Tania Carter. Family Room. November 21st , 2018.
Family rooms are an integral part of any home. Whether in a one-bedroom apartment or a sprawling ranch housing six children plus dogs and friends, these are the spaces in which everyone can gather and relish each other’s company. Read on for some of our favorite family rooms.
To add some finishing touches to your family room walls decorate with wall mirrors. They bring you both style and function and will add a warmth and beauty to the room. They can make small spaces appear larger and add a brilliance that brightens up the entire room. They are available in many sizes, styles, finishes and materials. With innovative hanging options and frames of all kinds your choices are unlimited. There are mirrors to match anyone's budget and décor. They start under one hundred dollars and you can find mirrors in leather to metal finishes that will match your furniture and accessories. Flexible lighting is a necessity in a room as multi-functional as the family room is. Most call for a combination of over head wall and table lighting. Lighting will help create the mood you are after. Especially popular for home theatres are wall sconces that provide soft and glowing light. Wall sconces combined with black ceiling tile can resemble the night sky.
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.
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.
have a lot of people filling the room. Decorating a family room is very easy. Framed family photos add a nice touch and are great conversation starters when you have guests visiting. Also, neatly placing books on your coffee or end tables will provide reading material when you want to turn the television off, and have a quiet place for reading. And, add a few throws or afghans, not only to add color, but to warm up and relax while watching a movie or reading a good book! And, if you decide to serve food in your family area, having snack tables or serving trays with stands will not only keep the food off of your nice furniture, but are very easy to clean up. And most of these trays with stands can be folded and conveniently stored away. Using these ideas will create a family room designed for a large group of people to entertain, for a few to gather and have conversation, or for one just to kick back and relax with a good book. Whatever the purpose, make it a multi functional space that is comfortable and includes your own personal style!
The family room is a room for many uses. Whether you are watching television, playing games, or just gathering for conversation, your family room should be a relaxing atmosphere designed as a multi-purpose room. Most family rooms are designed around a media center with a television, stereo, game systems, or your family computer. And with all these electronics comes movies, CD's, or games. It is essential to have storage for these items with good organization. there are many pieces of furniture specifically built for organizing these items. A lot of entertainment centers are designed to hold not only the television, but separate space to store DVD's, stereo's, or video games. However, the flat screen television has become more popular, especially since it doesn't take up so much space. A lot of homes have the flat screen television mounted to the wall, especially over the fireplace as the focal point of the room. You can even purchase different style frames for your flat screen television for added decor. In this case, when the television is mounted to the wall, separate storage pieces can be used for your movies and such. DVD/CD racks, or shelves which mount to or lean on the wall are great options for storage.
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
