Gather Round

Entertaining friends, spending quiet time with family, or relaxing solo—there are as many ways to use the common areas in your house as there are entries in our contest. Whether it was completely redoing an unfinished basement or finally remodeling that unused attic upstairs, you all proved that the favorite rooms in your home should be cozy as well as beautiful. These are the picks of the best living spaces for our fifth-annual Reader Remodel Contest, as chosen by the editors of This Old House.

After you've browsed these lovely living redos, you can see of this year's entries here.
