Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:52:15 AM
Since the family room has to cater to adults and kids, it should contain elements that all family members enjoy. Scour your home from storage to other rooms and find things than can be use in your family room. You can decorate the room with old furniture after having it reupholstered, matching it with a throw rug that can animate the effect of the vintage furniture.
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.
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.
Here, this family room’s warm palette of red, brown, and burnt orange is punctuated by vibrant aqua glass vases on the coffee table. Two rugged leather sofas face off over the round table, squared by another couch upholstered in \"Natura Lattice\" from Giant Textiles. The furniture’s U-shaped configuration is oriented towards the television, since this ever-growing family of six frequently gathers here for movies and sporting events. A colorful oil painting by artist Sally Bowring adds scale while complementing the room’s color scheme.
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.
Color Choices and Window Treatments. Since this room is to be used mostly by family, the colors you choose should be those you love. If you like light, neutral colors, by all means go for it! You may prefer darker hues, such as rich burgundies or deep blues. These are fine too - just remember, darker colors will make the room appear smaller. As far as windows go, you can use any type of blinds, shades, drapes or curtains you like. If you want the room to appear light and airy, go for mini-blinds or shades in light, neutral colors that can be drawn up when you like. If you prefer a more private room, heavier drapes or boldly patterned curtains are good choices. You may even want to consider wood shutters that can be pushed back when you like. Light walls look great with darker upholstery and leather. Any tones that complement or contrast each other will further add depth and interest to the room. Just remember, this room is specially made for you and your family to enjoy, so make it your own! Use all of the colors, fabrics, and accessories that are your favorites to make it a room in which you will truly enjoy relaxing after a hard day's work.
