Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:38:28 AM
To help your family get the most enjoyment from this room it's a good idea to have family members contribute a wish list of features that they would most like to see in their family room. A family room is functional but a fun place for children and adults alike. Creating that balance an uncluttered look is difficult but workable. Get everyone involved and most importantly be creative. Remember this room is a great place to hang out, enjoy some pop corn and reminisce. When it comes to decorating the walls of the family room there are no set rules. Family room layouts vary from home to home and also from region to region. Some designs have kitchens or open spaces that flow right into the family room. Some home owners are fortunate enough to have a fireplace as the focal point of the room. Some family rooms have entire walls filled with built in cabinets that house the entertainment center for the room. It is likely that there will be at least one wall that you need to decorate. You need to gather the entire family together and come up with a theme that suits all of you best.
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.
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'.
If you ever reach a point where you decide to move and have to sell your house, the fact that the home has a family room will make it an attractive prospect to potential buyers. Seeing that a home on the market has this extra room that other homes nearby might not have not only makes your home worth more, but puts it ahead of the competition when it comes to being sold. It isn't uncommon for the value added to the home by a family room to surpass the initial cost of building it before long. Knowing what you know now, doesn't make sense to get started on your family room addition? The sooner you do, the sooner your family can enjoy their comfortable new space. Not only that, but adding it soon rather than later will allow you get a jump on getting increased value out of your home. The family room is where your family gathers to relax, watch television, play cards, listen to music, put together a jigsaw puzzle or just unwind. While you want every room in your home to be beautiful and appealing, the family room is where you can more or less do what you please. Below, you will find some great ideas for making your family room one that is both welcoming and original, incorporating the interests of your family members.

Furniture. Every den should have a sofa, bookshelves and a couple of chairs with ottomans. If you or someone in your family is a voracious reader, consider floor to ceiling bookshelves flanking both sides of a fireplace. Your television may be kept in an armoire, so that when you are not watching it can be hidden from view. You may want to consider an entertainment center or office set-up in one corner if your family often plays games, listens to music or uses the computer.
