Think big. When it comes to the furnishings in your family's room, think bulky and over-stuffed. Nothing is more relaxing that climbing into a big club chair to cozy up under a throw while the fireplace crackles in winter! Whether you choose a sofa and love seat with a plaid or striped fabric upholstery or rich leather, go for those large, sturdy looking pieces. Large, over-stuffed throw pillows, nubby accent rugs and cozy throw blankets are great and useful accents to include, and they add splashes of color to the room.
When you are decorating this room remember that it can become a definite magnet for clutter. Books, DVDs, VHS tapes, magazines, and scattered toys will end up being this room's best friend and worst enemy. Instead of using open shelves, try closed cupboards with doors. On the shelves inside label several different baskets and boxes so that everyone knows where things go when they are put back. With this in mind, you can also add storage trunks. They can double as a coffee table and a place to store some more stuff such as board games or coloring books and crayons.
Using your imagination and materials that you already have around the house can be an inexpensive way to turn that monotone dull wall into a wall that is filled with your personality. For my own family room this is what happened. I was amazed at my husband's unique display on one of our walls. My husband likes to build and play around with many materials you could say he is a fixer upper. He had so many tools lying all around the garage that we were unable to park are cars inside of it. He realized he had to do something to tidy up and because of this fact his creative energy over flowed. Many of the tools he acquired over the years were antiques and had unique characteristics. He first sketched a design on paper and then transferred his tools to the family room wall. This display has given the wall texture and is a conversation piece to all that view it. This display has succeeded in removing the clutter from the garage and we now have ample parking space and a beautiful wall to show off.
Here, this family room’s warm palette of red, brown, and burnt orange is punctuated by vibrant aqua glass vases on the coffee table. Two rugged leather sofas face off over the round table, squared by another couch upholstered in \"Natura Lattice\" from Giant Textiles. The furniture’s U-shaped configuration is oriented towards the television, since this ever-growing family of six frequently gathers here for movies and sporting events. A colorful oil painting by artist Sally Bowring adds scale while complementing the room’s color scheme.
A den or family room is usually less formal than a living room, and designed for the family to use in order to enjoy reading, watching television or other activities. A den, instead of being decorated to impress others, should be decorated the way you want it - in a way that makes you feel the most comfortable and relaxed. This article offers tips and ideas for making your den a special room that is meant specifically for the family. Many people opt to make their den or family room small and cozy, while others like a large, spacious den with plenty of room. Either way, you will get some great ideas here.
To add some finishing touches to your family room walls decorate with wall mirrors. They bring you both style and function and will add a warmth and beauty to the room. They can make small spaces appear larger and add a brilliance that brightens up the entire room. They are available in many sizes, styles, finishes and materials. With innovative hanging options and frames of all kinds your choices are unlimited. There are mirrors to match anyone's budget and décor. They start under one hundred dollars and you can find mirrors in leather to metal finishes that will match your furniture and accessories. Flexible lighting is a necessity in a room as multi-functional as the family room is. Most call for a combination of over head wall and table lighting. Lighting will help create the mood you are after. Especially popular for home theatres are wall sconces that provide soft and glowing light. Wall sconces combined with black ceiling tile can resemble the night sky.
If your home has a family room or den, we’re guessing it’s probably the most popular room in the house (after the kitchen, of course!). It’s the perfect place to hang out, watch movies, play games, or just relax together.Have fun decorating your family room! You already have a living room, so infuse some personality into your den or family room, creating a space which expresses who your family really is. Make it personal with favorite photos, artwork and other objects. Make the space more vibrant by adding bold color, and make it special with a unique family theme.
