Family Room. Saturday , November 17th , 2018 - 01:39:28 AM
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.
Using your imagination and materials that you already have around the house can be an inexpensive way to turn that monotone dull wall into a wall that is filled with your personality. For my own family room this is what happened. I was amazed at my husband's unique display on one of our walls. My husband likes to build and play around with many materials you could say he is a fixer upper. He had so many tools lying all around the garage that we were unable to park are cars inside of it. He realized he had to do something to tidy up and because of this fact his creative energy over flowed. Many of the tools he acquired over the years were antiques and had unique characteristics. He first sketched a design on paper and then transferred his tools to the family room wall. This display has given the wall texture and is a conversation piece to all that view it. This display has succeeded in removing the clutter from the garage and we now have ample parking space and a beautiful wall to show off.
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.
Often a family room plays many roles, so it's important to design the space to allow for the functions you need. Here are some things to consider: 1. While it's nice to have a separate media room, often the space or funds are not available for this luxury. Consider designing the family room to accommodate movie night by incorporating room darkening black-out shades and the necessary electronic equipment and speakers. 2. If you often need a place for extra guests to sleep, a family room can be converted easily to a sleeping area if you incorporate the right furniture. A queen size sleeper sofa can comfortably sleep two (look for ones with an inflatable mattress topper for additional comfort. Also standard size sheets will fit better since the mattresses are as thick as a conventional ones). If additional sleeping space, or individual beds are desired for activities like kid's sleepovers, then look for furniture such as ottomans and chairs that fold out to single beds. If you have the space, you may also be able to incorporate a day bed. For additional sleeping, look for a day bed with a trundle below (these are also great for kid's bedrooms for a friend who sleeps over). 3. One of the complaints we frequently hear about homes is that the dining room is too small for big family get togethers. But when asked how often people entertain large groups, it is often only once or twice a year. A family room addition can help solve this problem if space is designed in for a large expanding table. 4. A large table is also useful in a family room because inevitably kids will end up doing their homework where the family gathers. A large table is a perfect multipurpose addition to the family room. To save space, it can even be placed with an end against a wall surface, and pulled out when additional seating is needed.
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.
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'.
