If you’re thinking about redesigning your home. Have you thought about adding a family room? A family room is a great option. It provides a place for you to relax with your kids, watch TV, share some family time or play a board game. You may have another room that you can use for impressing guests or dining with family and friends, but if you don’t, it doesn’t matter, as you can make one room perfect for both entertaining and cosying up on the sofa with the family.
So, let’s look at how to create the ultimate family room.
Start with the sofa
You can begin designing your family room by choosing the absolute perfect sofa. It’s here that you’ll all cuddle up together for the movie or sit together and chat about every day things. There are lots of options to choose from. You can get contemporary leather sofas that have plenty of space and even work as a recliner. Each member of your family will be able to stretch out and relax in total comfort. Worried about kids damaging an expensive piece of furniture? You might want to think about getting for a few throws for your sofas. Throw stylish blankets over them to protect the sofa from spills, rips and tears.
What about the TV?
The bigger, the better might be the best option here. After all, a lot of families huddle together to watch a movie without heading to the silver screen. These days, you can get massive TVs stretching to 85 inches if you have the money. If you don’t have the money, 50 inch TVs are more than affordable and probably big enough for a family of four. The TV can be mounted on the wall, ensuring that you don’t need a TV stand that will take up room on the floor. When you want to use the TV, it can be pulled out for the perfect viewing option and make sure that everyone gets a great experience watching a film.
Hidden storage options
You might also want to think about furniture that provides hidden furniture storage options. When you have kids, it’s easy for rooms to quickly become cluttered and look a mess. But if you have a footrest that opens to include a storage space for games and films or a sofa with a drawer built in it can make keeping things tidy a simple choice.
The right flooring
You also need to think about the flooring for the room. Laminate flooring is a fantastic option here. With laminate flooring, you can make sure that the room looks great and is also easy to clean. This is ideal if you have young children who may constantly be creating spills that you need to clean up. With laminate flooring, you can just wipe them away.
A modern fireplace
Last but not least, you can add a modern fireplace to your new family room. Modern fireplaces look wonderful and add a real elegance to the room design. They can even be fitted into the wall, making the perfect cosy yet contemporary feature for your family room.
