Think big. When it comes to the furnishings in your family's room, think bulky and over-stuffed. Nothing is more relaxing that climbing into a big club chair to cozy up under a throw while the fireplace crackles in winter! Whether you choose a sofa and love seat with a plaid or striped fabric upholstery or rich leather, go for those large, sturdy looking pieces. Large, over-stuffed throw pillows, nubby accent rugs and cozy throw blankets are great and useful accents to include, and they add splashes of color to the room.
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.
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.
