Think about things like board games, music instruments, televisions, video game systems and other accessories that everyone in the family uses for entertainment. If you have a family room, you can take all of those things and put them in one place, freeing up space in the other rooms where they were before.A family room can also serve as a hub between frequently traveled rooms like the kitchen, the balcony outside, the basement and any other area that is family members and guests visit often. Using your family room addition for ease of access between rooms is just another advantage that you and your family can get from making this part of your home improvement project, but the benefits don't end there. Since adding a room is an easy job for many contractors, the sizes that family rooms come in are designed to fit into virtually any homeowner's budget. Whether you're a new family with only one child, or a large family with many children, a family room can be scaled to meet your specific needs as far as size and amenities are concerned. Perhaps the biggest benefit that many homeowners don't realize comes with a family room addition, however, is that, like many home improvement projects, it can do a lot to add to a home's value.

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.
