like (even though I just switched the furniture around as a temporary arrangement) especially as I just completed the gallery wall I've been 'working on' for last few months. By 'working on' I mean that I placed two pictures up and then waited couple of months before I added the rest... Oh well.
Side note: It was hard to take good photos of the space due to reflection as I had to close of natural light as much as possible to reduce the reflection in TV and pictures with glass.
