Sylvia Sweet. Family Room. November 19th , 2018.
Wouldn't be nice if you had a dedicated room where everyone could slow down and meet up, even if it was just for one night a week, so that you can have fun and relax as a family?If you add a family room to your house, then you'll be able to do just that.You have rooms dedicated to cooking and eating with your family, so why not have one whose specific purpose is to spend time together and have fun?A room addition to your home can improve your home life by giving your family a specific, welcoming place to relax and enjoy each others' company. You can enjoy activities like board games, discussion about the latest news events or movie watching together.Not only does the addition of a family room to your home give you a place to gather as a family and spend time together, but you can use the space to free other rooms spread out across the house as well.
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.
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.
If your home has a family room or den, we’re guessing it’s probably the most popular room in the house (after the kitchen, of course!). It’s the perfect place to hang out, watch movies, play games, or just relax together.Have fun decorating your family room! You already have a living room, so infuse some personality into your den or family room, creating a space which expresses who your family really is. Make it personal with favorite photos, artwork and other objects. Make the space more vibrant by adding bold color, and make it special with a unique family theme.
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.
All changes in the family room should be in line with the needs of all family members. So, you should generally choose the bigger room to include most activities like books and reading table, TV & entertainment system, a place for the PC and an area for babies or kids toys. Storage is a very important point for family rooms to make space. Modern decoration ideas include walls with spaces to place the home theatre system and book shelves with a retractable table for readers.If you're going to remodel your home soon, then you should consider a family room addition as part of your remodeling project. If you're family is anything like many others around the country, then you're no stranger to everyone being on the move at all times. The parents might have work and meetings. The kids have sports practice, music lessons and other obligations outside of school. It seems like everyone always has somewhere that they have to be.
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'.
