Having a family room is one of the best additions to any home. Whilst its always good to have a formal, main living area, a family room or snug is always great for spending valuable one on one time with your family. There are so many ways in which you can create the perfect atmosphere and style for your family room, making it homely, inviting and warm.
One of the key components to any rooms overall feel is the décor, from colours to themes and designs. Stick to a neutral colour scheme, working with creams, greys and browns. Having neutral colours work perfectly to create a soft, warm feel to the room and this is the exact feel you want when it comes to a cosy living area. The perfect thing about neutral colouring is that you can add complimentary colours through your details such as cushions and throws, which are also great features to add to a living area. Think about cream walls, complimented by oak furnishings and grey or brown features such as sofas, cushions, curtains etc. This will create a beautifully stylish, cosy overall look.
Keep it practical
In this day and age, with so much technology and digital interaction, its so important to keep up with spending special time with the family. Gathering together in the family room is exactly whats needed to keep those special bonds and spend quality time together. Of course, the best way to really engage with your family is through board games, watching films and general socialising. Make sure your living area has enough seating to fit your family, this way you can all get cosy and settle in for a good film, or you can spread out and play an intense game of Monopoly. Whatever works best for you and your family, making sure the room is practical to your needs is most important. Added bean bags or tables to play your games on and chill out are great as you can never have too much space, and board games can often take up a lot of room! Adding a nice television accompanied by a video gaming system could be great fun to get the family interacting and working together, or against each other, competing to win.
Character and style
Whilst making sure your room is practical enough for the rest of your family, its always important to remember your homes overall décor and style. Keeping your family room similar to the rest of your homes interior design will ensure your home flows perfectly and fits together really well. Why not look at adding elegant touches such as fancy lighting to add to the ambiance of the room, a nice rug to create extra aesthetical pleasure, or even just candles dotted around the room to emphasise the welcoming atmosphere. One very good feature to add into any home, especially the family room, is family photographs. What makes a room scream family time more than beautiful photos to remind you of the great memories youve all had together. Adding to the overall look of the room, whilst also adding character and a personal touch, photographs are perfect for capturing that family feel and creating the perfect atmosphere for your family space.
