A den or family room is usually less formal than a living room, and designed for the family to use in order to enjoy reading, watching television or other activities. A den, instead of being decorated to impress others, should be decorated the way you want it - in a way that makes you feel the most comfortable and relaxed. This article offers tips and ideas for making your den a special room that is meant specifically for the family. Many people opt to make their den or family room small and cozy, while others like a large, spacious den with plenty of room. Either way, you will get some great ideas here.
When you are decorating this room remember that it can become a definite magnet for clutter. Books, DVDs, VHS tapes, magazines, and scattered toys will end up being this room's best friend and worst enemy. Instead of using open shelves, try closed cupboards with doors. On the shelves inside label several different baskets and boxes so that everyone knows where things go when they are put back. With this in mind, you can also add storage trunks. They can double as a coffee table and a place to store some more stuff such as board games or coloring books and crayons.
Remember that the point of this room is comfort. So make sure that you create a room that is cozy and practical so that no one gets nervous about spilling a drink or having sticky fingers. Make sure that you have added entertainment to keep the room lively. This includes more than just the TV and computer. Have family games, photo albums, arts and crafts, and jigsaw puzzles to create a warm and inviting place to play or relax
Comfort should be the highest priority when it comes to decorating your family room. Make sure that you get a sofa that's great for curling up on and reading a book or doing homework, or that easily seats three adults for entertaining. Sectionals seem to be the best bet as they offer the best of both worlds when it comes to form and function. Leather sofas and chairs are trendy and very easy to maintain, but make sure that you choose a sofa in a darker color as opposed to white, as we all know what happens whenever a glass of red wine gets spilled on anything white
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.
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.
Interior decoration ideas provide good guidance for family rooms you can use one decorative piece or piece of furniture as the focal point and decorate around it. One high quality piece of furniture, electronics or a painting can carry the effect of the whole room and you can decorate around it. Be careful and don't over decorate, since all the family members will spend time there space is important. A good suggestion is having multi-tasking furniture that can be opened and folded back to save space.
