Few living spaces are more impressive than a well-designed two-story great room. With its soaring ceilings, abundant natural light, and seemingly endless space for design opportunities, the two-story great room is the centerpiece of a luxury home that will consistently inspire its residents and guests alike.

The two-story great room is also an opportunity for homeowners to showcase their interior design style with a wide array of focal points and features throughout the room. Whether it’s a fireplace wall, an accent ceiling, or a grand lighting fixture, there are many ways to enhance this grand space.

Explore a collection of our favorite two-story great room designs from stunning Toll Brothers model homes across the country, and draw inspiration for your own new luxury home.

Elevate Your Space with a Fireplace Accent Wall

An indoor fireplace naturally creates a warm, welcoming ambiance in any space. In a two-story great room, the high ceilings offer an additional opportunity to create an eye-catching accent wall around this feature, providing a stunning focal point for the room.

      I have owned two Toll Brothers homes in the past, and I am an interior designer. I truly appreciate the innovation and the creativity that Toll Brothers designs provide. We are currently in the market for a new home and very open to location, hoping to find some thing in Orlando/ Melbourne Beach area and hoping Toll Brothers has some developments for us to consider
