Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:40:23 AM
If your family room already has a monochromatic color scheme, use other colors. Move away from standard accessories for color and add a chair, a bean bag or a rug that is full of color which brings a new energy to the room. You can add a study table with book shelves or a TV theatre system, whatever the add-in it should be vibrant and should appeal to the whole family complementing the color scheme at the same time.
Since the family room has to cater to adults and kids, it should contain elements that all family members enjoy. Scour your home from storage to other rooms and find things than can be use in your family room. You can decorate the room with old furniture after having it reupholstered, matching it with a throw rug that can animate the effect of the vintage furniture.
Often a family room plays many roles, so it's important to design the space to allow for the functions you need. Here are some things to consider: 1. While it's nice to have a separate media room, often the space or funds are not available for this luxury. Consider designing the family room to accommodate movie night by incorporating room darkening black-out shades and the necessary electronic equipment and speakers. 2. If you often need a place for extra guests to sleep, a family room can be converted easily to a sleeping area if you incorporate the right furniture. A queen size sleeper sofa can comfortably sleep two (look for ones with an inflatable mattress topper for additional comfort. Also standard size sheets will fit better since the mattresses are as thick as a conventional ones). If additional sleeping space, or individual beds are desired for activities like kid's sleepovers, then look for furniture such as ottomans and chairs that fold out to single beds. If you have the space, you may also be able to incorporate a day bed. For additional sleeping, look for a day bed with a trundle below (these are also great for kid's bedrooms for a friend who sleeps over). 3. One of the complaints we frequently hear about homes is that the dining room is too small for big family get togethers. But when asked how often people entertain large groups, it is often only once or twice a year. A family room addition can help solve this problem if space is designed in for a large expanding table. 4. A large table is also useful in a family room because inevitably kids will end up doing their homework where the family gathers. A large table is a perfect multipurpose addition to the family room. To save space, it can even be placed with an end against a wall surface, and pulled out when additional seating is needed.
Wallpaper murals are a quick and affordable way to dress up your walls. They have become very popular because of their classic and trendy styles. They are easy to hang but you must make certain your walls are clean and straight. Most murals come prepasted and will typically include easy to follow instructions to help make your experience a breeze. Stencils can bring out the best features of wall mural and you do not need to be an artist. There are many stencils that are available for decoration that only require a simple rubbing technique and will adhere to your wall easily. Wall murals can complete a decorating theme and compliment accessories and other wall decorations.
Add family-themed accessories. It's important that you use those items that are meaningful to your family in the this room. Display plenty of family photos on the walls, and even feature those crafts that your children created in school. Photos taken on a fun vacation can be displayed on a coffee or sofa table; if your family loves to play chess or checkers, leave the set sitting out on a game table. All of these things make your family room look cozy and lived-in.
The way the economy has been lately most of us are on a strict budget. For an inexpensive idea you can make the theme your family. You can choose pictures of your family in poised or candid shots. They can be blown up to poster size and can be pictured in black and white. Another idea for your theme can be architectural designs or photos of flowers and gardens. With today's technology any digital picture can become a work of art. The most intimidating part of decorating your walls with art is choosing the right frame to compliment both the image and your décor. Often a thin black frame is the most complimentary to both the art work and your décor. Think simple and watch your walls come alive with exuberance. The family room can tend to have too much energy surrounding it. With wallpaper you can have a calming effect with soft patterns and colors that create an airy feeling and will be indicative for that mood you wish to capture. Another trend seems to be decorating with wall stickers or lettering. Wall décor quotes are a fast and easy way to add that special touch. Personalized lettering transfers your thoughts onto your walls with no mess, sweat or expensive trips to the home supply store.
