Finding the piano in this room took a second, didn't it? Instead of standing out like an eyesore, it's tucked onto the back wall and blends in with the surroundings. Repeating the wood tone of the piano in nearby pieces allows the piano to function both as an instrument and a piece of furniture.
Here is another example of a piano that fits seamlessly into its surroundings. The white color plays off the sofa and painted ceiling, while the piano-size nook blends the instrument into the bookcases.
If you can't find a nook or corner for the piano, you still have plenty of options. Spinet, console and upright pianos can be fairly narrow, depending on the style you chose. They can fit seamlessly into a room along a wall.
Consider limiting yourself to one sofa in your family room and using the space for a piano that's bound to enhance future gatherings.
If you are a piano lover, it's time to consider bringing the instrument back into your life. Think openly about your spaces and consider where a piano might nestle. With correct color choices and placement, you may be surprised at how well a new piano fits in.
