Pajama Lounges Are Taking Over Houses Everywhere and We Love It

Move your living room upstairs and let the fun begin.

Pajama lounges are having a serious moment and they're the dreamiest home trend of all time — there, we said it. If you haven't heard of a space like this before, it's essentially an upstairs living room that's very private and the perfect place to gather as a family after rolling out of bed in your (you guessed it) pajamas.

This concept is part of a growing trend of living spaces moving upstairs, where it's more secluded. "They're designed to be a place where the family can gather and hang out away from the high-traffic areas of the home," Paul Fischman, principal designer at Choeff Levy Fischman in Miami, told Still can't picture what we're talking about? This Massachusetts room, designed by Frank Roop, is one strikingly gorgeous example of a pajama lounge.

But this space, which is also known as a "feasting room," has more perks than just having a close couch to collapse on come Saturday morning. If you're hosting a few friends or your monthly book club, your children or spouse can hang out in the pajama lounge without having to miss out on their fun.

I shared quite the passionate plea about saving older houses and not necessarily running away screaming when you hear those two dirty words (foundation issues) on this week’s podcast episode 74. And just as John warned me, we heard from A LOT of people. Let’s just say we already recorded an update for next week’s podcast 😂 Also what do you guys think about the hot new “Pajama Lounge” trend that’s sweeping the nation? Here’s ours all decked out for Christmas 😂👌🎄 #liketkit

When it comes to designing this space, since it's not a place guests frequently visit, you can get creative and experiment. But we'll say right now that a good soft and cozy accessories are a must. "Having a variety of comfortable, low seating would be best," Lisa McDennon, interior designer and founder of Lisa McDennon Design in Laguna Beach, California told "Think pillows, poufs, and lots of cozy throws to bundle up in on cold days."

I’m spending my Saturday excitedly cleaning out the basement but I think I may have had a Eureka moment for my loft! On my Home Tour Page (link still in profile btw) I mentioned that I haven’t been able to figure out what to do with this space and and yesterday the seed of an idea came to me - floor to ceiling board and batten in the same color as the wall. I still need to let it marinate in my brain a bit because of all the doorways .....but what do you think?🤔🤔 . Shelves from @crateandbarrel . Couches from @ikeausa . . #hilltownhouse #modernfarmhouse #pajamalounge #diyanddecorate #currenthomeview #workinprogress

One couple calls their second-floor living room the 'healing chambers.' Another homeowner calls it the 'feasting room.' Others refer to 'pajama lounges.' Regardless of the name, developers, architects and real-estate agents are increasingly getting requests for upper-level living rooms. The lounge shown here is at the top of an 8,000-square-foot home in Oak Brook, Ill. Read more via the link in our bio.

From there, it's important to make sure the space can serve multiple uses for your family. Include a couple desks if you want your children to do their homework in this room or a bookshelf full of games if you want to use it to host game nights. You'll use this multi-purpose space more if if checks multiple boxes for your loved ones — and they'll thank you for it later.
