The devil's in the details so when it comes to creating a beautiful family home that you can be proud of, we bet you'd like to see what other people have been doing, right? 

We've found 20 stunning family homes, all of which are full-to-bursting with lovely touches, great interior design and functional spaces, and brought them altogether for you, right here. We know you're going to love the façades and gardens we've got to show you but we've also included the project links for each home in case you fancy having a snoop around the insides. 

Trust us, you'll want to see what the designers in charge have done and perhaps even copy a few ideas!

1. Full of charm

This lovely home welcomes you from the get go, with gorgeous potted flowers and a dark wood and white colour scheme to die for!

5. Secluded amongst the trees

This tall but narrow home with a modern extension is amazingly picturesque. With those solar panels it also looks eco-friendly!

6. Simply constructed

With no over the top exterior styling, it's the garden that adds a little more pizzazz.

7. Black wooden box

Family homes don't have to be traditional as this amazing black wooden box design proves! The flat roof construction might also have actually made it cheaper.

8. Almost symmetrical

With a cut-out roof, this house doesn't look so symmetrical that it could have been built from Lego, which gives it some real personality.

9. Lovely family bungalow

We don't think you'd miss stairs if you lived here, do you?

10. Those colours!

What a way to zing up a traditional panelled family home. Just wait until you see inside!

11. Stylish minimal design

A standalone home that represents affordable family housing and stylish design.

12. How about something different?

If you're an eco-family, a small shingled woods home could be amazing for you!

13. Amazing glazing

The glazing in this house really sets it apart from other new builds, and the interior is fabulously light!

14. Modern meets traditional

Part modern home, part rustic barn? This design is incredible, offering the perfect combination of new and old (looking).

16. Avant garde design

We do like the odd avant garde home! This simple wooden box would be such fun for a family to live in.

We spy some eco credentials on this house! What a way to future-proof and lower energy bills, which is vital in a busy family home.

This oversized roof design is so cool! With a large amount of the living space up in the roof, the rooms are really interesting.

Blue and orange never looked so good! This plot is great too, with enough space for a vegetable patch.
