DESIGNING YOUR FAMILY ROOM




Some family rooms look edgy and modern, while others seem coordinated and traditional. Whatever your design style, the family room is a place to gather together with those you love. Since the comfort and style of the room helps set the tone for the time you spend there, make the most of your space. Also, keep in mind, lighting, rooms should be illuminated to accommodate the user's needs. You will need to divide it up into activity areas.
Include task lighting, possibly ambient light and natural lighting. (Refer to my previous posts on lighting). And your flooring needs to be durable and easy to keep clean. (Refer to my post on flooring for lots of ideas). And like all rooms, be sure to keep your design balanced.







The family room is designed to be a place where family and guests gather for group recreation; talking, reading, watching television, and other family/ group activities. It’s an informal all purpose room. Sometimes, the family room is located adjacent to the kitchen, and at times, flows into it with no visual breaks. Sometimes, a family room has doors leading to the back yard or specific outdoor living areas such as a garden, deck, or patio. And for a lucky few, it’s just a room on it’s own.














The distinction between a family room, a living room, and a recreation room may be fluid. In homes with more than one, the living room is usually the more formal room, often reserved for guests and special occasions. The family room is about communication and sharing time together, whether it’s watching television or watching a fireplace.
