Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:37:03 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.
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.
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.
If you could only choose one room in your home to put your heart and soul into designing, the living room would top the list. It’s that treasured (and often off-limits) space that sets the tone for your entire decorating style.
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'.
The family room is usually arranged around a focal point, so by changing the way the main feature appears can change the look of the room. A new entertainment center or a LED television can make this change, and other tricks can be retiling the fireplace or replacing the mantle. If the window is the focal point redecorate the windows.
