Once you've identified all the necessary functions that the new family room needs to accommodate, you'll want to start designing the details such as fireplaces, the TV location, and furniture layouts. The primary issue with incorporating a fireplace in a family room is that it competes for the same space as the TV. There are many ways to solve this problem, with the obvious one being placing the TV above the fireplace. Be careful with this solution, though, as it can lead to an uncomfortably high viewing angle. Often incorporating a television that is adjacent to the fireplace, or arranging a seating group that is at right angles where one side faces a television and the other side faces a fireplace can solve this problem. When possible we like to expand the family room addition to the outside by adding French doors or sliding doors. A deck or patio outside a family room can help make a smaller room feel larger. A well designed family room can serve many purposes if well thought through in the planning stages. This often means thinking ahead and planning the type of furniture, the size and location of the television, and the location of the fireplace. But once you figure out all the pieces of the puzzle, they can be assembled into an artful solution that integrates into the existing house and provides a new space that will serve your family well for many years in the future.

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.

This creates a very social atmosphere, great for both entertaining and casual nights. The 'social kitchen' often features a large island, which provides space for preparing and cooking food as well as a surface for eating or simply helping the kids with homework!

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.
Teresa Klein Kitchen, 2018-12-04 04:15:35. When choosing furniture for your kitchen, ask yourself if you want to use art as inspiration behind your furniture choices. Modern art employs simple shapes, clean lines and bold color choices. The fewer design elements, the happier the artist becomes. A kitchen chair, for example, will consist usually of a single-piece seat that sits on four straight legs. The kitchen cabinets should be in simple shapes: squares or rectangles with simply shaped handles. These cabinets should be in bold colors or white. Chrome handles are common in the modern kitchen. If these ideas do not appeal to you, your kitchen might be based upon other design elements.
Sylvia Sweet Kitchen, 2018-12-06 02:51:29. When it comes to designing the modern kitchen, people typically take one of two design paths. The first path uses modern art as inspiration to create the overall look of the design. Kitchens, of course, are everywhere (any kitchen that uses an electric or gas stove and oven can technically be considered modern). But another tack for the kitchen design is to choose the latest and most recent technologically advanced kitchen appliances and features available. These features are then surrounded with decorative elements of the designer's choosing. Qualified modern designers will help you figure out a balance between the two tacks.
Tracey Gamble Kitchen, 2018-12-06 02:51:17. For the purposes of this article, we will use the terms modern and contemporary interchangeably. While in terms of art history the two are very different, when looking at furniture, there is not a lot of difference between the two.
Sheena Cantu Kitchen, 2018-12-07 03:49:15. When you take a modern-art centric approach, you will want to focus on clean lines. Clean lines are incredibly important to the modern art design. Kitchen designers will tell you that, if you want a modern arty 'feel' to your kitchen, you will want clean and straight lines. You want clean counters and clean walls. In this design, modern kitchen will be free of knick knacks or other decorations. Any counter top appliances, like a toaster, a coffee maker or a microwave, will match the kitchen's color scheme and either blend in to the walls and counter surrounding them or stand out starkly in contrast. These kitchens, according to modern designers, are free of wall decorations, flowers or other superfluous elements.
Heather Burnett Kitchen, 2018-12-05 03:57:54. If you choose to take a modern technology approach to your design, modern kitchen designers will search out the to-the-minute appliances and technological kitchen advances. The kitchen will feature a computerized refrigerator, stove, oven and other appliances. It is highly likely that this kitchen will feature a kitchen computer and a console in which portable devices can be charged. It is also likely that there will be a computerized central device that will alert family members to scheduled activities, messages and other plans or notes.
Leona Howard Kitchen, 2018-12-07 03:49:07. How advanced do you want your kitchen appliances to be? Some people love getting kitchen ideas from up to the minute technology websites and catalogs. If, to you, a modern kitchen uses highly technological appliances, look for refrigerators, ranges, etc with computers installed. A range that sits into the counter and uses a computer chip to raise the temperature of the 'burners' is a modern stove. A refrigerator with a computer chip that tells you to buy more cheese because someone ate the last piece earlier in the day would be ideal in your kitchen.
