Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:40:02 AM
Accents and Accessories Plants make any room more attractive, and the den is no exception. Use greenery to decorate the room, and consider several light sources for the ones who love to read. A floor lamp placed beside a chair makes the perfect place to cozy up and read a book. Table lamps on each end of the sofa further enhance the cozy, relaxed atmosphere. Overhead light should be avoided as it can be harsh and glaring. For the walls, decorate with pictures and prints that reflect your own tastes and personality.
There's a formula to creating a magical monotone room, and Ashley Stringfellow of Modern Glam created the perfect space by incorporating tons of texture to liven up her living room. The pops of blush tones in accents combined with her paneled wall make for a visually interesting space to curl up in with a book.Family rooms are a very popular space in the home where the family relaxes and come together to enjoy TV, study and other activities. Since the room is well used and lived in, the furniture undertakes heavy usage and the décor looses its freshness quickly.
Choose one central theme for the room. Does your family love watching movies or listening to music? Design the room in a way that resembles a theatre or music room. Arrange the sofa and a couple of club chairs closely around the coffee table in a way that all of the furnishings face a big screen television. You might also divide the room into sections; a corner with chair, ottoman and floor lamp for the avid reader, another section for the gamers in the family. If your family enjoys playing pool, ping pong or foosball, why not leave 1/2 of the space open as a game room? This works especially well if you have a very large family room.
A simple change in furniture arrangement gives any room a new look. If you can change the traffic flow of the room you'll find it has a different feel altogether. If there are multiple focal points in your room change focus to from the old point to a new one.
Once you've identified all the necessary functions that the new family room needs to accommodate, you'll want to start designing the details such as fireplaces, the TV location, and furniture layouts. The primary issue with incorporating a fireplace in a family room is that it competes for the same space as the TV. There are many ways to solve this problem, with the obvious one being placing the TV above the fireplace. Be careful with this solution, though, as it can lead to an uncomfortably high viewing angle. Often incorporating a television that is adjacent to the fireplace, or arranging a seating group that is at right angles where one side faces a television and the other side faces a fireplace can solve this problem. When possible we like to expand the family room addition to the outside by adding French doors or sliding doors. A deck or patio outside a family room can help make a smaller room feel larger. A well designed family room can serve many purposes if well thought through in the planning stages. This often means thinking ahead and planning the type of furniture, the size and location of the television, and the location of the fireplace. But once you figure out all the pieces of the puzzle, they can be assembled into an artful solution that integrates into the existing house and provides a new space that will serve your family well for many years in the future.
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.
