Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:37:01 AM
Are you ready? It’s before and after time! I could not be more excited to share this Family Room redesign with you. I worked with Room & Board to transform the space and I am absolutely joyful about how it turned out. The room is full of light and color. It’s comfortable and inviting. It’s practical and useful. And now we spend at least 70% more time in the room than we used to. Not joking. And more on that in a bit.
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.
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.
Where an addition is placed on a house will vary depending on the layout of the home and actual site conditions. If there is space on the site that allows for a family room addition on the main level of a home, I often look for a location near the kitchen. If there is no space on the site for a ground level addition, we'll either look at a location such as in an unfinished basement, or consider adding onto a second story. One recent trend we are finding is locating a family space adjacent to bedrooms, especially if the space is located adjacent to kid's bedrooms. This family room space often becomes the kid's 'hang out space'.
Area rugs will be able to pull the family room together and also give a defined space and gives the area a more general coziness. A rug can make a disjointed room turn into a beautiful room. The area rug can also be your focal point since such a room may often times lack one and can provide color and patterns to the backdrop of pieces of furniture that can otherwise be considered unexciting and plain.
The family room is a room for many uses. Whether you are watching television, playing games, or just gathering for conversation, your family room should be a relaxing atmosphere designed as a multi-purpose room. Most family rooms are designed around a media center with a television, stereo, game systems, or your family computer. And with all these electronics comes movies, CD's, or games. It is essential to have storage for these items with good organization. there are many pieces of furniture specifically built for organizing these items. A lot of entertainment centers are designed to hold not only the television, but separate space to store DVD's, stereo's, or video games. However, the flat screen television has become more popular, especially since it doesn't take up so much space. A lot of homes have the flat screen television mounted to the wall, especially over the fireplace as the focal point of the room. You can even purchase different style frames for your flat screen television for added decor. In this case, when the television is mounted to the wall, separate storage pieces can be used for your movies and such. DVD/CD racks, or shelves which mount to or lean on the wall are great options for storage.
