As a central gathering place for any family, it’s important that a living room’s design be all that it can be. This is doubly true if you have a smaller living room, as it can be all too easy to make such spaces feel cluttered and uninviting!
Below, we’re going to take a look at 15 cozy living rooms with fireplaces. In each example, we think you’ll see all of the important things that go into designing a cozy living room. From bright colors that help to spice things up, to unique storage solutions, and even to unique furniture arrangements, it’s all here.
So, if you’re trying to find the right design for a cozy living room with fireplace of your own, then you’ve come to the right place! Take a look at these 15 tremendous examples, and find all the inspiration you could possibly need for your own living room!
1. Keeping it Bright
Bright colors help to keep this cozy and intimate living room design with fireplace from seeming too closed in.
2. Floating Furniture
In a small living room, the temptation can be to put all the furniture along the walls. Instead, floating the furniture can actually help to make the room feel larger.
3. Understate Elegance
With the living room space limited in this open-concept home, elegant whites and dark browns have been used. Everything, of course, centers around the fireplace.
When you really want to increase the coziness of a small living room around the fireplace, a large ottoman can be just the thing you need!
5. Getting Eclectic
To make a cozy living room with fireplace really feel like something unique, you can make some eclectic design choices. This one does it with the accent wall behind the couch.
6. Keeping it Open
If you want your cozy living room with fireplace to feel more open, you can go for a more minimal furniture arrangement as this example does.
7. The Center of Attention
There’s no denying that this wonderful cozy living room design makes the fireplace its center of attention.
8. Television to the Side
We all want a television in our living rooms, but we don’t want that television dominating the space. Here’s a unique solution to that issue.
9. A Centerpiece
Notice how the centerpiece houseplant on the coffee table in this example really helps to increase the coziness of the space overall.
10. The Fireplace Stove
A fireplace is all well and good for a cozy living room design, but a stove (like the one you see here) can be something else entirely!
11. Contemporary Coziness
Anyone who tells you that a contemporary home can’t be cozy is lying through their teeth! Check out this beautiful living room.
12. Lowering the Ceiling
High ceilings are nice, but they can ruin the sense of intimacy a space can have. Note how the built-ins around this cozy living room’s fireplace appear to almost lower the ceiling height.
13. Wood and Leather
Want to create a cozy vibe around your living room fireplace that simply can’t be beat? If so, then wood and leather are going to be your best friends.
14. The Right Rug
An all-white living room with fireplace can work against that cozy vibe you’re trying to create. However, a brown area rug (like the one used here) can change that!
15. It’s On You
Coziness is, as they say, in the feeling of the beholder. Whatever it is that makes you feel like you’re at home around a fireplace is what you should do!
