To help your family get the most enjoyment from this room it's a good idea to have family members contribute a wish list of features that they would most like to see in their family room. A family room is functional but a fun place for children and adults alike. Creating that balance an uncluttered look is difficult but workable. Get everyone involved and most importantly be creative. Remember this room is a great place to hang out, enjoy some pop corn and reminisce. When it comes to decorating the walls of the family room there are no set rules. Family room layouts vary from home to home and also from region to region. Some designs have kitchens or open spaces that flow right into the family room. Some home owners are fortunate enough to have a fireplace as the focal point of the room. Some family rooms have entire walls filled with built in cabinets that house the entertainment center for the room. It is likely that there will be at least one wall that you need to decorate. You need to gather the entire family together and come up with a theme that suits all of you best.
Often a family room plays many roles, so it's important to design the space to allow for the functions you need. Here are some things to consider: 1. 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.
A simple change in furniture arrangement gives any room a new look. If you can change the traffic flow of the room you'll find it has a different feel altogether. If there are multiple focal points in your room change focus to from the old point to a new one.
