The Family Room: Create the Perfect Space with These Tips

by Support Team .

Friday, April 15, 2016

If you have a family room, you probably have a mish-mosh of themes and décor going on in it right now, right? Most people do not give their family rooms a second thought and they simply just use it as an overflow room or a room where everyone can gather and watch TV. If you are searching for something more for your family room, we will go over some ideas below and we think you will like them.

1. Ditch the Tech in Your Family Room

If you do not like the fact that your family is always using some sort of technology to keep them entertained, consider turning your family room into a room where the family does something together. For example, you could have a family gam night or you could read books together. Ditching technology is a great way to spend time together.

On the other hand, if you want to have a space where everyone uses their technology, consider turning the family room into the entertainment room.

2. Combine Elegance with Family Room

You can easily keep your family room chic while ensuring it is geared toward your family as well. For example, choose chic colors along with elegant furniture pieces such as a large, full wall entertainment center unit.

3. Keep the Family Room Open

Instead of enclosing the room and shutting off areas of the room, keep an open floor plan and do not connect any two pieces of furniture together. For example, if you have a couch and a recliner, do not touch them side by side and keep them separated. You also do not want to have an end table connecting them either, but rather leave a space between the table and the chair.

4. Create Contrast in Your Family Room

When it comes to the colors on the walls, make sure to choose a light and dark color scheme, which will create a beautiful contrast. You can paint the colors a lighter color and then paint the trim a darker color to really draw in your eyes. When choosing the paint colors, make sure you choose colors that match your décor and theme.
