Keeping Room
Triad Homes
House Plans and More


AJ and I are in LOVE with the concept of having a Keeping Room off of the kitchen. Dating back to Colonial times, it provided a warm spot on a cold night where the family could gather. While our ancestors were toasty around the kitchen stove, modern design often incorporates a fireplace as the focal point. The idea of migrating to the keeping room after mealtime to be together and/or a place to contain the kids while I'm preparing dinner is extremely appealing and so pretty to look at. 


  1. Love this idea! I don't think I've ever heard the term keeping room.. I love it. I am also so with you on your kitchen inspiration! xo

  2. didn't know it was called that but i like! We've just purchased our home and want to expand already but want and will are 2 totally different things.


  3. We have one in our home, but we call it our "gathering room." I certainly wished we used it more, but always end up using the family room and kitchen nook. :)
