Family Room. Saturday , September 08th , 2018 - 03:58:23 AM
Are you ready? It’s before and after time! I could not be more excited to share this Family Room redesign with you. I worked with Room & Board to transform the space and I am absolutely joyful about how it turned out. The room is full of light and color. It’s comfortable and inviting. It’s practical and useful. And now we spend at least 70% more time in the room than we used to. Not joking. And more on that in a bit.
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'.
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.
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.
Add family-themed accessories. It's important that you use those items that are meaningful to your family in the this room. Display plenty of family photos on the walls, and even feature those crafts that your children created in school. Photos taken on a fun vacation can be displayed on a coffee or sofa table; if your family loves to play chess or checkers, leave the set sitting out on a game table. All of these things make your family room look cozy and lived-in.
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.
